Tensions between Latino residents and police are still on the rise in Anaheim. Today, Latino political advocacy group Presente.org is calling for a state investigation of the Anaheim Police. This demand comes as the city has already asked the Office of Independent Review from Los Angeles and the FBI to review six officer-involved shootings, including two fatal shootings a week ago.
Nine people were arrested yesterday as protesters banged drums and drew with chalk on the pavement at the Anaheim Police Station on Harbor Boulevard. Protests began on July 21st after Anaheim police officers shot and killed an apparently unarmed 25-year-old Latino man who police say was a suspected gang member.
