    David Harris Jr. posted this video on YouTube this morning. He said that it happened a few miles from his home in northern California, but didn't give any other details. He probably just overreacted and there is nothing to see here; just move along:

    If the kid does not want to be treated like a thug he shouldn't act like a thug.

    (In the interests of full disclosure:)

    Do you have any details? Harris didn't give any and I could not find any.

    It is always difficult to arrest someone who is fighting. It looks bad, always. Without knowing the circumstances surrounding the arrest it is impossible to decide what was appropriate or what might be excessive.

    Try this on for size. The kids were conducting a "sit in" protest at their school. The place they decided to sit blocked the posted emergency exit. They were asked to move for their safety and the safety of all persons in the building. They refused. When the police tried to move them the young man resisted physically and the police took measures to affect a lawful arrest.

    So, again I say, "If the kid does not want to be treated like a thug he shouldn't act like a thug."

    Thanks! That was sloppy work by Harris and I think that he took the video down. He usually is error free.

    This was in Shasta County in Cottonwood at a party of young adults and underage teenagers numbering about 100. The party became a neighborhood disturbance. It happened Saturday. There is a lot of cell phone video. The sheriff is investigating.
