Policeman Beating Teenage Skaters

Arkansas police officer forces a young skateboarder to the ground while putting handcuffs on him and yelling. The witnesses are confused and they are saying that he just skated, he didn’t do or say anything, but the police officer won’t listen. When the police officer says to another skater to come to him, the skater takes his skateboard and escapes with the officer running behind him, leaving the first skater on the ground in handcuffs. He then comes back and starts attacking and choking a female skater while her male friend is yelling and saying that she didn’t do anything.

That makes the police officer angry and he makes every single skater around him get on the ground and arrests them. The police officer threatens the teens with words: “I’ll spray you”. Watching the video makes you understand how insane the arrests are.

    At the end it looed like they were keen to just arrest any teenager they could grab. Hey Parents dont you act that way to YOUR teenager and “get away with it”you wont!!! They will and they see it as humane. I would not trust them with a kitten. The parents should bring up charges. The police ALWAYS should act according to law and speak as law not just shoot off at the mouth or arms. They dont care,its a days wage to them.
    If they learned to be human people would be given a reason to respect them.

    One kid said it perfect, “there’s people out there robbing people and doing drugs and you’re worried about kids riding a piece of wood”. I’m not going to draw a conclusion and say the kids didn’t deserve to be arrested or not just from this little clip. But I will conclude that these pigs are losers and really most of them are that isn’t a misconception at all.

    After this arrest they should be able to take down the king pins & pushers of these dangerous boards with wheels. Maybe the kids will narc on the skate board shops after this lesson.
    Another couple of cops that should be proud of keeping our streets clean( FROM SK8 BOARDERS ??)
    C'mon guys bigger problems out there than kids having fun, ~me again~

    police is wrong to have such violent reaction to this .but maybe these guys hate their jobs that’s why they acted so poorly.

    Fatty shouldn’t have laid his hands on that girl, or any of those kids for that matter. low life bastards, do something better with your time and your power trips. I’d laugh and cheer at his funeral while riding around on a piece of wood with wheels.

    Lesson #1: Argue the case in court – not on the street.

  11. Gordon says:

    Knowing skaters myself, they didn’t deserve any of it. If they were skating on private property, they are supposed to be left with a warning, not arrested. Cops and judges abuse their power, I dislike them all.

  12. rash says:

    theyr buttz are bigger than the heads, I never trusted police. I don’t like them, I never did.

  13. gh says:

    Note that the kid holding the video camera completely complied with everything the officer said, and he still threatened him with jail time for resisting arrest. Also, this is pure brutality! Putting minors in CHOKEHOLDS!? He’s a grown man he shouldn’t have to struggle so much against 14 year-olds.

  14. letitbe says:

    U know what, he had to set that tough ton, because they were being snotty little kids and arguing, running from him, and obstructing. If they would have just shut up and sat their butts down, they would not have got into this. When u RUN AND STRUGGLE with a cop detaining u, whether ur 12 or 30, they r gonna give u the business, plain and simple. Little punks, just do what ur told, yeah its stupid, but its against the law. How els do u detain someone thats running from u and resisting? Yeah u man handle them, like they r trained and in fact encouraged to do.

    The best thing the Officer could have done is run over them with his cruiser and swear they fell off their boards in front of him.

  16. sarah says:

    Sorry, between the language and interfereing with the officer they deserved to be arrested. There isn’t anything to sue the officers for. The kids did not comply with his instructions and they

    • Bill says:

      The instructions weren’t warranted. If a cop tells you to do something that doesn’t mean you have to if you’ve done nothing wrong. They were kids being kids in their city. Enjoy spending your life doing what you’re told by anyone in a uniform. You earn respect, it has nothing to do with the outfit you wear

    What did they think was going to happen when they ran from the police… Skater faggs. They deserved what they got..

  18. seinfeld7 says:

    skate bording is not a fucking crime fuck all you haters

  19. truman says:

    No matter what police should never resort to violence. They should be setting an example for the youth of America.

  20. hadrforit says:

    One guy ran, that was silly (even though he had done nothing wrong, so in the bigger picture he had every right to, he was being harassed).

    The guy with the camera, as previously mentioned, was completely civil and complied with everything, yet this donut munching fat fuck threatens him.

    Also, choke hold on a teenage girl? Come on, ths guy is over 200 Lbs, shes barely 50, is it really necessary to resort to that?

    I hope these cops were reprimanded. If anyone has his details, please post.

    to all of you who say they got what they deserved, You obviously were never young in your life, you DONT understand skateboarding in the slightest, and you APPLAUD the idea of kids being beaten for a physical activity. They stole nothing, hurt no one, and caused no harm… The COP however escalated the situation until it was a full on fight simply for his own selfish pride.

    I hope the COP got what he deserved for beating up kids

    ok well for everyone sitting here bad mouthing cops, where are you getting these “facts” from? what do you mean they don’t care about violent crime? i mean sure this is one isolated incident of a cop going ape shit on some kids, but all you guys calling them “fucking pigs” and whatnot, that’s just stupid. cops aren’t like U.S. Marshall’s or FBI agents, they don’t get the intel or anything to go and bust the dangerous criminals. the police are there to protect and act accordingly in their jurisdiction. (except this one) there are detectives and other agencies in charge of going out and busting the druggies and whatnot. get your damn facts straight

  23. stanely says:

    I think the most ridiculus point in this video is when the kid working the camera is made to lay on the ground. He never addressed the officer disrespectfully; he called him ‘sir’ throughout the video. He was simply asking why his friends were being arrested, and he got treated like a criminal. However, I agree with some of the other comments on here, the editing does make this look worse than it may or may not be. In other videos, released later, there is a picture of the fist kid being choked by the officer…. There’s no deneying that proof. A kid mouthing off a cop does not deserve to have that much force used on him. Nobody does. That’s absolutely horrible. Any way you look at it, though, this cop does not deserve to be a law enforcement officer. He is making other responsible and civil officers who are trying to protect the public look like the enemy. But, as a sidenote that isn’t all gloomy and indignant, that kid that ran, holy crap! Did he ever book it! XD

    If a filthy psychopathic pig ever harmed one of my kids, I'd hide out near his house with a sniper rifle.

  26. OmegaWolf747 says:

    I don't understand why cities have such a problem with teenage skaters. Would they rather the teens were defacing property and doing lines? What they don't understand is when they take away skate boarding as an outlet, they encourage the teens to turn to destructive activities as a way to blow off steam.

    I find it hilarious that the only people who hassle skaters, infiltr8ors, or freerunners are fat fucks on a power binge.

  28. Prais 1980 says:

    i think that in my experiences the more people in the group the more the police want to arrest them there have been times where stuff has happened and no board was in my hand and no punishment but when there was the worst available punishment was given i was stopped by a cop at 11 one time while being 50 yards away from my house and b/c there was a board in my hand and 2 other friends we had to have a guardian take us home and the next night 3 kids were walking younger than us at 12:15 and cops strolled right by them

    THE COPS ARE JUST NOT FAIR. THEY DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT FAIR AND THEY DON'T CARE THEY JUST WANT TO BE IN HE SPOT LIGHT CARRYING A GUN TO DO INJUSTICE. AND TREATING EVERYBODY THEY WANT TO LIKE SHIT. I want you cops to know, we are not impressed by that not at all. We are frighten of the so called protectors. You all are a criminals in the public eye.

    This is why I hate cops.

    Look, folks, substitute the word BULLY for PIG. That is what these Pieces of Shite are, so let’s start a movement to expose that fact. If we call them PIGS, it justifies them in some perverse way. Also, there are laws on the books against “Assault under Color of Authority” and YOU can make a Private Person’s Arrest for it. Make damned sure of your evidence (video and Audio, including Witnesses).
    Look up the law, including the bullies RESISTING. We really need to use their tactics against them.
    If another Officer refuses to take them into custody, they can be charged also. BUT- be ready for a battle.

  34. Mug Shots says:

    An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment. There’s no doubt that that you should publish more on this issue, it might not be a taboo subject but usually folks don’t talk about such topics. To the next! Cheers!!

  35. curious says:

    so those lard asses are the one that protect and serve, wonder why they are called pigs, hey dude lay off the donuts. they should require a physical readyness test for all police, no wonder why that officer has explosive disorder, he needs a mental evaluation and a diet,
