Anaheim Police shoot at Women and Children, Unleash K9 dogs

Shocking footage from Anaheim shows police opening fire on women, children and babes in arms in a neighbourhood, after angry residents confronted them on the shooting of a man who fled from them earlier today. One woman, with child in arms, was nearly attacked by a German Shepherd when an officer released it into the crowd. Police are seen firing at close range into hordes of civilians, while women and children scream and duck. Police are reported to have attempted to purchase the videos taken by onlookers immediately following the incident.

Newscasters appear shocked and horrified as the story is broadcast on the evening news. Americans are asking themselves, "What has our country become?"

According to the YouTube description of the video, uploaded by TheSecretStore's channel:

"The video images show police treating people as if they were in Alabama during the civil rights era. Cops shooting at women and children and releasing a K-9 dog that nearly attacked a mother holding her child."

July 21, 2012- "Video captured by a KCAL-TV crew showed a chaotic scene in which officers fired beanbag rounds as some people ducked to the ground while others scattered screaming. A man is seen yelling at an officer even as a weapon is pointed at him; two adults huddled to shield a boy and girl. Meanwhile, a police dog ran into several people sitting on the grass, including a woman and child in a stroller, before biting a man in the arm."

One man said, "They just started shooting."
Police also set a K-9 officer on one woman and a bystander they said were agitating the situation. Said Susan Lopez, "I had my baby with me. My baby! The dog scratched me and then grabbed me." She added, "They shot at me while I was holding a baby!" Another woman yelled, "They just shot at us, they shot at a little kid, too."

A police shooting that left a man dead led to a violent clash as angry witnesses threw bottles at officers who responded with tear gas and beanbag rounds to suppress the crowd, authorities said. The man was shot in front of an apartment complex around 4 p.m. Saturday following a foot chase, Anaheim Sgt. Bob Dunn said. He died three hours later at a hospital. source:http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/nationworld/2018746780_apusanaheimshoot..."

Protesters stormed the Anaheim police station demanding answers, according to the following post on Facebook:

"A group of protesters stormed the lobby of the Anaheim police station Sunday, about half an hour before Police Chief John Welter was scheduled to reveal more details about a fatal officer-involved shooting the night before that sparked a confrontation between an angry crowd and investigators.

Chanting 'No justice, no peace' and holding signs that read 'Justice for Manuel,' a group gathered outside the department at noon, the Orange County Register reported. About an hour later, they were in the lobby."
