Anaheim, California – Apparent state of emergency?

Apparently Anaheim in California is in a state of emergency. We have supposed reports, photo’s and video’s of army in the streets, police brutality and violation of residents. I have found reports on the situation from the Huffington Post and some video footage from the CNN with no actual reporting. But from what I gather it bares a striking resemblance to England last year.

The report’s and video’s have been coming through in dribs and drabs and even my attempt at googling the situation for any official reports on how it has escalated to military presence on the streets of the ‘Land of the Free’ have brought me nothing other than all the information I need on the Anaheim Salvation Army.
