  1. Good! Sooo the officer asks some questions and the kids responds with some bad language and who knows what else. The officer grabs him and it snowballs. Mean while the kids buddies are filming, maybe it was planned. Bad and sad times we are in. I am not an arm chair cretic but I am sure there is more to this story then what is layed out here. Safe day to all first responders out there!
