    A twelve yr old girl slammed, pregnant woman and others maced by officers after alleged altercation over one child having shorts on at pool instead of swimming trunks - then the story on the news presents it as "multiple officers injured." ???!!!

    But police brutality isn’t the impression the video gives. As the Journal-News puts it:

    In the footage, where loud screams are heard throughout, an officer is seen pulling a young girl away from the crowd with his arm around her neck and arm as he puts her against a vehicle and pulls her arms behind her back. The girl screams throughout before finally saying, “Ok, Ok.” Another male officer is seen using pepper spray on a young girl who is clinging desperately to an iron gate as a female officer grabs her around the neck in an attempt to dislodge her. The officer can be heard shouting, “Just let go of the gate…Get off the gate.”

    As a caller to 911 put it, according to the Journal-News:

    “They’re videotaping, trying to make it look like a racist thing, and it’s not at all. They were breaking our policies. We told them they couldn’t be here anymore, and it’s really scary and I don’t feel safe.”


    Apparently no EMTs reported anyone complaining about a jaw injury, and the teens who were treated at local hospitals didn’t have any broken ribs either.

    I’m not a genius, but I’m almost certain someone here is being a little less than honest.

    It seems from the 911 call that these kids were violating pool policy and were refusing to leave, therefore they were there illegally.

    Kids these days don’t seem to understand that breaking the law comes with consequences, and not listening to police typically doesn’t end well either. Perhaps if they would’ve done what they were told, the situation could’ve been avoided.

    It has gotten to the point that it appears people are doing what they can to provoke these situations just to get cops on video.

    Rev, the website you linked cut the video. The start of it shows how and why it escalated to that point and why they were screaming.

    All this over some swimming trunks. SMH.

    Just another reason why the police have such a bad reputation. Completely unnecessary.

    Want the REAL deal? http://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/l...-After-CHP-Threw-Her-to-Ground-187564701.html Notice what color the woman was and the color of the cops.
