Ronald Weekley Jr., a 20-year-old Venice skateboarder, was brutally beaten by Los Angeles police officers for (get this...) skateboarding on the wrong side of the street.


Ronald suffered a concussion, broken cheekbone and broken nose from the beating, as bystanders watched helplessly and captured most of the beating on tape. Sounds too familiar to you.... that's right, we are talking about the same police agency that beat Rodney King in 1991.

Police brutality is the use of any force that exceeds the necessary amount needed to accomplish a lawful police purpose. By ending this form of violence, you not only are protecting many innocent people but you are also in turn making the country a better and safer place to live.

Join us today as we tell the L.A.P.D. to stop the violence, and demand the bogus charges agsint Weekley, [obstructing/resisting a police officer with force] ,be immediately dropped by the Los Angeles District Attorney's office.

Enough is enough! Demand Justice for Ronald Weekley Jr.!
