While covering the Anaheim protests, Anaheim Police begin firing riot control impact weapons at journalists Tim Pool and Amber Lyon. Neither Tim nor Amber were hurt. During the initial firing shown in the above video, Pool holds up his press credentials, and puts his arms in the air, but apparently neither holds any meaning when dealing with these *cough* "peace keepers."

Take a close listen to all the helicopters flying above, at one point last night there were at least seven. Then hear the sounds of the various "non-lethal" weapons being shot off. It sounds like a war zone.

Amber Lyon was pinned between two trucks at one point, and Tim was fired at multiple times after this video but is unscathed. Aside from being brutal, it seems the Anaheim police are really, really bad shots, thank goodness!

Can you help us out?
