An exasperated man carrying a large blade confronted participants of a ‘street takeover’ this week amid a breakdown of law and order in Southern California, according to reports.
The incident unfolded in the early hours of Thursday morning in Anaheim, a major city in Orange County.
Hoodlums and street racers took control of a major intersection and began doing car tricks and ‘burnouts’ to the delight of a cheering, rowdy crowd.
The dangerous and illegal practice has become commonplace in California, as Infowars has previously reported.
One local resident who was apparently fed up with the behavior charged out of his home carrying a weapon while clad only in shorts.
Footage of an ensuing confrontation was including in a local news report.
“Angry resident shows up to street takeover with a machete,” Kevin Dalton, a recent candidate for Board of Supervisors in Los Angeles County, wrote on Twitter.
“If our elected officials and law-enforcement won’t do anything about this dangerous issue, the people will. The results will not be pretty.”
At least four more ‘street takeovers’ were reported across Orange County that night, all involving the same suspects, witnesses say.
“I would urge anyone who is coming out to these things, or is encouraging these things, to rethink what they’re doing,” Anaheim Police Sgt. Shane Carringer told KTLA.
“They’re causing thousands of dollars in damage. They’re needlessly interfering with the lives of people who are just trying to get up and go to work the next morning and don’t want to be subjected to this noise and this sort of behavior.”
Last week, a massive group of suspects involved in a ‘street takeover’ in Los Angeles swarmed a nearby 7-Eleven and embarked on a barbaric looting spree, attacking an employee and leaving a trail of destruction in their wake.
LAPD says 22 street takeovers were prevented during a sweeping crackdown last weekend in which six people were arrested and 43 vehicles impounded.
