A 20-year-old Venice skateboarder and his family are accusing Los Angeles police of using unnecessary force after a video shows him pinned to the ground and an officer punching him in the face.

The incident unfolded Saturday afternoon when college student Ronald Weekley Jr. was riding his skateboard in the street when officers sought to detain him, police said.

Raw footage of excessive force




A video provided to KTLA shows Weekley on the ground with four officers on top of him. One officer is seen punching Weekley in the head.


Why would they punch him in the head when he is on the ground and handcuffed? So many cops are sadistic and control freaks. There were like 5 guys on top of him, he couldn't even move.

You answered your own question. Why punch a handcuffed person? Because they are sadistic and control freaks.

They are trained to do what they do, I believe that training leads to excesses.

It is sad, but look for more of this to come. Who will stop them?

S&F.

That will teach him. Sometimes kid's just need a good thumping to learn some respect.

The ones who want power should never be the ones who have any.

Cops are power hungry individuals. If you want to be a hero, be a doctor, a fireman, EMT, not a cop.

Cops are not heroes, they are egotistical psychos with authority over all.

This is shocking,i remember the days when i used to skateboard we used to ride past police & they used to just tell you to stay off the roads & stay safe.
surley the police wouldn't just jump the lad,he must have done something to get the police to do this.

what a sad world we live in

Having only become an adult recently, I can honestly say that being a teenager is reason enough to get hassled. I've had been frisked, detained, put in cuffs, all for being white in a black neighborhood, where my work was.

God forbid I was smoking a cigarette in front of a cop, he would ask me for my ID and take my pack whether or not I had it. Some cops are just pigs and teenagers are easy victims. Most of us don't know better and are easy to harass.

You read about things like this happening all time,not just in the US but the UK as well,when i was younger i never had any hassle from anybody like they do these days,i know times change but where is the freedom grow up & learn by your own mistakes ?
i wouldn't say i caused trouble but got into a few scrapes,the police would give you a stern lecture & off you went,you learnt not to do it again.

i fear things will only get worse,i know thats a negative thought but sadly thats how i feel.

Notice how they (the pigs) slowly step towards the crowd to push it back waiting for someone to stand their ground?

I wonder if they tried that in Florida if you could use the " stand your ground" defense?

It gets much worse, today you lack the freedom to get into a quick fight and end the problem. Now it ends up getting dragged out and instigated because there is no allowable release of anger. Instead of a quick fight in the street and a handshake afterwards, its a 5vs1 alleyway beatdown and possibly a stabbing/shooting. Teenagers are hormonal little freaks that need constant stimulus and release (let's be honest, teenagers love their call of duty and porn). A fight is bound to happen, so let it. Cops are so worried about a small scrap, they don't seem to realize that just because they stopped this one fight, it won't turn into a major issue later, probably involving more parties.

I currently live in a city , where parks are closed at 5pm and benches are being removed from public areas due to "gang presence". Kids/teenagers have nowhere to go. We are now the WORLD leaders in prescription pill abuse. I got into a car accident where i ripped a shoulder muscle and wasn't allowed painkillers because "people my age have a high risk of abuse". thanks for the advil...

Cops are so worried about teenagers that they are forced to find alternate ways to have fun..Sex Drugs Alcohol.

At 15 kids are drinking here. 16 is cigarettes and marijuana, 17-18 everything else. Cops keep kids off the streets and on drugs, just my very honest opinion.

Hi there.

I know a cop who volunteers as an ambo and a firey when he's not out beating up kids.

I mean being a cop.

What does that make him?

That makes him one of the good ones. I know they are out there, but like I mentioned above, the standard seems to have highly shifted to the not so good ones being the norm.

I obviously know not all cops are monsters, but when you see stuff like this happening a lot more often then cops acting rationally, it's a hard stigma to get away from.

Am I. Really the last parent on earth that would follow these [snip] home and beat them senseless with a bat? How does one allow this to happen to their child and not go get personal justice? The police are just as likely to beat up the innocent as the guilty in some of these cities, I don't know how anyone livves this way.

Got that right!

Punks, all of them. Should have been properly disciplined in the first place but the parents of these punks are often drug addicts themselves.

again, on average, police NATIONWIDE are the same people that were socially awkward, rejected, and outright weak as children and young adults.

I know many police officers personally, (at least 14 within the same county/city departments) and they all fit the description i've just laid out. I'm sure there are a few exceptions. VERY few.

Being a police officer for these guys is an excuse. "FINALLY, i've got the upper hand. I'll show those football players and skateboarders who is boss now". "FINALLY, i can get a date. I'll hide behind this uniform under the guise of 'hero', and she'll never know the real me".

Well, i remember the real you. The pathetic you. I'm surprised you can wear that much steel on your hip without being pulled to the sidewalk.

It isn't that they're not 'good'. It's that they've been waiting their WHOLE LIFE for this moment. The moment when they get to be the strong one. Where they get to be the boss. Most of them grew up hiding in corners and having lunch trays tipped into their lap.

When a man has spent his WHOLE adolescent life wishing that he had the upper hand, PRAYING for some kind of courage and respect, he dosn't know how to handle it once he's been given it.

It's a BRAND NEW feeling for most of these young cops.

I am sure impressed by people like you. Just for skateboarding a kid should have the crap beaten out of them? I will laugh when I hear of a police officer getting the same treatment in return. All they want to become are power hungry maggots and deserve to be shot on site by regular citizens with guns. It's time to pull you heads out of you're butts people and start fighting back.
