First look at the pictures of what look like soldiers patrolling Iraq lined up to stop the small, 300 person march against police violence in Anaheim.

Anaheim Military Patrolling Peaceful Protest

The pictures above look chillingly like this one taken from a 1994 USFA Fema Document.

Role of Military Civil Unrest

In case you missed it, there's been protests for days in Anaheim after another young man of color was shot and killed by the police.

Hundreds decrying police violence march in Anaheim

Who the heck are these guys?  Police, really?  If so, why the military gear?  If not, are they private contractors?  That's allowed now, btw.  

Read the warning I posted December 5th, 2011

 SCARY: Department of Defense DIRECTIVE NUMBER 3025.18 December 29, 2010

If I have interpreted the DoD Directive correctly, Private contractors like Blackwater (Xe) and Dycorp, both now owned by Private Equity firms, or any of the thousands now working for the DoD could be used to corral us.
So, who are these guys in the photos?  Police, military, or mercenaries?  Who's paying them?  Disneyland or Anaheim?

Anaheim needs to know.

This video of police shooting rubber bullets into crowd of women and children as well as unleashing a dog that attacked a women holding her baby was uploaded on July 22, 2012

We must be vigilent.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
