Footage uploaded from Stockton, California, shows nine police officers tackling and arresting a 16-year-old boy accused of jaywalking in the bus lane.
The clip, captured by a bystander on his cell phone camera, begins after a police officer has begun a forceful interaction with the teen, using his baton to press the boy's legs into his chest and strike him in the head.
Toward the end of the video, a bystander who has been advocating for the teen throughout the clip pauses her protests for a moment to ask, "All this for a kid?" She adds, "That's a baby. He didn't even do nothing. He didn't do nothing wrong."
Lesson to be learnt: comply. If an officer asks you to move, move.

This is how the cops roll now - 1 for the arrest - 8 to surround the "incident" to protect the police from social media.
Being a black fella is dangerous these days - especially if you have brains (interpretation: "attitude") - you're simply a dangerous mofo.
