Just wow. The students of San Diego State University have since began peaceful protests in hopes of speaking with campus administration in regards to racial tension and campus police brutality.
The details of what happened prior have not come to light, but the video — shot by a fellow student — shows nothing that warranted this young man being treated this way. The force used was excessive —very. Matter of fact, if there were no video cameras or people around, this kid might have not made it out alive. That’s a terrifying reality, especially since he was not posing a threat to the officers and was clearly well subdued.
Horrified students took to social media to blast school officials for their handling of the situation.
SDSU students allege that instead of school officials addressing the arrest and attempting to ease their concerns, the doors were closed and locked in their faces.
How does a seemingly reasonable conversation turn into this type of confrontation?
As of yet, San Diego State University has not released any statements via the media nor social media.
