USA: police goes on racist rampage near Los Angeles

In an episode reminiscent of the 1992 Los Angeles uprising, police in LA suburb Orange County has shot down a man, Manuel Díaz, who allegedly run away from them. This is just one of the many extra-judicial killings that US police forces do every year, mostly with a racist element to them. 

According to his niece, Daisy González, Mr. Díaz did not like cops because all they do is arrest and harass people.

A witness declared that the police shot Mr. Díaz in the back, twice:

Crystal Ventura, a 17-year-old who lives in the neighborhood, said she saw the shooting from about 20 feet away. She said the man had his back to the officer. She said the man was shot in the buttocks area. The man then went down on his knees, and she said he was struck by another bullet in the head. Another officer handcuffed the man who by then was on the ground and not moving, Ventura added.

"They searched his pockets, and there was a hole in his head, and I saw blood on his face," she said. Dunn said he could not comment on these allegations because the shooting is under investigation.
Police reportedly tried to buy any video taken by witnesses on their cellphones.

To make things worse police officers shot rubber bullets and let lose violent dogs against Hispanic families with children, who protested the killing peacefully, as can be seen in this video:

All that just outside Disnelyland.
