The fatal police shooting of an unarmed, fleeing suspect in Anaheim is drawing scrutiny from at least three different agencies as city officials seek to quell the outcry from local residents. But these investigations address only part of the problem that four days of sporadically violent protests have brought to light. There is something fundamentally wrong in the relationship between the Anaheim police and the city's growing Latino community. It's time not just for investigations but for soul-searching.
The unrest started Saturday afternoon after police fatally wounded Manuel Angel Diaz, 25, who was shot after running away from a group of approaching officers.
