Let the riots begin.

Luckily here in AR, we have lots of people like me with Title 2 firearms that would not put up with a riot beyond the first 100-round belt of .30-6 spg 4+1 ball/tracer ammo. :)

07-29) 14:31 PDT LOS ANGELES (AP) --

A judge declared a hung jury Tuesday in the police brutality case against a white former officer who punched and slammed a handcuffed black teenager onto a squad car during a videotaped arrest.

The jury deliberated more than three days without reaching a verdict in a case that raised racial tensions and drew comparisons to the Rodney King beating.

I don't think the cop can be convicted, and I didn't think so a year ago. And I don't think he should be.

This is the cop whacking the black kid's head on the car hood, right? I read in the paper the other day how Inglewatts has mobilized hundreds of "peace monitors" for just this instance.

Hope it's not expected to be a hot-weather night there!

Won't matter if he isn't convicted by a jury of his peers, as ticked off as the black community is about this stuff, he'll end up getting capped somewhere in the neighborhood while on duty.

(07-29) 14:34 PDT (AP) --

LOS ANGELES: same penalty.
Darvish and his attorney banged their fists on the counsel table and breathed "Yes" as the verdicts were read.

Someone in the courtroom yelled, "No justice here!" and was silenced by Superior Court Judge William Hollingsworth Jr.

People standing outside the courthouse held signs saying "Peace After the Verdict," hoping to pevent riots like the ones that devastated the city after four white police officers were acquitted of state charges in the videotaped beating of black motorist Rodney King in 1992.

Morse was white and the teen, Donovan Jackson, is black.

I heard on the radio earlier that a black leader was calling for everyone to not engage in destructive behavior.

I think the officer was way out of line. I never heard the reason for grabbing this minor, who was coming out of a store, because his dad had expired license plates.

67 degrees low forecast for Inglewood tonight. FYI. I don't think anything is going to happen this time. If they acquitted the cop for the beating, and hung on the other guy, maybe. The DA will calm everybody down and say they are going to retry him. The will probably lose again, but by that point, people will lose interest.

No, this is the cop Trying to subdue a black carjacking, crack dealing, prior felon that not only ran from cops and put people at risk, but fought being subdued by striking cops, biting one, and grabbing the testicles of the cop while handcuffed.

Nuff said. The verdict should have been NOT GUILTY across the board.

Well, if you never heard the reason, then maybe you should find out before judging that the officer was out of line.

Unlikely...the department canned him when the video tape went public.

"he'll end up getting capped somewhere in the neighborhood while on duty."

Since he was fired by the LAPD, it's not likely that he will be spending any time in "the neighborhood."

Quite frankly, I think the cop is lying about the kid grabbing his groin, I think he just roughed that kid up, and then the real scumbag is the second cop who whacked him across the face. BUT! The groin grab COULD be true, therefore, I didn't think there was much chance of getting a conviction.

I gotta blame the DA for bringing this to trial. If they decided not to, there would be some bad feelings and accusations, but big deal, happens all the time. Letting it go to trial opens up all sorts of ill racial feelings on both sides, and just poisons the air. Gee, nice job DA!

Find out the facts before you comment. This "child" was fleeing from police after a carjacking!.
This "child" has had almost a half-dozen criminal encounters with police before.
This "child" is a felon.
This "child" fought like an animal when cornered injuring three cops.
This "child" bit, hit, and struggled with cops even until and after he was handcuffed.
This "child" is probably glad people like you exist to blame cops for every SNIP of video that only shows the poor "child".
This "child" was properly dealt with and I hope he remains in jail A LONG TIME.
This "child" committed adult crimes, and should do adult time.
Unfortuantely, this "child" is probably going to be out on the streets right now reoffending. I think the kid was lucky to walk away from the encounter with a full set of teeth.

Are you talking about the kid tyring to "cop a feel" on the police officer? I'm sure the cop doesn't like that to be refered to as his "minor"

Do you know every fact about everything before you comment on it? I didn't think so.

That was why I said I DON'T REMEMBER! Obviously, if I was a know it all like you, I would have pretended I knew it all.

Since you have all the facts, I would be happy to see your source.

Oh, and P.S. Don't try to tell me what to do.

Hell, they ran this story into the ground for 3 days when it happened. I guess my sources would be ...all television networks and their associated talk shows.

However, if this was wrong then, then I am wrong now, since I have not kept up with the case since the original incident several months ago.

I remember the story being that they were at a gas station and the dad had expired plates. That was the only thing I have ever read as far as why the police were dealing with them at all.

If that's the case, I can't imagine why they would tell his son to go up against the car.

Bryan. The boy's father was stopped for expired tags. The boy ran from the car. It was not a carjacking. That I do know for a fact. If he ever carjacked in the past, it's another issue, but you were wrong here.

I am not opposed to calling things like it is, but you have turned this kid into a monster, which is unfair to him. There are enough monsters out there that we don't need to go slandering folks.

I don't think the cop can be convicted

If 5 jurors found him not guilty, then he will never be convicted.

A hung jury 11-1 or 10-2 against the police officer might have been a different story.

This is good news for the police officer.

FWIW, I think he's guilty of assault, but apparently his lawyers are good picking the right jury.

Ok, youre right. My roomate is here and we are discussing the case and sorting it out. I have this case confused with the one going on in Milwaukee, WI right now. I was wrong, and got this case and its facts confused.

Im going to go cower in the corner now. Sorry.
