Remind me never to go to Eugene, Oregon. Evidently it's loaded with white trash low lifes.

NPD @ 8/6/2013 1:50 PM

So at what point can an officer start to defend him/herself from being injured by a minor? Does the kid have to pull out a knife or gun before the cop can finally be justified in using the least amount of force necessary to stop the kid from injuring him/her???? I would've loved to see the other cops take some of the protestors for disorderly.

Those officers used great restraint against a very aggressive and unreasonable group of people. If that officer would have aggressively back handed that child, like all the created drama might lead you to believe, that child would have been sent tumbling down the sidewalk. And that was simply not the case. Job well done to all of the officers at that scene.

Wow, for a minute there I though this was happening at People's Park in I know where the lost generation goes on vacation..Oregon. Great example of how cops get treated and the restraint they use everyday...even when bitten.

so tired of trash @ 8/6/2013 3:19 PM

Thank god they were able to use their Obama phones to video record an effective PSA on how white trash continue the cycle. How about a good old fashioned interfering with a PO and then a liberal dose of electricity. I wonder if the white trash gene will ever develop a resistence to the Taser like they have employment?

Mark @ 8/6/2013 3:20 PM

It takes a community to raise a child...

fedtrnr @ 8/6/2013 3:24 PM

Good job blues, I am pretty impressed it didn't get worse. What a horrible neighborhood full of trash. How many times did we hear someone had a child taken by the state too.....

Dkiss @ 8/6/2013 3:32 PM

Okay so the video about made me puke I thought it was the body worn type, but thank you it wasn't. Some people just shouldnt be allowed to have kids and this is why. Charge her with indangering the welfare of a child or something ...... Tazer tazer tazer

Motorjock @ 8/6/2013 3:47 PM

It seems this community has a lot of low lifes who don't appear to be well educated and with their language appear to be nothing but trailer trash are just producing future criminals of America

mwp72 @ 8/6/2013 4:42 PM

Wow! I've seen animals behave better than these people(and have more sense). Good job, officer.

Sam Donaldson @ 8/6/2013 4:44 PM

The officer hardly touched the kid. Maybe the kid should have been cuffed at the beginning? Perhaps ASP or S&W can bring out a line of small cuffs in bright colors perhaps with cartoon characters on them.

Also consider this: in light of the nature of the kid's evident parents and friends, the kid could have been infected with AIDS which would have made the biting a lethal attempt, even attempted murder.

Wow. The Fing cop hit the Fing kid for no Fing reason, that's Fing illegal, she's Fing got it on Fing tape, she's Fing going to show it to the Fing Police.
Got the kid's attention though, didn't he? Should have bitch slapped the whole lot of them.
I guess white trash are just the same as any other trash in that Fing town.

Dan @ 8/6/2013 5:27 PM

Wow. A perfect example of keeping a Professional Face by law enforcement!! It's amazing how much the general public know the LAW. You would think we live in a world full of attorney's and judges.

The boy did not want to go with his dad. Mom did not have custodial rights (imagine that. Court said the child was better off with dad.!!) So, call CPS and let them take custody of the kid and they can figure it out.

The mom should have been arrested when she would not let go of her son, obviously Delaying the Officer from performing his lawful duties. (CA penal code 148, misdemeanor). The kid got what he deserved!! He should have taken the little turd to jail for assault on an officer.

henry Johnson @ 8/6/2013 5:32 PM

There are many "lowlifes" in our country, not just Oregon. I loved my time as a cop in the Los Angeles area (31 yrs). I enjoyed the excitement. I do not miss these types of idiots.

renee rhodes @ 8/6/2013 6:06 PM

what the fuck if the child parents would do that they go to fucking jail.shot them fucking pigs.

renee rhodes @ 8/6/2013 6:17 PM

what the hell.this poor kid did not deserve this kind of abuse from a pig.if the parents would have done that they would be arrested for abuse.

Well, well, another generation of guaranteed work , for our Blues in Eugene , Oregon!! If this video is representative of that community, then there appears , we have new crop, destined for jail , or the Penitentiary , maybe worst. Where are the parents of all these slime balls, and junior thugs !!! I hate to even guess !!! Let's hope it's just in that neighborhood !!!
If this tape were bleeped , for the profanity, it wouldv'e been a continuous bleep !!!

oldfart2008 @ 8/6/2013 6:46 PM

Renee, this poor kid? Are you serious? If he had bit you what would you have done? Don't answer that I already know. "Son, it's not nice to bite people." The officer had the right to stop the kid for biting. And, it wasn't much of a love tap. The kid needs his bottom beat.

ralph @ 8/6/2013 9:19 PM

The little fuck bite me I slap him to . The ho running her lips needs to get a life . Where are her kids , not with her from what she said . The State got them , so she has room to say something .

Dave @ 8/6/2013 11:25 PM

Wow, a park filled with idiots. Take the kid. Arrest the mom for obstruction. Consider arresting the big mouth for threats if they arise to the proper level. And take anyone else who obstructs.

Kevin @ 8/6/2013 11:26 PM

I would have locked up the little shit pain in the ass kid that kept screaming, for discon or obstructing. Screw that, kid was inciting a fucking riot!

EODK9Trainer @ 8/7/2013 2:52 AM

Wow. I have no issues with what the officer did.

dennis @ 8/7/2013 3:30 AM

As a police officer the only thing I seen that the officers didn't do, is they should have arrested the crowd agitators for inciting a riot.

Renee @ 8/7/2013 4:14 AM

What the HECK!!! These are some serious PWT folks, even the kids are confrontation with officers, everyone dropping F bombs...a hot mess. Where are the Child Protective Services personnell?? Say safe Blues!

Renee @ 8/7/2013 4:30 AM

What the HECK!!! These are some serious PWT folks, even the kids are confrontational with the officers, everyone dropping F bombs, some even inciting a riot...a hot mess. Where are the Child Protective Services personnell during this encounter?? Oh they said it was not a CPS situation. The mother screaming "He's not the biological father" The Lil POS saying his BIO Dads name. Mom accusing the guy of molestation, yet the kid is going with him. If the guy in the blue shirt is NOT his dad, where is the dad?? Probably in jail or worse. Blues you handled yourselves very professionally in the face of hurled insults and near threats. Stay safe Blues!

Greg @ 8/7/2013 4:31 AM

Noisy group of white trash who seem to be scared of wearing shirts and shoes....but that's just it, they were insulting and noisy....they didn't gather their 50 friends and neighbors to bum-rush the officers as seems to happen in black neighborhoods. Noisy trash, just not killer trash.

Jack @ 8/7/2013 4:32 AM

Seems to me the slight pop the child got was enough to make him stop biting. The officer held onto the kid for another 10 or 15 minutes and didn't get bit again. Low class folks!

Nelda @ 8/7/2013 4:37 AM

I would have back handed the little punk too! And the rest of the instigators there. Good job, officer! Now only if the stupid parents would follow his example, this little kid might have a chance at a good future.

Lt Dan @ 8/7/2013 5:26 AM

Don't you just hate those calls where you know going in you are going to be the bad guy? Getting bit hurts regardless of who does it and your limbic system creates a response to the pain that you cannot prevent. Nothing to see here. Move along.

Nichole @ 8/7/2013 5:26 AM

For once it's good to see that most of the comments on here are positive (except for one idiot who apparently doesn't know how to type and submit ONE comment, not several of the same) and supportive. I concur with everyone else, the Officer showed incredible restraint and this town is full of imbeciles.

James @ 8/7/2013 5:30 AM

Wow! Why has
the State of Oregon not cleaned up this park and evicted these animals? They are a blight on society and the human race. And the idiot who made the White trash comment, let's not interject race in this matter, all races have their scum and trash with no exceptions.

The weirdo in the tie dye shirt was making me concerned, his body language and avoiding a camera shot of his face was a red flag in itself.
We used to institutionalize people who are aggressive to society but thanks to jimmy carter and the ACLU these sociopaths now run the streets and ruin city parks so the normal people who pay taxes for those parks can not use them. This nation now caters to the most disruptive element of our society, the Sociopath.

I give ten more years and we will be not unlike any 3rd world nation unless we wake up and FAST!

SSgt Bob @ 8/7/2013 8:50 AM

Best thing that ever happened to this poor kid, now he stands a chance to be raised right and return to society you think the court wants to take him away from a parent ........No but im sure they rather him live with his father in a house then in a bus in the park with his mom and 10 fathers ..............great job by the officers involved on keeping there cool

ANGIE @ 8/7/2013 12:47 PM

Shutup and go back to your mobile home or go to jail!!

Lori @ 8/7/2013 6:44 PM

I applaud these officers for the way they handles this. I would have pepper sprayed every one of them idiots, especially the mouthy big shot 11 year old. Then I would have charged him for obstruction of justice. Thanks to the lady the filmed this, I can see why she no longer has custody of her child. She is teaching others it is ok to disrespect law enforcement.

AH @ 8/7/2013 8:50 PM

Wow, they really like to create drama, don't they?

I have worked with this Officer many times and he is one of the, if not the coolest officer with EPD.

I am in awe how much drama these people create, it is fairly sad.

Chuck in KC @ 8/8/2013 11:53 AM

Holy Cow- I haven't seen such white trash people in all my life. Look in the background, it appears to be an old hippie community. and Renee is a nut case.

OregonCopper @ 8/8/2013 7:32 PM

Unfortunately, this is every day business in Eugene...the officer did everything correctly and all I can say to the "camera operator" is that with the chaos that is the Oregon DHS, if they took your kid away from you then you truly are a pile of dung...

I don't have any problem with people questioning us, or even recording us, but this was borderline Obstruction...unfortunately since the Lane County DA's Office is a bit lack on protecting the cops it would be a huge waste of the cops' time and it wouldn't do anything except empower the "camera operator" to think she can contiue this type of nonsense...

Marc @ 8/8/2013 7:52 PM

That was a hit? That was barely a love-tap. Geez, my old man would have knocked me out for biting a cop, I bet we'll see this kid again in a few years, wearing prisoner orange.

Marc @ 8/8/2013 8:32 PM

The guy yelling "F*ck the police!" was really brave, sounded like he was doing it from 75 yards away. I wanted someone to slap the loudmouth with the camera. "I HAD a child taken away!" - you're proud of that?

vincent @ 8/9/2013 11:16 AM

It's called self defense the little brat should not have bit the police officer. Also the adults are showing a real good example on how to behave and talk to adults. Thats whats wrong with this country no respect for anyone.

Really? @ 8/13/2013 2:18 PM

What spam sucking trailer trash. The adult mail didnt see anything, he was only going by what someone else said. The stupid chick recording the incident is nothing but trash.

Really? @ 8/13/2013 2:25 PM

That one kid has a mouth on him, and should have been locked up for disturbing the peace, and for making threats. Funny how the camera operater was telling a huge lie that the officer tried to pepper spray the kid. Pathetic...
