Anaheim PD's Confidential Action Plan for July 29 Protests: Have Undercover Cops, Feed Tired Officers with Fancy Food, and Let the City Burn
|Hey, I can see protesters from up here!|
Like the good Boy Scouts they are, Anaheim cops were über-prepared two weeks ago when protesters, angered by the officer-involved shooting deaths of Manuel Diaz and Joel Acevedo, announced they would demand justice on July 29 in front of police headquarters. Judging by the 43-page "Anaheim Incident Action Plan" obtained by the Weekly, which outlined a massive multi-agency response, the city's finest were anticipating the assassination of Mickey Mouse himself.
*Anaheim PD, one of the few agencies in the county equipped with its own helicopters, called on additional air power from the Orange County Sheriff's Department, California Highway Patrol and Huntington Beach. With 19 operators and 10 choppers listed, we can't imagine that came cheap.
*There were at six undercovers in plain clothes that day "deployed to identify and isolate individuals engaged in unlawful behavior or conduct."
