Anaheim police fired multiple rounds of rubber bullets into a crowd of citizens, then sicced a dog on a mother and her child before attempting to collect the video evidence shot by bystanders.

However, instead of confiscating the footage as cops are notorious for doing, they attempted to buy the footage.

The citizens apparently refused because at least one video made on KCAL-TV as you can see in the above video.

The citizens were protesting against an earlier officer-involved shooting that left one man dead.

An Associated Press report cites the footage as shot by KCAL but the video itself is stamped with the words “amatuer video.”

Police said they fired rubber bullets because some people in the crowd started throwing bottles.

They also said the dog was “deployed accidentally.” 

UPDATE: Anaheim police kill a second man in two days, then try to prevent citizens from recording investigation.
