Police Raid Max, Guns Drawn

At approximately 3:30pm Sunday Nov 23rd 2008 5 police officers came storming down the Hollywood Max stop with guns drawn. One police officer with what appears to be a modified shotgun possibly designed to shoot rubber bullets or gas canisters. two other officers had pistols drawn with a final gun toting officer holding an AK-47 while the last officer did not appear to have any weapons in hand and appeared to be there as backup support only.

So, in the middle of the day, in Portland Oregon the police come onto the max, with guns including an AK 47 drawn and yell for everyone to clear out of the max, this leads to a rush of people flying off the max about to trample each other, mothers with children, elderly, men, women, all fleeing from the Police.
