Minutemen Protest (3 of 3)

by 1Planet1People Friday, May. 27, 2005 at 10:26 PM

The Garden Gove Police Department conducted themselves in ways that were expected. They protected the racists, and attacked the people.

This is the continued report (2 of 3).

The police are carrying the big sticks looking for anyone within striking distance.

An Arrest

An Arrest...
43.jpgvttykb.jpg, image/jpeg, 600x400

Out of nowhere, the police charge into the crowd and attack this guy. I happened to capture the entire thing on my video camera and there was no pop cans, no bottles, no objects thrown at all, as the police claim. These cops are as crazy as the Minute Men, but the lie better. (According to the LA Times the Garden Grove Police Lt. David Kivler claimed that when the crazy van driver was leaving, and then the protestors starting throwing filled soda cans at officers). You can look at the light from the photos of the van, the injured people, and they speak for themselves. The GGPD is just a city-endorsed gang!

A protestor objects to the officers placing their batons in the mouth of this innocent victim.

The Racist Camera Guy

The Racist Camera Gu...
45.jpgbcf6zj.jpg, image/jpeg, 600x400

I can't remember who this guy is, but when a Mexican male said something to him (I didn't hear what), he responded by saying, "go back to where you came from". (I did hear that). The Mexican man responded, "back to where", and the camera guy said, "you know where", then the Mexican man said, "no I don't, go back where", and the camera guy said (sarcastically), "home". There was no doubt he was referring to Mexico, he is a racist, and he was in the crowd trying to find anything that would make our side look bad. These people are dangerous and the very reason we need to watch everything we do. When we are innocent, they ignore it, when we aren't it leads the story. I would rather be ignored than painted as a violent person. The fact that he did not air "pop cans thrown at cops" says a lot about their outrageous claims.

If anyone knows who this guy works for, we need to contact his employer and file complaints. He should not be working in the media, and I think we can work to get him removed.

53.jpgi99rty.jpg, image/jpeg, 600x400

It is 9:21, the crowd is leaving, and they are looking for people not in the group to attack. This is probably when they arrested the person in the wheel chair for attacking the police with a weapon (the only thing he had on him was an expensive audio recorder).

9:25 pm - People agree to go to the police department to stand in solidarity with the victims to this abuse of police powers. People are also getting the information from our legal team for the lawsuits that will be following.

10:54 pm - People begin to march and chant together. We knew that in a residental area, they would have to work with us. The good thing is that residents came out to find out what was going on. Once they heard the story, every one of them supported us. It seems like the GGPD is not a popular group in their neighborhood.

The Conclusion

The Conclusion...
60.jpg, image/jpeg, 600x400

1:09 am They set high bails that only one person could post for (ranged from ,000 - ,000) and gave people 60 minutes to come up with the money. There are still several prisoners in jail, but the action worked in the sense that they did agree to work with us. If we had an additional 500 people there, there is no doubt in my mind that all the people would have been released. I think this is something we need to really think about. The people arrested didn't do anything, they were innocent victims in a tactic to disperse the crowd. Considering it could have been any of us, it is important that everyone involved in these demonstrations stand in solidarity with those victims of police harassment. When the people are united, they are never defeated. People began to leave sometime between 2 and 3 am.
