:54 a.m. PDT, July 25, 2012
ANAHEIM, Calif. (KTLA) -- At
least 24 people were arrested and six people were injured in violent
clashes between Anaheim protesters and police on Tuesday night.
It was the fourth day of demonstrations sparked by a series of officer-involved shootings.
The Anaheim City Council was set
Tuesday afternoon to discuss the fatal police shootings of two men over
the weekend when the unruly crowd led members to delay the meeting.
Shortly after, the crowd took to the streets, where protesters
blocked off Anaheim Boulevard and taunted police officers.
"The crowd began to grow in numbers. They marched from City Hall over
here to the police station, they marched back," Anaheim police Officer
Bob Dunn said.
"We received a report that someone in the crowd might be armed," Dunn said, adding that police began watching that individual.
"When we attempted to contact that person is really when the crowd became more violent," he said.
Angry protesters were seen shouting and spitting at officers as well as throwing items and threatening physical violence.
Some protesters threw rocks and at least one Molotov cocktail was thrown
at a police car, according to Officer Bob Dunn, of the Anaheim Police
Small fires were also reported all over the downtown area, mostly in trash cans, according to Dunn.
Just before 9 p.m., police declared the protest an unlawful assembly,
telling demonstrators that they would be arrested if they did not
"It was after we gave that we started deploying the pepper balls and beanbag shotgun rounds," Dunn said.
Police also fired rubber bullets in some instances, according to Dunn.
In all, 24 protesters were arrested. Three protesters, two reporters and one police officer suffered injuries, officials said.
There was some vandalism including broken windows and lights throughout the downtown area.
Anaheim's police chief on Tuesday decried the unrest and violence on the
streets of the city's downtown, saying his officers had shown "great
restraint" amid angry protests.
Chief John Welter confirmed to The Times that officers had rocks and bottles thrown at them.
"I respect the people's right to demonstrate, but I wish that they weren't demonstrating in a violent manner," Welter said.
He added that some in the crowd did not appear to be residents of Anaheim. "This concerns me greatly," he remarked.

The city of Anaheim or the residents of
Ananheim need to lawyer up and sue Yesenia, a mother of six (mother of 5
now), for every cent her gangbanger of a son was responsible for on
society and the good people of Anaheim while he was alive.

To the Anaheim rioters, and anyone stupid
enough to possibly want to participate is something like this: Answer me
this --- why destroy and damage property? Did the Starbucks tell the
police officers to fire their guns? Did the check cashing place provide
the guns? You want to protest, fine, speak your mind. You want to take
your anger out on those who did nothing to you and businesses who have
nothing to do with the situation? Are you really that moronic? You are
no better than those you are protesting. Those of you who think what
these people did, those who caused damage by vandalism, I really hope
you are sterile because I would hate for you to reproduce and continue
on the stupidity.
