Off-duty LAPD officer fires gun during physical struggle with Latino teenage boy

  • An armed off-duty Los Angeles police officer fired his weapon during a scuffle with a 13-year-old boy on Tuesday, sparking protests in Anaheim, California, on Wednesday night.
  • According to KTLA 5, the Anaheim Police Department cited kids continually walking on the officer’s lawn as the reason for the altercation. Cell phone footage, however, suggests there’s more to the story.
  • A bystander began filming once the struggle was already underway and later posted the video to YouTube. 
  • In it, a teenage boy in a hooded sweatshirt pushes back against a bald man in a blue checkered shirt who is holding him by the collar. Read more (2/23/17 6:40 AM)

The T.O. & the BOOT! I’m really excited about this project. I’ve been developing it for a good handful of years and am currently figuring out publishing options. It’s a pretty crazy story with quite a few moving parts, so I’m still tightening things up; but I’m hoping to have something for people to read ONLINE for FREE sometime soon! 

It’ll be my first time doing my own thing (Story + Art) since serializing PEEPO CHOO with Kodansha and I’m really PUMPED! 

I might have to try crowdfunding this. Hope I can get enough interest & support! More info soon!

POST UPDATE: Just adding some more teaser images :)

RACIST LAPD OFF DUTY OFFICER HARASSES, VERBALLY & PHYSICALLY ASSAULTS TEENAGERS AND SHOOTS AT THEM. Notice how the officers treated this thug with a badge and gun. They protect their own, not the public. Thank God there were people recording this criminal thug or else it could have been worse. THIS IS terrorism but the corporate owned Trump republican shill media never wants to talk about WHITE TERRORISM or POLICE TERRORISM.

In 1992, after the Rodney King beating, OGs from the Crips and Bloods in the Watts district of Los Angeles met to end the violence that was happening in their communities. Black people everywhere were angry about the Rodney King verdict and decided it was time to act. Hundreds of Bloods and Crips would meet in a gymnasium and declare a ceasefire against each other. They had realized that the police were the real enemy. The gang leaders would also create a sports league for the community. Hundreds of black men and women from the bloods and Crips no longer looked at each other as enemies. They partied together and played on sports teams together. The peace Treaty ended over 30 years of gang violence and the homicide rate dropped 44%. After the Watts treaty, several Latino gangs and many more black gangs all over California began to adopt a similar peace treaties. The Watts treaty lasted for several years before the LA police would infiltrate the movement and cause chaos. This is Black History that they do not teach in schools. This is what they will never tell you about black gangs. The LA Gang Truce was a symbol of hope to the black community and today it remains that. We do not need white people to help us solve any of our problems. We have the potential to be a mighty people. The violence in our communities can stop. All it takes is for dedicated black souls to get together. So the next time you hear about the LA Riots…make sure you remember the LA Gang truce as well.

May Day in L.A. 

Thousands of people took to the streets in the annual May Day marches in downtown Los Angeles and Boyle Heights on Sunday. Their cause ranged from immigration reform and politics to police accountability and an end to racism.

And the different movements shared one thing in common: all were offended by something Donald Trump had said.
