ORIGINAL POST, JUNE 5, 8:00 A.M. As Fullerton residents anxiously awaited their City Council recall results on Tuesday night, a group of about a dozen protesters gathered at an Anaheim City Council meeting. The protesters were family members of Caesar Cruz, Justin Hertl, Joe Whitehouse and Martin Angel Hernandez; all shot to death by Anaheim Police as far back as 2003.
UPDATE, JUNE 19, 10:30 P.M.: Before the Anaheim City Council meeting commenced tonight, City Manager Bob Wingenroth made the following statement regarding the June 5 public comment session:
“It is important that we follow up on serious allegations that have been made,” he said. “Therefore, in order to maintain the trust and confidence our residents have with our police department, I, working with our city attorney, am recommending that the city of Anaheim conduct an independent review of major police incidents, including incidents of officer-involved shootings and report back to the city council in an open public workshop session.”
