USC students protested Monday against the Los Angeles Police Department and accused its officers of racial bias for breaking up two raucous parties early Saturday near campus.

The students said officers were racially biased and used heavy handed tactics, an allegation the agency has refuted. An LAPD spokesman told the Los Angeles Times that officers donned riot gear to break up two house parties after they were pelted with debris. Campus officers also responded to the incident.

Six partygoers were arrested during the chaotic incident and officers used force on one partygoer because he resisted arrest, according to the LAPD.

Students posted videos and tweeted about the clash with officers.

I am so sick and tired of people breaking the law and then when they have to suffer the consequences of their decisions and actions, they want to blame someone else, and more so now want to scream "racial profiling". Maybe the officers couldn't get to the other parties and disperse them because you idiots weren't going with the program when asked to shut it down. Had you done so then perhaps they could have gone across the street and shut down the "all-white" party as well. Please grow up and accept responsibility for your actions and stop whining.

Refer these butt nuggets to a judicial board at the college and have them thrown out of school for violating student discipline policy

Then they can have something to bitch about

From what I read in the LA times the first attempt at shutting down the party #1(black) was basically laughed at by these pampered little brats. Party #2 (white) was in the process of shutting down when the LAPD arrived. Returning to Party #1 resulted in the Officers being pelted with debris. The term " scholars" was used by one of the students (?) in describing himself and others at Party#1. Ha. Of course LAPD will probably side with the students, as their parents vote and we all know what that means. Blues, Stay Safe.

Just think these students are going to be our future leaders. Parents spend a lot of money to send these brats to college and parents deserve better than this. As far as racial bias goes that is BS and just excuse to be a Adam Henry.
