Police Brutality California: It Takes 9 Stockton Officers To Arrest 1 Teen For Jaywalking [VIDEO]

Police Brutality California: It Takes 9 Stockton Officers To Arrest 1 Teen For Jaywalking [VIDEO]



A jaywalking arrest attempt by police in the California city of Stockton escalated to the use of force on a black teenager. Video posted Wednesday to YouTube shows a Stockton police officer hitting the teen several times with his baton before several other officers get involved.

Witnesses told a Russia Today reporter that the unidentified cop was telling the teenager to sit down -- possibly to write him a ticket for improperly crossing the street to catch a city bus. But when the teenager continued walking to his bus, the officer grabbed him and took out his baton.

The footage begins with the officer restraining the young man and then starting to beat the teenager with a baton. “It’s a [expletive] kid!” a woman watching the encounter shouted to the officer, as a group of onlookers gathered. “Get off him! He’s been jaywalking! Leave him alone, he didn’t do anything wrong!”
