[video=youtube;xRDJS5PTzmc]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRDJS5PTzmc[/video] [QUOTE]Anaheim police have shot dead yet another man just a day after killing 24-year old Manuel Diaz. The previous day's shooting sparked a protest against police brutality that was violently broken up by authorities. Police say the second shooting took place on Sunday, when anti-gang crime officers spotted a stolen SUV and started chasing it. Three suspects were said to have jumped out of the SUV, with police continuing their pursuit on foot. The men reportedly opened fire at an officer, and the policeman retaliated by shooting dead one of the shooters. However, eyewitnesses say police shot dead a man who was already handcuffed, OC Weekly reports. Family friends told the [I]Weekly[/I] that the victim was Joel Acevedo, a resident of Anaheim. Residents on the scene allegedly tried to take photos from a second floor of an apartment block, but police obscured their view with flash lights. The second alleged killing took place a few blocks away from the place where 24-year-old Manuel Diaz was gunned down by police on Saturday. In the wake of Diaz's death, roughly 200 people gathered to protest police brutality and pelted cops with bottles. Police attempted to break up the crowds firing beanbag rounds and tear gas. [URL="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MST4RhWdlMQ&feature=player_embedded&has_verified=1"]A shocking video of the riot shows[/URL] women and children amongst the panicking demonstrator, fleeing for cover. Footage shows a police dog slipping from an officer’s hand and taking down one of the protesters and biting his arm before being brought under control. [I]“They just released the dog, and I had my baby and my stroller,”[/I] resident Susan Lopez told local television channel KCAL. Demonstrations have raged in Anaheim since Saturday afternoon when Diaz died of his wounds after being shot by cops. On Sunday enraged protesters stormed the local police station amid chants of [I]“no justice, no peace”[/I] and "[I]cops, pigs, murderers.[/I]" Two officers spotted three men, one of whom was Diaz, acting suspiciously in an alleyway, the police's account of the story says. The men tried to run from police, but one of the officers gave chase and fatally shot Diaz next to an apartment complex. A video showing the moments right after the shooting has emerged on YouTube. The video also shows that Diaz’s head was covered in blood, raising doubts about whether the police’s actions were justified. There have also been complaints online that police did not do enough to help the wounded Diaz, who apparently was still twitching at the beginning of the video.

God damn america, fix your fucking police departments already.
Hey it sounds like a good idea to throw bottles at police officers guys.
Scary shit, I live pretty damn close to where this all happened.
[quote]The men reportedly opened fire at an officer, and the policeman retaliated by shooting dead one of the shooters. However, eyewitnesses say police shot dead a man who was already handcuffed[/quote] Don't jump to conclusions, we don't really know what happened yet. As for the rubber bullets and tear gas, protestors were throwing bottles at them. I don't see anything wrong.
Use a real source instead of that RT shit [url]http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2012/07/anaheim-police-shooting.html[/url]
[QUOTE=Crimor;36898728]God damn america, fix your fucking police departments already.[/QUOTE] California =/= All of America. I don't doubt Police from other states suck ass too, but in California it seems like everything is corrupt.
There is a woman with a baby right next to the dog in the video. Left side, she is holding it kinda weird but you can see the legs.

Have you even looked into the article Crimor? Let me give you the excerpt from the OP's article. [quote]Three suspects were said to have jumped out of the SUV, with police continuing their pursuit on foot.

[quote]However, eyewitnesses say police shot dead a man who was already handcuffed, OC Weekly reports.[/quote] Which I have looked at and now seen that it has been retracted from the OC Weekly article. Literally striken out.

[QUOTE=Crimor;36898822]This has happened in several states recently, your police training isn't doing a good enough job filtering out the people who go mad with power.[/QUOTE] "filtering out the people who go mad with power" Because there's totally a "I go mad with power" box that can be checked on the applications. It's impossible to honestly filter it out without giving each and every officer (Parole to Prison Guard) a complete psych evaluation, which would cost the taxpayers a [I]ton[/I], and would keep the police from doing their jobs.

It contributes nothing but further sweeping under the rug scenarios and further corruption. With your mindset, nothing will ever get fixed and the problem will just keep growing.
Americans should react to shootings the way Norwegians does it. Instead of throwing bottles at cops in a fury they should huddle together on the streets and have a Bruce Springsteen concert
I consider myself lucky that I haven't ever even needed to [i]speak[/i] to police. It's bad in Cali.
[QUOTE=QuikKill;36898927]People will say anything to bash America's law enforcement.[/QUOTE] Honestly people only do this because the only American cops who get on the news are the ones deserving to be bashed, at least as far as I've seen. I like to think for every bad cop who abuses his power there are three good ones who do what they're supposed to do, the way they're supposed to do it. But of course they don't get the attention they deserve. Good cops almost never make good news stories.

You dont need to give them a pat on the back for doing what they're being payed to do. Good cops dont magically justify the bad cops. It's time people realized this and stopped being apolgetic children who are afraid to admit police departments [I]may[/I] have some flaws after all.

Because I don't live there, and I don't know what it really is like. It's a simple concept; not arguing without facts and personal experience.
[QUOTE=Ekalektik_1;36899113]Good cops almost never make good news stories.[/QUOTE] No shit, the media won't make a dime of money by selling happy-go-lucky fuzzy warm stories of cops doing good, the only way the media will make money is by selling headlines of "AUTHORITY FUCKS UP AS USUAL!" because they know that it sells more.
Shooting someone who shoots you = police brutality Oh okay
I don't know about American police so I can't comment, but I know in England the institutional racism and corruption of the force in general is ridiculous

[QUOTE=Marbalo;36898972][url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Police_corruption[/url] [/QUOTE] Police corruption in the US is not a huge social problem like it is in Russia, Ukraine, Brazil, India, and Mexico. EDIT: Also I just noticed the wiki doesn't cite that at all.
