Video: Protesters Storm Anaheim Police HQ

VIDEO: Melee After OIS In Calif.

Demonstrators filled the lobby of the Anaheim (Calif.) Police Department on Sunday, chanting and carrying anti-police signs to protest several officer-involved shootings.

The melee capped two days of protests and two officer-involved shootings involving suspects officers said were gang members.

In Saturday's incident, two officers chased Manuel Diaz, 25, and observed him throwing unidentified objects onto rooftops as he ran. Although just one of the two officers shot at Diaz, both were put on paid administrative leave, reports the Orange County Register.

The fatal shooting of Diaz, described by the department as a "known gang member," brought a melee at the crime scene that included men rolling flaming dumpsters into the middle of the street and officers firing less-lethal rounds into the crowd. A police K-9 dog escaped his handler and nearly bit an infant, reports KCAL.

On Sunday, a gang officer shot and killed a gunman who opened fire on them during a foot pursuit.

They should have arrested those that entered the lobby of the Police Station who were protesting. This is Obstruction of Justice at the very least and not a legal protest. I am a bit tired of the criminals who are doing nothing but committing crimes behind the cloak of being PC and legitimate protests.

Thank you Anaheim police for taking another gangbanger off the streets for good. The citizens should be thanking the police for making the streets safer. They are out there with children and babies just to use them as shields so they can throw objects at the cops. What they should of done is round up the protestors and check the legal status of all of them and deport the ones that are here illegally.
