Controversial Video Of Police's Use Of Force In Skate Park Arrest

What started off as a routine noise complaint at a skate park in Ripon, California, quickly escalated into a controversial arrest. Police were initially called to the park because an individual was playing loud music, but when police approached the individual, his friends got involved. One of his friends, Eduardo Maldonado, demanded to know why his friend was being approached. Some yelling, multiple tasings and a trip in the back of a patrol car later, and the video of Maldonado's arrest has ignited outrage online. Police advocates say the officers were merely doing their duty, but others believe their use of force was excessive and unwarranted. The Ripon Police Department is currently investigating the incident.
