VIDEO: California Officers Arrested on Suspicion of Abusing Children at Police-Run Boot Camp

Four Southern California police officers have been arrested on suspicion of physically abusing 13 children who were attending a police-run boot camp in San Luis Obispo.

Two officers from Huntington Park and two from South Gate were arrested this week. All four posted $20,000 bond, KABC TV reports.

From May 17 to 24, the one-week Leadership Empowerment and Discipline Boot Camp Program brought at-risk youth to Camp San Luis Obisbo, a National Guard military base.

Promotional materials say the program, which is sponsored by Huntington Park and South Gate police departments, is designed for children experiencing behavior or disciplinary problems.

The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office began its investigation on May 28 after receiving reports of abuse from the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services.

In early June, an attorney for some of the children involved said some had been beaten bloody and one suffered broken fingers.

If true, lets investigate first, then they should be jailed! If not then whoever made these allegations and conducted the investigation thus far should be prosecuted. Either way someone is not telling the truth or at the least the whole truth.

You guys just ruined your careers and you are probably going to do some jail time on top of that. Will wait for the completed investigation for more comments.
