Police: Welcome To Anaheimistan; Now Obey Our Whims or Die

Mao Anaheim police .jpg
Mao: Government officials know best so just quietly obey and go shop to create tax dollars for more lethal police actions and generous pensions
It's a historical fact that the biggest threat to the citizens of any nation isn't outsiders but their own government's police and military--the folks with all the guns, arrest powers and unwavering insistence that their own violence is committed only as a means to peace.

For proof, glance at the history of Iraq, Russia, Syria, Rwanda, Cambodia, Iran, Angola, Bosnia, Egypt, Vietnam, China, Ghana, France, North Korea, Sudan, Italy, Myanmar and on and on.

At various times in its history, United States government agents too have made portions of this nation an abusive police state.

Who in their right mind would want to be a black man living in 1920 Mississippi?

Now in the shadows of the world's most famous amusement park residents of Anaheim are bravely (and in some cases stupidly) confronting the Anaheim Police Department, an at times callous, authoritative government power that isn't accustomed to being questioned even when it executes people.

Crisis always spurs creativity and the most original ideas are presently forming outside of the gates of Disneyland.

Several days ago, nationally-syndicated cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz created this image:

Then yesterday Lalo used a Cop Block photo of excessively armed government agents prepared to turn their weapons on U.S. citizens for this:

One the first Latinos to work with the city council was Joseph Cano, my Great-Uncle, he would agree there is a marginalized city council... he would also be the first to point out that everyone in this situation is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, whether they are gang members or police. He also would draw attention to the fact that violence against our fellow citizens in law enforcement is unacceptable, to vandalize our own community is depraved (there is a non-violent legal approach to the solution through legislation reform), and that both of those fatal shootings were against individuals which are reported to have participated in gang activity... one whom shot back at police. The mother of one suspect is now trying to take $50 million out of the city's already depleted budget for raising an individual who had a history of gang related crime and was stated as "fleeing the scene." Whether he was armed or not... he was running from law enforcement, who may I remind you, are humans who have to deal with parts of our society that some people choose to ignore.  I ask, who are the citizens suppose to sue when these gangs hurt the innocent? There had already been nine homicides in Anaheim as of July 4th, four of which where gang related ... what about those families? Will they see anything like that $50 million? Fat chance. Stop trying to make this a race issue when it is clearly a gang issue... it belittles educated and law abiding Latinos.

Moxley states "excessively armed goverment agents"....

 

I bet that if you went to any other country ending with 'stan' you would be unlikely to find a soldier holding what appears to be a bean bag gun,a less-than-lethal option for law enforcement.  The most harm this cop can inflict is nasty welt, or if he was really accurate, a painful sniper shot to the nuts.

 

But let's not let the truth get in the way of a good story.

 

Bobby Godinez
Bobby Godinez

The truth of the matter is that a majority do not like the ugliness of civil rights ...beacause they have no concern and / or these types of issues do not effect them directly ....also there are those who are ok with others benefitting from those doing the work for social justice type issues or maybe they even benefit themselves but they themselves do not want to make any effort or do any work .

BuT when This is a STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE in law enforcement, What do we expect to happen? Most officers in L.A. are from Orange County, How Long did the O.C. expect before the racist offers start showing there true colors!(1992 Riots) Remember PEOPLE POLICE DON'T GET PUNISHED for Nothing, why should they care and it's starting to show as "WE" as a people exploit the truth as a WHOLE!

 

LA COUNTY + ORANGE COUNTY= UNITY and WE'LL STOP THE UPRISING ISSUE THAT HAS BEEN SWEPT UNDER THE RUG FOR TO MANY YEARS!

Anaheimistan? Are we dismissive here? Have you ever been to the Middle East? Did you serve, or is your rationale jackassedness? I'm willing to venture you know nothing about the history of Iraq, yet alone any of the other names of countries that stumbled out of your rectum.

 

Police State you say? Not even close. How about the realistic State of Declination?

 

These are desperate juvenile tactics, from desperate juveniles with smartphones and Twitter accounts. You have tied yourselves up in such knots of relativist guilt that you're incapable of acknowledging the truth, let alone dealing with it. You make-believe Americans are prepared to chop off your own hands to avoid being seen scratching your asses in public. What makes it worse is you are clinging to something that doesn't even exist.

 

And what could you possibly know about blacks, Mississippi, or even 1920 for that matter? In Los Angeles, Mexican gangs declared "ethnic cleansing zones" in specific parts of the city. They kill whites and blacks. In New Jersey, illegal alien gang members killed college student’s execution style. Illegal aliens murder 19 Americans each day, and sentence to death another 17 innocent citizens through drunk-driving crashes. Where is the outrage? No legal citizen of the United States of America, living under the Constitution and the Bill of Rights should have to live as those who reside near the U.S. - Mexican border, where there are no property rights, no ability to be safe in your own home, and no peace. One dare not go outside without carrying a weapon for protection – and you have the temerity to insult with an asinine statement regarding the mindset of blacks living in 1920? How about blacks living in ancient Egypt or in China, Europe or North America eons before the current occupants? Through stereotyping, pretend reporters often refer to the unconscious, they don't possess the Freudian means or notion of a seething mass of thoughts and desires, only some of which are deemed presentable enough to be admitted to the vile conscious in the hope some of the fecal matter will stick to the conference room walls. In fact, the cognitive model holds that information flows in exactly the opposite direction: connections made often enough in the conscious mind ultimately become unconscious psychobabble.

 

You are a pretender constantly seeking approval from your liberal prick friends and those who support lawlessness and chaos.  You have to illustrate the phony progressive affront to dissimulate to the group to be hyper-relevant. This, certainly, does not tell the whole story. Even those sympathetic to mayhem must question your motives, and as one man to a very little man – I would offer that you are not all there. Reading your seditious pretentious pap, I'd consider you glib, incurious and ill-informed. A phony pundit male protagonist to the rent-a-mob. You're lacking intellectual depth, and like others who feign to write for the Weakly, fatally immature. It must be lonely at the bottom.

 

Take next weekend and drive through Los Angeles. This sprawling county (just as Orange County) is becoming a polyglot nation where extremes of wealth and poverty mirror Third World Mexico. Though this country had just ended two of the most prosperous decades in our history, Los Angeles has become a separate nation. During the 1990s, poverty in LA County did not remain stable or decline, but shot up 49 percent. By 2010, 6.6 million people in LA County lived beneath the poverty line. In Orange County, the poverty rate had soared by 58 percent. The fact that illegal aliens pour into our society, demand citizenship but don't identify themselves as Americans is cause for alarm, and forcing the majority of Americans to push for action. In the Inland Empire of San Bernardino and Riverside counties, poverty exploded by 76 percent and 83 percent, respectively, as did the deluge of illegal aliens. There are over 9 million people of Mexican ancestry in Los Angeles, and we all know that the actual numbers are upwards of 12 million. They do not speak English, up from 72 percent. The biggest threat to any nation is when more than half the people of so vast a region do not speak English; do not listen to the same radio and TV programs; do not read the same newspapers, magazines, or books; do not share the same heroes, history, or holidays; do not have the same respect for law and sovereignty – how can we say we are still one nation?

 

We are on the road to no return if we do not get control of the numbers of illegal aliens coming into this country. The only way America can stop an inexorable decline in standard of living before we reach Third World status is to halt the invasion and blatant birthright fraud. We must decide who we wish to come, and from where. Then we must set our policies and enforce them. Entry into the country must be designed to serve the need of the nation, not the wants of Mexico, its citizens who come here illegally as if normal, or La Raza. America, after all, is for Americans first. Coming to this country is not a right that belongs to anybody that can sneak in and everybody who wants to get here. It is a privilege we Americans alone decide to confer.

 

Far from being moribund, the never-before-seen arrogance and this effort to gain advantage over American citizens by Latinos is a deliberate and proselytizing incline. It has poured into this country, raising specious anti-Americans at every step. They, as do the myriad of cowards of their inclination have a tendency to lash out at those who oppose tens of millions of illegal aliens who have produced tens of millions of anchor babies, assuming that those of us who do not fall in line must be motivated by base prejudices of racism, self-indulgence or the support the child-like claims of Anaheimistan. How dreadful are the curses which the tsunami of illegal aliens lays on its votaries?

 

Yes, sometimes the truth can divisive, incendiary and racially discriminatory if it's been used against Americans for long enough, and has become appropriately taboo as it clearly has in this country. Because according to the growing throngs of sycophants, it doesn't even matter that our decisions are just. What matters is that they are legal. Well, when laws are against those predisposed to lawlessness, then there's something seriously wrong with the laws. Right? Because when the truth has no defense, there is actually, no defense. And when the law has no anchor, it will drift wherever the winds of political expedience blows.

 

And Scott, you seem to know something about blowing. But then again, you would have never added Mexico to the list of Bad Lands due to a terminal yellow spine and tiny shaved balls near the size of a Sparrow's eggs...

1. Living in a lower income area doesnt make you a gangmember. 2. Ask the dozens of little kids what happened the day Diaz was murdered. They will tell you EXACTLY what they SEEN happen. 3. IT IS a historical fact that the biggest threat to the citizens of any nation isn't outsiders but their own government's police and goverenment. Don't believe everything you learned in history class folks. The truth is ugly but covering up the truth will only make matters worse. This isnt just an OC thing. There has always been corruption within the police dept. Im not saying all cops are bad, but what I am saying is there is ALOT of bad cops that we need to get rid of.

The city of Anaheim will probably not have to pay for any of this militarization. They just need to call up the Homeland Security and have them declare these actions as a threat to National Security as outlined in the Patriot act and recent changes within the NDAA. Did the Feds just donate a tank to the city of Anaheim or sell it?  One of you guys just had an article on that.

AnaheimMommy
AnaheimMommy

Mr. Moxley, I have a question for you... Do you just seem to hate any type of authority, the City of Anaheim or just the police departments? You see your articles are extremely one sided.  I know in this country we all have rights no matter if you are a career criminal or not, but what about the rest of us, the law abiding citizens who are not a bunch of thugs or hillbilly rednecks that run around making others feel bad about themselves and/or shooting one another?  Honestly I do not like crime in any fashion and as an Anaheim resident and home owner I don’t appreciate the graffiti, theft, vandalism, drugs, drunks who are sleeping it off on my street in their cars etc… If I could afford to buy a nice house in let’s say Irvine as an example lol… I would have a long time ago, but as it is this is where I choose to call home and would like to see it improve not decline in value. Now that all of the crazies are stirred up and ready to start a fight with anyone anywhere it’s uncomfortable even going to the gas station.  A last Friday afternoon I went to a local ARCO to get some gas and some Latino guy was a total jerk towards me and all I was doing was waiting my turn for the pump. I didn’t appreciate being called dirty names, it’s insulting and rude! I just simply sat in my truck and waited for him to leave, but he still felt that it was necessary to give me the finger and call me names as he drove away. Since I know that I was not in the wrong I just let it go and didn’t do anything to encourage him. I don’t know what some stranger is capable of doing so felt it best to just allow him plenty of room so he could leave.  I’m not sure what your agenda is with all of the inflammatory articles, but I certainly wish you would stop! You are not making matters any better or accomplishing anything positive, but you are stirring up more animosity amongst the public.

I don't think we know all the facts in these two shootings, but what we do know is that the first "victim" was running away from the police and the second pulled a gun. Commenting on the second case is just an insult to anyone's intelligence. In the first case, again, we don't know what happened, but I think it is safe to say that in the course of the chase, adrenaline was up and the police felt threatened. Here's a novel concept: when the police want to speak with you, cooperate. Realize that they frequently have to deal with life threatening situations and the scumbags of sociey, and do everything in your power to let them know that you represent neither. So when you deal with the cops, keep your hands where they can see them, move slowly, and remain calm. In all the cases where I've dealt with police, I can't think of any situation where they weren't polite to me because I showed them respect, and above all, didn't try to run away when they wanted to question me.

 @AnaheimMommy 

 

So you did absolutely nothing, and some guy out of the blue gives you the finger

 

That's about as believable as saying an unarmed guy you shot in the back was reaching for an imaginary weapon. 

and the sad thing, is the basic reason you're going into you anti-beaner rant, is to make us believe the white cops in your neighborhood don't have the exact same attitude. 

 

Anahiem PD Officer Bradly Wagner used his squad car to sexually assault latina "Anahiem Mommie" in that same neighborhood, so did that make you proud too?

 

The people are abused. and they've always been abused. 

 

And they where here long before whining assholes like you came along to complain about. them.

 

 

You live in Anahiem with them for a reason. You are no netter than them. You just think you are, and that's one of the things that makes you an asshole. 

 

The asshole thing is probably why the guy flipped you off. You're an asshole, and that is the internationally accepted sign language for letting someone  know you've realized it.

 

BTW, if you were to live in Irvine, you would whine about the Iranians. Because that's what racist like you do.

 

BTW, I'm white bitch.

 @metalmot I highly doubt you know that area in Anaheim; There are truth to her statements. There are some people in this area that I have run into that would light the world on fire just to watch it burn, and then these gang-banging hooligans will hide behind there mothers the first chance they get when authority comes knocking. Most of the time the cops drive off giving them a warning out of pity for the mother, not knowing half the fucked up shit that individual does. I have seen this most of my life living in this area. There was a stabbing in that area on July 4th that you probably didn't even know about. 

 

There is a serious issue with gang violence in this area. I have a personal acquaintance that has been shot and crippled gang banging in the area we are talking about, and he still finds ways to actively "stick it to the man," do drugs(I don't mean weed), and live with a disregard for the neighborhood around him. I really think you should get out more, and watch your mouth... you sound like a fool insulting a mother like that, even if you disagree with her. 

 

I am pretty sure that if she did live in Irvine that her biggest complaint would be that she actually leased the land instead of owning it, since the Irvine company never sells the real property. Also, she might not move to Irvine if she were to learn that they actually have a bum bus that goes around picking up transients and drops them off in the slums of Santa Ana without assisting them further than that. 

 

Get a real opinion before deciding to trash talk someone about being racist for sharing their opinion about prejudice they actually have experienced in their life. Your approach to the post above is extremely ignorant, because you fail to see that her story is actually what you despise. All you read was Latino and you jumped the gun. 

 

BTW I am white and latino... but I don't see why it matters.
