Crowd cheers as LAPD cop gets knocked out!  (explicit language)


Police have a rough job these days, especially with the public’s heightened awareness of officer misconduct. Everyday more cops are being recorded by citizen bystanders. But in the city of Hawthorne near Los Angles, the LAPD were outmatched. An unidentified unarmed Black male was not in the mood for police and engaged in hand-to-hand combat. The result left one officer knocked out. The suspect was not shot and eventually was arrested.
