Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

First look at the pictures of what look like soldiers patrolling Iraq lined up to stop the small, 300 person march against police violence in Anaheim.

Anaheim Military Patrolling Peaceful Protest

The pictures above look chillingly like this one taken from a 1994 USFA Fema Document.

Role of Military Civil Unrest

In case you missed it, there's been protests for days in Anaheim after another young man of color was shot and killed by the police.

Hundreds decrying police violence march in Anaheim

Who the heck are these guys?  Police, really?  If so, why the military gear?  If not, are they private contractors?  That's allowed now, btw.  

Read the warning I posted December 5th, 2011

 SCARY: Department of Defense DIRECTIVE NUMBER 3025.18 December 29, 2010

If I have interpreted the DoD Directive correctly, Private contractors like Blackwater (Xe) and Dycorp, both now owned by Private Equity firms, or any of the thousands now working for the DoD could be used to corral us.
So, who are these guys in the photos?  Police, military, or mercenaries?  Who's paying them?  Disneyland or Anaheim?

Anaheim needs to know.

This video of police shooting rubber bullets into crowd of women and children as well as unleashing a dog that attacked a women holding her baby was uploaded on July 22, 2012
