LAPD Caught On Film Beating Up Teenager For Skateboarding On The Wrong Side Of The Street

Neighbors used cell phones to film four LAPD officers brutally beating an African American college student who was handcuffed and lying on the ground, resulting in a concussion and broken facial bones. Ronald Weekley Jr. had been skateboarding in front of his family’s house, and a friend says that Weekley initially did not stop because he believed the officers were addressing a group of men standing nearby. He is now behind bars for resisting arrest, with the obvious question being, why would an arrest ever be made in the instance of someone skating in front of his or her home?

    that was sick.

  2. Aren’t LA cops known for being just absolute fucking scumbags? Or am I wrong about that…

    It’s going to be interesting to see what happens to people like these when society implodes.

    How many times must this happen before good honest citizens start killing these assholes?
    Over and over and fucking over again, this goes on and nothing changes!
    Soon the Police Fascists will feel the wrath of vigilante justice, swift and merciless.

      Personally I can not wait to see video(s) of abusive cops being caught in the act and wrestled or manhandled and taken under arrest by actual good citizens nearby. Why does this never happen? Aren’t most people aware of the ratio of non-police to police officers? The abusive and out-of-control cops (government-paid thugs with badges and guns) should be wrestled to the ground themselves (and perhaps sometimes a beating will be in order) and handcuffed. After that, I don’t know what would happen. But it NEEDS to happen. Of course, in the Amerikan Fascist Police State we are moving further into the consequences of such actions might not be hard to predict, but if The People stand up and refuse to take this shit anymore, we can turn the tables on these cunts.

      • there are lot of good reasons to not challenge the pigs in the streets:
        they have guns, they’re trained in violence and are better organized
        there is no legal support for violence against the pigs
        most people are well trained in fearing pigs
        to name few

        but there are better, non-violent ways to resist totalitarianism
        like dropping out of their system
        or refusing to work for corporate elites
        but most ‘Merkins are so psyoped, that they haven’t got a chance

         I love this idea.

    • that’s already happening, but the pigs have better weapons & are better organized

      but violence isn’t the answer

    I guess these KKKops just miss the good ol’ days, like in 1992 when we BURNT the whole place to the ground. Seems like these stupid pigs just want us to do it all over again.

    White, L.A. cops beating up a black guy: remind you of anyone in particular?

    If he would have robbed a bank this behaviour by the LAPD would be expected, but come on for skating on the wrong side of the road. Get these LAPD people on a anger management course please.

      I am aware of a court mandated anger management class in my state that consists of a police office demonstrating to the attendees how a leaded baton feels when applied to joints and pressure points.  This is done in a very controlled manner while the officer explains the lack of control that will occur the next time the subjects are unable to ‘manage’ their anger.  

  8. Did they illegalize tasers?
    Cops used to Tazer everybody…now they just beat the crap out of em. 

  9. Apathesis | Aug 21, 2012 at 7:23 pm |

    Everyday they make it easier for me to hate them.  What a bunch of cunts.

    Guess there’s no real crime in LA.

  11. I am from Ohio.Growing up ,I would hear about police brutality ,I never believed it really existed.
    That all changed when graduated from college and moved to L.A.
