The person who shot the video states that the boy was skateboarding when the officer confronted him. There are no details as to what transpired, but the cop ended up asking the kid to get in the car.
The witness explained the details to FilmingCops:
The child was 13-yrs-old (on the video other witnesses assume he’s “15 or 16″ but according to the source he is in fact 13). He was riding on his skateboard with other young boys behind a shopping center, and there happened to be a patrol car parked nearby.
At some point an officer inside of the patrol car told the 13-yr-old child to “get in the car.”
The child replied, “Why?”
The officer then warned, “You don’t want to get dropped.”
According to witnesses, the officer then attacked the boy, hitting him from behind as the boy was skateboarding. He then got on the boys back and began choking him, according to witnesses. The video shows the choking and the subsequent tasering to the child’s spine.
The boy can be heard in the video writhing in pain as the officer attempts to subdue him.
“Put your fucking hands behind your back!” shouts the officer. To which the child replies, “I can’t.”
The witnesses can be heard telling the officer, “He’s just a kid.”
The officer then loads the beaten and tasered child into his patrol car and begins walking towards the people filming. The video then ends.
Witnesses state that the cop confiscated everyone’s cell phones and deleted video. The video below seems to be the only one to make it out of the horrific scene.
The identities of the boy and the officer are still not known, but we know that this did happen in Fallbrook, California.
