As OC Weekly reported on Saturday night, chaos ensued in Anaheim when police fired military grade less-than-lethal weapons at residents when they gathered demanding answers after an officer-involved shooting occured. CBS News video shows the attacks and police unleashing a K-9 dog in front of a group of residents, including women and children.
Police have told the media the weapons were deployed because residents were throwing bottles at police. So far, no video footage has surfaced of bottle throwing. A bystander told OC Weekly “a few water bottles were tossed in the street” as residents angrily demanded answers from authorities about why Diaz was shot dead, and riot police rushed in after and “just started shooting everyone.”
