More than 100 protesters rallied in front of Anaheim City Hall before today’s council meeting as a response to the fatal police shootings, which killed two men at separate incidents. During a protest against police brutality on July 21, Anaheim police fired rubber bullets and unleashed a dog on a crowd that included women and children.
Riot police prevented protesters from entering the council chambers during today’s council meeting.
According to KPCC’s Ed Joice, reporting from meeting, the council voted 5-0 in favor of asking the U.S. Attorney’s Office to review the Anaheim police officer involved in shootings which killed the two men.
