Video Shows El Paso, Texas Cop Pulling A Gun On Children In Lower Valley

Submitted by: daegog 4 months ago in News & Politics



An excerpt from the El Paso Times: The incident, which occurred on Thursday and resulted in the officer being placed on desk duty, is being investigated, city officials said Saturday after the video surfaced and was reported by the media.

El Paso Deputy City Manager Dionne L. Mack and El Paso Police Department spokesman Sgt. Enrique Carrillo said at a news conference Saturday that an adult and a minor were arrested for interfering with the duties of a police officer. No injuries were reported.

The video, which was posted at about 7 p.m. Friday on Facebook by a person with the handle "Aj-King Stoner," begins in the middle of an altercation between a police officer and a boy who appears to be a teenager. The video was posted with a comment, "Hahahaha f*** the cops."

The video is laden with curse words, mostly from children yelling at police officers. It shows an unidentified officer with his hand on the head of a boy who is sitting on the sidewalk by the Seville Recreation Center in a neighborhood north of Ascarate Park.

At least six young boys can be seen in the video yelling at the officer. The officer then pulls out his handgun, points it at the boys and yells “Back up! Back up (expletive).”

Don,t know if the kid arrested was arrested for filming or may have been arrested for interfering with police which is illegal.  Don't matter if what you are doing is legal or not if you do it and get in the way of a officer doing his duty woo to you.
   As far as the one kid he was not a child maybe a teen. I have no sympathy for the other kids standing around and yelling lucky I was not there this situation is what billy clubs were made for.
   Stand back you little shit!!!!  No I won't!!!   wack wack wack   Now will you stand back.
  Maybe a little elctro shock will do the trick.
     Its like that kid in the park a week or so ago, the prefect time to see how far I can throw a smart ass white kid.

It is not illegal to film   police in situations like this
So why was the kid with a camera arrested? He seemed to be doing nothing wrong

thezigrat In Massachusetts and Illinois, the courts have not yet ruled about this particular subject so technically you have to have their consent to film them or their conversation.

In the other 48 states, ON-DUTY cops cannot legally claim a right to privacy while out doing their jobs so you can film them.

thezigrat we don't know why the kid was being arrested. The cops did allow the child to pass the camera to his mother who continue to film. There are some cities I don't know if El Paso is one of these that it is illegal to film police officers.
My guess would be he was arrested for failing to comply with a lawful order

Turner VS Driver may cover this, but it is not against Texas state law to record public servants carrying out their duties.

If he can't handle 10 year olds without putting a gun in their face, he needs to find a new job.

For 100 years, teachers all over this country have handled rowdy 10 year olds without aiming a gun in their face.

I don't see anything wrong with anything that has transpired in the video. The police did what they needed to do to maintain order in a hostile situation. Yes it's very reasonable to assume that these children may have posed a threat. As well as the crazy adults at the scenes. What's appalling is the massive amount of disrespect for authority these people are showing.

marsii I'd be pissed if that cop were my son and he got shot by some little 12yo twat.  Unfortunately we have taught our offspring that it's ok to be a little douche bags in school, in neighborhoods, to all adults.  They all need a good paddling.  Once.  Just one good ass-kicking so they know where they stand in the Grand Order of things.

LordJim I mouthed off to a cop when I was a kid.  He gave me  a boot in the ass and sent me on my way.  I didn't do it again.  Nor did I tell my parents because one boot in the ass was enough.

People are insane when it comes to parenting, who is we? You imply that your parents were not beyond disciplining you but you still managed to mouth off to a cop  without having a gun drawn on you. Yet you still manage to make the bold proclamation, "my kids would never". Which is it? the generation before parenting was  poor, this generations parenting,or is it that your parenting is the only good parenting ever?

We'll have to agree to disagree. If you need to reach for a fire-arm to deal with a child you are you are in the wrong job. Or your society is fucked.

LordJim you have a weird idea of what calming the situation is. She was only yelling at the officers and doing nothing to control the children. Apparently you and me watched entirely different videos

dm2754 Same video. Different attitude. It was the officers that needed calming, not the kids. Adult police officers panicking around eight year olds.

LordJim I'm sure proper police training includes awareness of all potential threats.
The crowd in this video demonstrated that they are on willing to listen to the officers. but they did respect and listen to mr. Glock

  • dm2754  respect and listen to mr. Glock   
If that is what you regard as respect then I despair. Mr fucking Glock? If you see no difference between fear and respect for the law then what kind of society will you accept?

Eight year old kids threatened by cops pulling guns and to you it's "respect Mr Glock."? That is disgusting.

LordJim now you're just grasping at straws. I've noticed whenever someone is pointed out to be wrong they just doubled down and become more and more absurd.

Apparently you just have an issue with cops so you need to understand not all cops are bad. yes they have flaws just like every other human being

dm2754 "Apparently you just have an issue with cops..."
You are pretending not to see a difference between having an issue with cops and having an issue with this cop.
If I am riding a bus, and the driver panics at the prospect of road work ahead, I have an issue with that driver, not drivers.
If I am in a restaurant, and the cook is incapable of cooking my steak medium rare, I have a problem with that cook, not cooks.
If I am reading online comments, and I read something like what you just wrote, I have a problem with that jackass, not neccessarily all jackasses.

dm2754 OK, Tea's in  the oven. You have not addressed my question. I don't have an issue with cops; they are part of my family. I have an issue with abject obedience to authority. I don't think we should, especially not eight year olds. If kids can't tell authority to fuck off then we are lost.
