On Wednesday afternoon, a group of teens were walking home from school in an Anaheim neighborhood when an Anaheim resident confronted the teens. The resident is an LAPD officer who was off duty at the time. He complains that the teens were allegedly walking on his property. The officer and teens exchanged some words and that’s when the off duty policeman allegedly grabbed a 13 year old boy. The other teens immediately took out their phones to start recording what happened next.

The 13 year old boy allegedly threatened to shoot the man, according to Anaheim police, which led to the off duty officer trying to handcuff the boy. “You’ve been resisting the whole time,” the man told the boy, who you can see in the video refusing to let go. “Punch a kid in the nuts, that’s a pussy move,” the boy responded. “Let me go, for the last time!”

The boy alleged that the off duty officer called a girl a “cunt” when telling her to get off his lawn, then tackled the boy first when he stood up for the girl.
