After the release and spread of cell phone video footage showing an LAPD off-duty officer firing his weapon in a incident with children, hundreds took to the streets of Anaheim Wednesday evening protesting the flagrant abuse of power.
The police officer, who was not arrested, was placed on administrative leave according to a police statement Wednesday night. A 13 and 15 year old was taken into custody immediately following the incident. It was reported that the 13-year-old boy was released to his mother from the Theo Lacy Detention facility in Orange earlier Wednesday.
More to come.
