Anaheim police were investigating a violent melee Saturday night between police officers and an angry crowd. Authorities said the crowd threw bottles and set fires at an intersection, and police used non-lethal force to disperse them. Sgt. Bob Dunn of the Anaheim Police Department said the incident started when two patrol officers tried to approach three men in an alley about 4 p.m. in the 600 block of North Anna Drive and the men fled.

It's hard to say, but the video of the police response looks intensely brutal. What's wrong with a community getting fed up with police shooting its neighbors?

Seems to me that innocent people don’t run from cops.

Can you name a few who should have?

Your very first post and you seem to have a specific answer in mind that you want to hear.

You would make great climatologist.

The only times I ever ran from the cops was when I was guilty. LOL

The members of the community have been shooting a lot more of their neighbors than the police.

I wonder what would have happened to the folks sitting on the grass had they killed the dog the government unionists sicced on them.

The video is not in context - I’d like to hear the policemen’s side of the story. Perhaps they were being pelted with rocks? Don’t know, but cops typically don’t start shooting up a place for no reason - just too much paperwork to fill out.

One other comment. If people want to use their anchor babies as human shields, they’re more than welcome to. But when they get hurt, please don’t go crying to media about it.

Supreme Court of the US has ruled that is not a crime: to run when they see the cops.

I would not say the police response was brutal just proactive and not as proactive as i would have liked to see. This was a classic proto mob situation that if not vigorously squelched can rapidly escalate into a real riot as more and more ‘loosely compacted social matter’ is pulled in by the excitement of the moment and the promise of the joy of arson and looting to follow. I frequently am critical of police agencies specifically because of their obsession with petty rules. However, the police exist to owerawe the rabble and keep them from the streets. This is a classic positive use of police power to protect the community and disperse and if possible strike fear into the hearts of the miscreant class. The people shown here are typical damp American welfare spongers. Appear in large disorderly numbers complete with children for a little street drama carnival with the implied opportunity to loot a few stores. These are the leech class so beloved of the polisucks and the Mahdi. At least for a moment some of them had the fear of g-d put into their hearts. The civil rights criminals will be quick on the scene to try and terrorize the Anaheim PD for doing the right thing; i.e. defending the taxpayers property and enforcing public order for once.

Interesting screen name

A person using it in Gainesville Fla. with a
Master's degree in Information Science?

Could be a coincidence

A Librarian would likely have a wide assortment of information sources
FreeRepublic would be a fascinating site for this process

They should have run faster and smarter. Convoluted reasoning nor submission won't save you when the jack boots feeding off their juice come after you.

I want you to live.

“We were all waiting for him to come and talk to the community and give us an explanation.”

Yeah? Like that was possible with a mob of half crazed “citizens”. n/s

What's wrong with a community getting fed up with police shooting its neighbors?

Welcome to Free Republic. I hope your IQ is high enough to last more than a few weeks. Asking asinine questions may not be the best way to accomplish that.

When the neighbors are all members of the thug culture (or the majority are,) and part of the culture is never rat on your neighbor whether they are criminals or not, and the odds of getting an accurate version of the entire event are laughable, then it is extremely logical that the criminals which prompt law enforcement to shoot them is not a rocket science mystery.

The police don't randomly go into a neighborhood looking for someone to shoot. Resisting arrest is the easiest bad experience to defuse.

Just cooperate. If you have a case to prosecute abuse, there is plenty of time without opting for "suicide by cop."

I was once arrested for non payment of child support despite the fact that I don’t have kids. I explained that I didn’t have kids but didn’t resist.

I spent several hours at the police station but was well treated and even taken back to my car when it was cleared up. The cop didn’t even call a wrecker to tow my car because it was out of the way and the situation would be cleared up one way or the other.

It was a court screw up and no fault of the police or myself.

I’m amazed at how many here on FreeRepublic are readily siding with the criminal cops who shot a bunch of innocent people. I guess conservatives don’t care about freedom anymore!

Right. They ran, therefore there’re guilty. Shoot ‘em.

Last night another Anaheim Cop shot and killed an armed perp, he was a Homey which is all that matters to the “Community” This is a totally separate incident to this story. Things could bubble over fast.

If cops came into my neighborhood and did that we'd of course sue their pants off ~ but the third-worlder's here? Most of them work at embassies and legations in DC and have machine guns at home.

I just don't know what they'd do but the cops don't try their patience either.

Just for fun I did an extensive search on the net for news of any other shooting on North Anna Drive in Anaheim ~ for the last 10 years!

Didn't find any.

So, since you claim the neighbors are shooting more people than the cops, find two!

County property records show that most of the people in that neighborhood are hispanic AND are middle-aged ~ not exactly prime riot candidates.

Did you notice on the videos how many of them spoke English?

What we seem to have here is what is known as a POLICE RIOT.

We don't tolerate that behavior in Virginia.

Eventually we'll find out the guy was out on probation with the stipulation he not consort with any other criminals, so the cop sees him with two buds and says 'parole violation' ~

This happens all the time.

By the time the thought gets properly manipulated in his mind the perp and his buds are running away.

A parole violation is not ordinarily a reason to shoot a guy. The cop has to have one heck of a story to get that one past a grand jury and I just don't see it happening.

This thing escalated to a first class mess-up when the cops began firing into the crowd of neighbors who came out to see what happened.

Remember, this was Saturday afternoon, great California weather, and folks had time to do that. I'm sure they'd do that here, and maybe your neighborhood as well ~ or maybe they don't care and are totally devoid of human emotions where you live ~ but I doubt that. In America most people are simply not prepared to just step over the bodies like they do in Calcutta.

The Detroitification of an entire state proceeds apace...another monument to the Liberal welfare state in the process of formation.
