What's already been four days of street protests in Anaheim, the like of which the county hasn't seen since the 1960s (when black and brown united to beat up cops in SanTana), is just about to turn a whole lot more interesting.

Last night, Anonymous declared their interest in what's going in the city following the shooting deaths by police of via video...and they're not happy.

Roll the tape!

Let's see what happens...

Check the YouTube author, this isn't anonymous at all. That guy is probably going to get hacked.

I guess I can't be too surprised that anarchists and gangbangers are cut from the same cloth. Tearing down society instead of contributing, complaining of consequences to their own violence and thuggery. Anonymous is hypocritical, ignorant, and an embarrassment to those with legitimate issues not involving gangbanger scum.

Just lost all respect for Anonymous.  They're butting in where they don't belong.

They should go wear their cool masks at the neighborhood where he was shot.  LIke Friday night....between 10pm and 2am.  Maybe stop by Minnie St. in Santana too....

This is so ridiculous. They were both notorious gang members and felons. And one of them shot at police.

@ mike. The war is coming. It is inevitable. I only hope the mitlitaries of the world (mostly made of poor citizens) do the right thing and refuse to fire in their own people.

You see.. the thing about Anonymous is that it could be some kid just bluffing or a group of legit hackers. I don't pay attention to these videos untill something has happened.

Is it ironic that non-citizens have a "right" to protest? Seriously, when does a community protest the killings of two known gang members?! Ask for papers first and then let them protest.Anaheim is a safer place now thanks to Anaheim PD not wasting anymore tax dollars on these clowns!(and blame the two homies parent(s) for raising & allowing them to join the gangs, only to eventually wind up in jail, or to get shot......not the cops.)

What a joke!  What are they going to do, hack the Anaheim Ducks web page?

I believe a civil war between the %1 and the rest of us is coming. We grow tired of be " peasants" in a new version of the old monarchy that our forefathers fought and died to free us from. I don't agree with or condone what's going to happen soon but I must say that they have brought it on themselves. It's a shame what America has become... A nazi state where the rich rule and they don't care if we starve and die in the streets.

"Do it for the safety of your families, your homes, and your future generations."  Because entrenched gang culture is definitely better for all of these things.

I'd prefer to have Anaheim be cleaned up by Anaheimers. No ill will toward Anonymous, but we are responsible for our own self-governance. Get mad—calmly. Show up at City Council meetings. Dog the councilmembers wherever they go, but Anaheim for Anaheimers.

hahaha. You knew these guys? What the f*ck do you know about freedom and peace they brought?

Um, cut from the same cloth? gangbangers mark themselves PROUDLY with their identity for all to see through their tattoos and specifics of dress and signs and graffitti, etc. This is why the cops can be driving around and see known gang members so easily.  While I wish they would learn to use firearms properly, they are admirable in their proud statement of this is who I am, here I stand, I can do no other.

 

Anonymous, on the other hand?

 

QED.

Too bad summary execution isn't the penalty for all felonies, eh?

 

Including the ones you and yours commit.

Oh, well, if one of them shot at police, then both killings are justified?

 @Enlightened the money from the wrongful death lawsuits will costs the city millions you idiot.  If you want to save taxpayers money, fire some cops.

 @MisterX  "wrongful death"? I seem to think that these two lowlifes made their bed. If it weren't the cops, it would've been a rival gang, or pissed off citizen who was robbed, or had a family member robbed raped or killed.

You 'seem to think?' perhaps you ought to get a grip and check yourself before you post. If you can't even be sure what you are thinking, you have difficulties.Mister X is right, and all your deluded whining won't stop it. In riot cleanup costs, lawsuits from wrongful death, and lawsuits from injured protesters, AND the damage to Anaheim's image that will take YEARS to fix, the cops involved have managed, through their actions, to cost the city of Anaheim many millions of dollars.
