Preparing for what is expected to be another night of protests and civil unrest, Anaheim Police have begun to assemble in an employee parking lot at the Disneyland Resort. The police have been joined by Orange County Sheriff’s department. Over 100 law enforcement officers have been reported with riot gear.
UPDATE: OC Sheriffs showed up as well in Riot gear. This is probably one of the few updates I’ll be able to give so please please be safe. Over 100 police personnel set up and more coming. Off Clementine and Disney Way
