2 Anaheim Protests: 1 Raucous, 1 Silent; 9 Arrested

Eric Carpenter et al., Orange County Register, July 29, 2012

At least nine marchers who took part in unruly protests Sunday against the city’s police department were arrested on the ninth consecutive day of demonstrations by residents and activists furious over two recent police shootings.

Two protestors—Mark Dameron of San Diego and Corbin Sobrita of Escondido—were arrested in front of the Anaheim Police Department’s headquarters on Harbor Boulevard, Anaheim police Sgt. Bob Dunn said, where a crowd of more than 200 was demonstrating Sunday afternoon.

A third protestor, Nathaniel Sierdsma of San Bernardino, was arrested a few blocks away, at Broadway and Clementine Street, Dunn said. All three were arrested on suspicion of resisting arrest, failing to obey an order and being a pedestrian in a roadway.

A fourth protestor, who wasn’t immediately identified, was arrested on suspicion of assault and battery after she apparently wandered away from some marchers and got into a confrontation with an employee and patrons of an Arco gas station at Broadway and Anaheim Boulevard, Dunn said.

Five others whose identities weren’t immediately released were arrested later Sunday, Dunn said. {snip}


The demonstrations unfolded July 21 following the fatal afternoon shooting of unarmed Manuel Angel Diaz, 25, in a residential alleyway on Anna Drive just east of downtown Anaheim. Police said the Santa Ana resident was a known gang member who was attempting to flee from two officers when he was shot.

A day later, Anaheim police fatally shot 21-year-old Joel Acevedo after he fired at officers during a chase, police said.

A memorial for Diaz that featured an outdoor Catholic Mass was held Sunday night in the neighborhood where he was fatally shot.

Earlier Sunday, demonstrators marched from police headquarters in downtown Anaheim to within a half-mile of the pedestrian entrance to the Disneyland Resort on Harbor.

Chanting “Whose streets? Our streets!” the marchers passed police cars emblazoned with the names of cities as far away as Mission Viejo and Dana Point.


The unruly demonstration that originated at noon Sunday outside the Anaheim police station on Harbor encompassed several political-action groups, including protesters who said they were from the groups Anonymous and Mexican Movement. A group of self-identified Communists handed out a newspaper called Red Flag.


As TV news reporters attempted to broadcast live from across the street late Sunday afternoon, demonstrators surrounded them and screamed, “Tell the truth!” Others hurled obscenities at the TV cameras.


The demonstrations took on a party atmosphere at times, with people banging on drums, laughing and exchanging high-fives. {snip}

Demonstrator Eduardo Perez, 21, a student at UCLA, said he came to Anaheim from his Westwood apartment because “he wanted to be part of some history.”

“What’s going on here in Orange County is symbolic of a problem with the system,” Perez said. “This wouldn’t happen to white people. This is racism—simple as that.”


Even as Sunday’s raucous demonstration unfolded outside the city’s police station, a smaller group called “We Are Anaheim, Somos Anaheim” gathered outside City Hall at 11 a.m. Sunday for a two-mile silent march on Anaheim Boulevard.

About 100 people, mostly wearing white in a sign of peace, organized the effort on Facebook after objecting to a near-riot Tuesday that left windows smashed and local businesses looted.


About 100 mourners gathered at 6 p.m. Sunday in an outdoor grass courtyard near the apartment complex where Diaz was fatally shot to remember the man whose death has touched off more than a week of violent protests.

  • These photos were taken from the ceremony that took place TWO  BLOCKS from Disneyland. They appeared in the Orange County Register and are from their site.  At the mass service for the dead gangbanger, the people in the neighborhood put on an Aztec Cleansing Ceremony:




    • Hopefully this will have a HUGE effect on Disneyland and all of the surrounding businesses.  The ONLY way to get some of corporate america on our side is to hit them in the pocket book.  There is a reason that tickets to Disneyland cost more than $100.  I remember a decade ago they had promotions where Southern California residents could get in for around $30-35 with So CAL ID.  It never really dawned on me WHY they discontinued those promotions or WHY tickets to Disneyland are so prohibitively expensive.  I know now though.  These people are third world peasants and instead of adopting their mexican peasant lifestyle (which is impossible living in an urban jungle) they adapt to the mannerisms of the 21st century “american” peasant.  Some of them work as gardeners or maids while many just sit around collecting welfare, popping out babies, watching TV and scowling at every White person they see in public.  It’s HILARIOUS listening to them blaming the schools for their lack of education.  These same schools had no problem educating the White students.  I encourage more of this Mestizo pageantry as it will only serve as more proof that they are not Americans and can never be Americans!

    For the posters here who think that being occupied by Mestizos would be preferable to a Zulu occupation:


    Police said Joel Acevedo was in a party of three driving a stolen SUV. A marked police squad car tried to pull over the SUV, but it crashed, whereupon the occupants fled. Acevedo, who was on probation, fired two shots at pursuing officers. They returned fire, killing him.

    Locals, including mothers using children and babies as human shields, tried to sabotage the Diaz crime scene, and provoked and attacked police investigators:

    They pushed a dumpster holding burning trash toward police. Some also threw rocks and bottles at officers, who responded by firing pepper spray and rubber bullets.

  • “What’s going on here in Orange County is symbolic of a problem with the system,” Perez said. “

    Exactly! This is what happens when you do not enforce immigration law, thereby allowing your country to be overrun by militant, ignorant Mexicans with a sense of entitlement and bravado which is second to none

    I have some more news from Orange County. An Asian jewelry store in Westminster, CA was just attacked by some armed robbers. The Asian owner bravely shot one dead and critically injured the second one. The third perp escaped and is at large. And guess what, THE LIBERAL MEDIA WILL NOT DESCRIBE THE ASSAILANTS. NO DESCRIPTION, NO RACE, NOTHING. 


    Someone from that area told me what the race of the perps were, but I have to investigate it further to include that.

    Aren’t the Mexicans who we’ve allowed to migrate here just wonderful!? This is what happens when Whites allow Mexicans (not just Blacks) to stream into their communities without protest, without opposition, without turning a cold shoulder to them. At first, a few of them arrive. They are generally quiet, ‘hard-working’ and ‘family oriented’ (so to speak). But when their numbers increase and they start getting comfortable, they get loud and begin to demand things. When one of their own justifiably gets shot by the police, they start to fight and destroy property.

    Let this be a lesson to other parts of our country. As soon as the Mexicans, Salvadorians or whatever reach their communities, it’s only a matter of time before things start looking like Anaheim, East L.A., Boyle Heights – unless Whites band together and somehow oppose it.

    Sadly, Whites have been too mild-mannered and timid in the face of what is an obvious Mexican invasion of their country and communities! We should have protested loudly at the very start of this; we should have made it evident to these people that we don’t like them and don’t want them here; we should have refused to give them jobs, do our gardening and anything else! We should not have allowed ourselves to be intimidated by White liberals and especially of being labeled ‘Racist.’ Good grief, the fear of what others might think has virtually destroyed us!

      I live in California and I mow my own lawn! I don’t hire Mexicans to do ANYTHING!

  • ncpride

    Yes, and according to one of them, ‘America’ is a spanish name, and Spaniards are mexicans. Since they were here first, WE should get the F-bomb out. Just a sample of the comments on the orginal article. I’m sure they learned all that nonsense in school, where they get their FREE education, while they are here illegally.

    I love that police dog getting loose.  Back before the place turned queer, the Miami Beach Police Department had several patrol cars with dogs in the back.  When pulling up to a disturbance,  the officer would hit the back door release button BEFORE he opened his door.  Of course, MB also used to have a sign on MacArthur Causeway ordering coloreds to be off the island before dark.  Ahh . . . the GREAT old days.

    I think this thing in Anaheim is very reminiscent of 1960s Oakland.  There, the negroes no longer wanted white cops in their ‘hoods.   I think that we’re going to see more ethnic po-lice patrols in the future.  Indians already do that on their reservation and since California is becoming one big Tamale Republic, it just makes sense to me to let Jose police up Raoul.

    Of course, after their own po-lice proves to be even more bestial than the ctizens they’re supposed to “serve and protect” the coloreds will squeal for YT to come back.

    To Darryl and Buffcreek1967. I am a 68 year old Vietnam Veteran and when I came back from Vietnam in the 1960s I found out that my Grandfather who had passed away while I was over seas. One of the things that he left to me all of his old National Geographic Magazines. These magazines went all the way back to the 1920s and had many photos of America and American life back in the 20s and 30s. You wouldn’t believe how beautiful the big cities like New York, Chicago and Los Angeles were back then. I remember pictures of places like Coney Island and Miami Beach with NO minorities, the crowds were all white, and everything looked neat, clean and well cared for. I am more convinced than ever that we are headed for the same fate as the old Soviet Union, and will eventually break apart into three or more seperate nations. Although we would no longer be a great world power, I believe the quality of life for the average citizen in the all white, or predominantly white areas, would improve dramatically.

      Thank you, and good point!

      Why the hell should the Mexicans get California? We should at least struggle for California north of LA County. California is a natural treasure. It’s ours to protect.

    As soon as our schools stop with the “Hate Whitey Curriculum” this type of behavior will stop. We have been set up by anti-America types who hate their own skin color.They are the worst traitors this nation has ever faced. I’m usually not one for book burning, but I will make an exception in this case.

    • NM156

      No “hate whitey” curriculum in Chicago 3-4 decades ago, when the Latin Kings ran the streets. They still do in many wards. NO MORE IMMIGRATION.

  • The__Bobster

    The whole La Raza crap isn’t taught in Mexico, it’s taught here.

    And you would be wrong.  A bunch of Mexican schoolbooks were once donated to an Arizona school district.  The geography ones discussed the retaking of Aztlan thoroughly and included a map of “Mexico”.

  • The scumbag in the WH said,when he amnestied these savages,they are going to “contribute!” ,as the commie sloganerring goes,and then he  huffily walked off. The jackass.Lousy dirtbag piece of excrement. Here is their “contribution”. They are really helping us  “compete with China”,as the other Dreamer slogan says. Their “love” for America is shining through!!

  • NM156

    This would never happen to white people because white people aren’t gang bangers in measurable numbers. Hispanics need to go back to Mexico, where they belong. It’s a dumb cliche, but it really gets under their skin no matter how many times it’s repeated. No one wants to be told that they are unwanted, unwelcome, alien foreigners.

      Even the poorest whites have better class than even the middle class black or hispanics does.

      Which one? There are so many…oh, I see the link. Thanks.

    I believe it’s time for a taxpayer revolt…it has been for awhile. We may be becoming a minority in our own country, but we pay most of the taxes. If we shut off the gravy train, they have nothing. That is how we should wield power, now and in the future. 

  • Anonymous

    Exactly.  When people feel sorry for blacks and hispanics I point out to them that everywhere they are the majority–every neighborhood, every city, every country, etc–that this is how they act and what they will do to others when they are in power.

  • Hirene

    I hope San Francisco looks like this in twenty years.
