It took a whole passel o' Stockton's finest to baton-whip and body slam a 16-year-old black kid into submission after he was allegedly spotted jaywalking.
From the YouTube video description: "The kid got stopped for 'jaywalking' when he barely got out of the bus. He was 2 feet away from the sidewalk when the cop stopped him for jaywalking. The cop was telling him to take a seat but the teen kept walking to his bus but the cop kept grabbing his arm & the kid took off the cop's hand off his arm so the cop took out his baton, that's when all this happened."
Naturally, it's all the boy's fault for being so scared out of his wits by the insanely aggressive cops yelling and hitting him that he tried to defend himself. Stockton Police Department Joe Silva said: "If everyone would just learn to comply with the lawful orders from police officers and not try to hold or grab any of our weapons force would never have to be used."
The boy was charged with trespassing and resisting arrest, Silva told NBC Los Angeles.
