Video: 'Anonymous' targets Anaheim police

In a YouTube video, the group said authorities there had shot protesters — it did not mention that the munitions were bean bags

Los Angeles Times

ANAHEIM, Calif. — As Anaheim became a protest battleground and police officers and protesters clashed for the fourth day in a row, the group Anonymous took to the Web to declare it was embarking on "Operation Anaheim."

In a YouTube video, the group said authorities there had shot protesters — it did not mention that the munitions were pepper balls and bean bags. The video features the mask from the movie "V for Vendetta," which has featured prominently in Occupy protests, and an ominous voice calling for the "citizens of United States to rise up in unison."

Responding to the threat, Anaheim Police Sgt. Bob Dunn said, "It concerns me that people would be coming to the city of Anaheim to protest something that they don’t have a vested interest in. We want to have a relationship with our community."
