LAPD May Come Under Friendly Fire

The streets of Los Angeles were nearly empty today as news of another brutal police officer attack became public knowledge.

In what now is becoming the possible third vicious attack by the Los Angeles Police Department, all caught on video by witnesses, residents say they are afraid to be outside where they may run into one of those hired to protect us.

This latest incident occured yesterday, shortly after a young man noticed a nearby patrol car. He said he was trying to leave the area as quickly as possible to avoid contact with the officers but a chase ensued and sure enough, when they pulled him from the car he was immediately kicked in the head.

"Just seeing that car was motivation enough to get my ass out of there," the suspect said. "I guess I should have just pulled over quicker and taken my beating instead of pissing them off by trying to get out of their line of sight."

This follows a chain of events that is even further tainting the LAPD's questionable hiring of possibly bi-polar police officers.

In August of this year another video broadcast first on YouTube showed an officer beating a suspect in the face with his fists.

On Monday of this week the District Attorney also released a statement that another video shot last year shows yet another incident involving brutal actions by police officers.

It showed officers putting a vagrant suspect in the back of their vehicle, pepper spraying him in the face, then closing the door so that it would have the full impact. According to the report the video shows the man's contorted face pressed against the window of the car as he struggled to breath.

Police officials are not denying these incidents occurred but were unwilling to comment on the well documented actions of those officers involved in this string of violent behavior.

City officials held a news conference in downtown Los Angeles to warn citizens to be as careful as possible while in public and that anyone coming into contact with or who find themselves in the same vicinity as police officers or patrol cars, they should slow down so as not to draw any attention to themselves, try to remain calm and leave the area as quickly as possible.

"But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?"

Cheers, JB

Hey Matt-man,

It's a little frightening with all these things coming to light. I thought there was a burgler at my house last night but it turned out it was just a guy walking down the street who saw a cruiser go by. He was afraid that if he stayed on the sidewalk they might stop him just for the hell of it.

The LAPD seems to be graduates of "Police Academy" in the Bizarro World.

Why are the police trying to show bad example to the civilians by beating up the innocent ones?

jajaja..thanks!
No, you don't need to be on beta, the way they have the HTML written, it's the same for both versions.
I know what you are talking about, it took me a while to decide to change to beta and take the rist.
However, blogger saves your previous template, just in case.
Good luck! ;)
