Emails, tweets, and texts since Friday have been alerting me about how the Anaheim Police Department plan to confront the thousands of protestors expected to march today against police brutality and Anaheim City Council incompetence: with a armed force that looks ready to club heads, stampede, and heaven knows what else.

And, contrary to what you'd think, they're not afraid to show off their toys.

What we can confirm: a full exercise involving hundreds staged at the parking lot of Glover Stadium. A parade of police horses up Anaheim Boulevard in the middle of rush hour. Barricades. Escalated patrols. And that was just Friday.

Just another stroll on a Friday night

They're itching for a fight, so stay safe out there, kids.

Remember, there's two protests today, both starting officially at noon: a peace rally in front of Anaheim City Hall, and the regular Anaheim Cruzaders protest outside the police station. Both explicitly reject violence and vandalism, so keep that in mind.

As for the Weekly's coverage: Dave, Yasmin, Amber, Brandon, and myself will be on the scene. Instead of doing blog posts, follow us on the OC Weekly Twitter feed below.

I'd RATHER DEAL with the Military! The police are NOT making the problem go away! For crying out Loud, there practically the ONLY job where they dont have to be Liable for what they do! Suspention with Pay... Everybody is NOT a GANG MEMBER! Or should I point out BLACKS & LATINO's!

Hi Neighbor!  I am also an Anaheim resident for many years. Let's keep in mind that our city is the largest city in the county, and as such, we reflect the challenges of a major modern city. The neighborhoods called barrios are not new to Anaheim.  Most of the negative traits impacting us (unemployment, school dropouts, teenage pregnancy, and gangs) are more visible in these neighborhoods. The unfortunately fatal police actions and the angry reaction of a significant number of residents, is a reflection of leadership failure from the majority of the City Council.

It is a fact that Latinos are a majority in Anaheim, but we do not vote as we should. It is not a coincidence that the policies to address the problems of these neighborhoods, where many latinos live, are minimal. A couple of minor examples in my area, East Anaheim, where the fatal incident took place.  Except for the nearby church and school parking lots, there is no park or community center for the residents. In another working class neighborhood. Miraloma, it took years to get federal funds to build a park and community center. We do not live isolated from the rest of the country and the world. Hopefully organizations like Somos Anaheim will be able to open a dialogue to seriously address our problems.

Arrest, Legitimately charge, heavily fine and sweep gangbangers, their graffiti vandal teen brothers and culpable parents from Anaheim! We must unite with our police department and fully support the Anaheim Police Association. We must without compromise protect our police officer's right to defend against the overwhelming domination of gangbangers and graffiti vandals. The end of gangbanging in Anaheim is near! James Robert Reade.

As a first generation Latina and a Anaheim resident, I'm simply tired of all the focus on 6 shootings by APD and generalizing the sentiments  of a select group to that of all Latinos in Anaheim. I live in a neighborhood that has seen 3 gang related shootings over a 6 month period that resulted in 2 deaths and 1 wounded. Unfortunate, but in our neighborhood where homeowners are seeing an influx of gang involvement thanks to those apartment dwellers....where is the attention on those gang members to accept responsibility for their actions?

Just Thought To add... That if you don't associate with these people How you know there in a GANG! Most people in groups are ALWAYS PROFILED AS A GANG! Standard procedure, until it happens to you!

RACIST!

 @AnaheimResident That makes perfect sense.  Every gangbanger in Anaheim is personally responsible for the police shooting a guy in the back, then after he was on the ground, executing him with a shot to the head!   Personal responsibility is what its all about pendejos!  Except for cops.  They get a pass because we find their leather boots so fucking sexy.

 @ageofknowledge "...the WRONG kind of immigration" (emphasis added). That is exactly what is up. It is the QUALITY of the immigrants that has changed--the federal government has refused to enforce laws on illegal immigration and as a result, we are now on our way to becoming a third-world country. This is occurring because in the past it was intelligent, hard-working people who came here but now, it is mostly immigrants from the third world; in fact, 85% of immigrants currently come from “developing” countries. So it is the QUALITY of the immigrants that has changed.

 @fc2479 You're the best at killing innocent people and getting paid absurdly exorbitant wages to do so, not to mention getting to retire at 50 and getting huge pensions, plus costing the taxpayers millions in wrongful death suits!  You're also the best at pigging out at the buffet line!  U-S-A!  U-S-A!

 @bradmcdougal836 Ever heard the phrase coplicker before?  it applies perfectly to people who worship authority.  In my opinion these people are usually closet masochists and submissives who need a strong authority figure to keep them in line.  You know, like ... you!

By stopping this invasion that is somehow removed from the squatters scope of reality, we as a nation must forcibly take control of the helm once again, discard the binnacle list, give the command to reverse the ship's course, and chart the conditions that will give to US citizens a decent and comfortable standard of living.

 

This desired result can be obtained without the tsumani of tens of millions of people who think we should speak Spanish, the devastating scorched-Earth deficits left in their wake, and American taxpayers subsidizing the hordes of invaders and Mexico to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars each year such as:

 @bradmcdougal836 CIS is a fucking joke, the laughing-stock of demographers and population specialists everywhere. 

 

Stupid overpaid militarized cops cost a hell of a lot more taxpayer dollars than immigrants you dickhead.  I know that doesn't square with all of the book-learnin' you picked up from Mein Kampf and the Turner Diaries so just ignore it.

@MisterX Yeah, according to the Center for Immigration Studies, 57 percent of all immigrant households in the U.S. get cash, Medicaid, housing or food benefits from the government. The highest rates are for immigrants from the Dominican Republic (82 percent), Mexico and Guatemala (tied at 75 percent). Blah Blah Blah...

 

And yeah, as if a hot white chick wants to date the fucking gardener...
