These police are disgusting and evil human beings spewing such garbage rhetoric out of their mouths; they should be ashamed of themselves. They arrested the 13-year old–who was defending a young girl from being verbally assaulted by the off-duty cop for walking on his grass–for assault and criminal threatening! Yet the off-duty cop who FIRED A GUN INTO THE GROUND and assaulted children was found to be a law abiding citizen? This is yet another instance of CRIMINAL JUSTICE or justice for criminal thugs. This is the country we live in…it is appalling and a miscarriage of justice.
Anaheim police defend decision to not arrest off-duty officer after altercation
“Anaheim police Chief Raul Quezada told reporters his officers interviewed everyone involved in the skirmish, and arrested a 13-year-old boy on suspicion of making criminal threats, with the off-duty officer contending that the teen had threatened to shoot him. The boy said he told the off-duty officer he was going to “sue” him.
Another teen was arrested for allegedly assaulting the officer during the struggle. Quezada said the off-duty officer, who has not been identified, was interviewed and his weapon was seized.
“There was insufficient evidence at the time to prove the officer’s actions rose to the level of a criminal act,” Quezada said. The chief noted that the officer did not aim his weapon at anyone, but fired at the ground.
Quezada said the investigation would ultimately be turned over to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office for review within two weeks, and although the officer was not arrested, “criminal charges could still be brought against any and all parties involved.”
He added that the confrontation was the culmination of an ongoing dispute between the officer and teens who have repeatedly walked on his lawn.”
