Watch: L.A. County Sheriffs Point Guns at Three Black Teens as Bystander Informs 'They're the Victims' [Video]

It seems the Los Angeles police haven’t been paying any attention to the public’s messaging over these last few months.

In yet another unfortunate and potentially life-threatening situation, three Black teens were profiled and police rolled up on them with their guns out — even though they were the ones in need of help.

via TMZ:

the mother of one of the teens, says her son and a couple of friends were sitting at a bus stop when a homeless man asked if they had any crack and then tried to steal their stuff. She says the man became super aggro, ripped his shirt off and pulled a knife on them, and attempted to stab them. She says the kids fended the man off with their skateboards.

Tammi says several 911 calls were placed and all but one claimed the boys were the victims, but one caller, she says, told the dispatcher “two black guys were attacking a homeless man.”

The deputies have their weapons trained on the teens, as bystanders explained they were the victims, but the cops were unmoved. 

In a later press conference, the L.A. County Sheriff’s department claims a 911 call came in as an assault with a deadly weapon … specifically, 2 adult males hitting another man with a skateboard.

he kids were detained and after deputies spoke with them and witnesses, they were released and no arrests were made.

I wanted to share what happened to my son yesterday in SCV when he was with a couple of friends sitting at a bus stop headed home. He was attacked by a gentleman (homeless guy) who approached them and first asked them if they had any crack then tried to take their things. The guy became so aggressive that he took his shirt off pulled out a knife and whip them tried to stabbed them. His friends only had their skate boards to cover them from the knife and whip so they held it out to keep distance from this guy. Several bystanders including the restaurant manager of Buffalo Wild wings called the police to get help for the boys but “One” caller called the police and reported two black guys are attacking a homeless guy. This is how the police responded. This is something my son and his friends will never forget. I’m still wonder how will I ever help my son recover from this traumatic experience. Please pray for my family. Please Share to protect our kids!!!
