Anaheim mayor demands federal investigation after cops kill two men in two days
The mayor of Anaheim, California is asking for federal assistance in an investigation of the local police department after law enforcement officers shot and killed two men in separate incidents over the weekend.

Anaheim, California Mayor Tom Tait is looking for answers after two people were gun downed in unrelated officer involved shootings this week, triggering city-wide protests that have targeted area cops for alleged police brutality. With little information being released about the killings, citizens of Anaheim are demanding an investigation.

On Monday, Mayor Tait joined their side and pleaded for assistance from officials outside of the city and the state in hopes of getting to the bottom of any misconduct in the force.

"Like many residents, I am very, very concerned with what occurred in our city on Saturday night," Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait said in a statement. "I am asking the state Attorney General's Office and the federal U.S. Attorney's Office for assistance with a full and independent investigation of the entire situation."

On Saturday afternoon, 35-year-old Manuel Diaz was shot twice from behind and killed by police after leading them on a brief foot chase. Cops later confirmed that Mr. Diaz, an alleged gang member from nearby Santa Ana, CA, was unarmed, but the department has failed to follow through with releasing more information.
