WATCH: Deputies Hold Black Teens at Gunpoint who were Victims of Knife Assault

The incompetency of modern-day policing was on full display last week when Los Angeles sheriff’s deputies were called about a homeless man threatening to kill three Black teenage boys with a knife, only for the deputies to arrive and hold the teens at gunpoint while the man with the knife got away.

Even after bystanders tried to tell the deputies they were detaining the wrong people, the deputies were not about to be told what to do.

“Get away from me,” a deputy yells at the bystanders who are nowhere near him as he keeps his rifle pointed at the kids. “Back up!”

Eventually, deputies determined the kids did not do anything wrong and released them. But by that time, the homeless man with the knife was gone.

The deputies, however, justified their actions by pointing out the Black kids had skateboards which made them fear for their lives, claiming the call came in as an “assault with a deadly weapon,” specifically the teens attacking the homeless man with their skateboards.

But a woman at the scene claimed otherwise.

“I called you guys to tell you there’s a crazy Mexican man chasing three African-Americans with skateboards,” said a woman identifying herself as the manager of a nearby Buffalo Wild Wings.

“I told your sergeant who was the problem and what was going on.”

According to Tammi Collins, the mother of one of the boys, the boys were sitting at a bus bench when they were approached by a homeless man who asked them for crack cocaine before pulling a knife on them.

She said the boys were using their skateboards to shield themselves from the knife. And several people were on the scene telling the deputies the teens were the victims so it’s not clear who told the deputies that the teens were the assailants.

Collins posted the 11-minute video to Instagram with the following description:

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!!!

As far as the homeless man goes, deputies determined “no crime had taken place” after questioning the teens. They also said they had to deal with a large “uncooperative” crowd at the scene which made them further fear for their lives, according to Santa Clarita Valley Signal.

But the crowd was trying to keep them from killing innocent children while a dangerous homeless man was making his getaway.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
