The 13 Biggest LAPD Screw-Ups of All Time

The LAPD is a vast organization. While (hopefully) most of its officers are well-intentioned, the department has experienced huge screw-ups, with behavior that has ranged from horrible brutality to corruption to tragically unexplained uses of force. Some of the instances here are recent ones, while others are from the not-so-distant past. The saddest thing is that from these thirteen enormous LAPD screw-ups, it's hard to decide which one is the worst of all time.

Vote up which incidents on this list were the absolute worst screw-ups made by LAPD.

    Ronald Weekley Jr. was a 20-year-old college student who was skateboarding near his home in August of 2012 when he was violently arrested by four LAPD officers. The initial reason for stopping Weekley was that he was skateboarding on the wrong side of the street. Weekley ended up with a broken nose and cheekbone, as well as a concussion, after the arrest. A bystander recorded the arrest, and the video shows that Weekley was punched in the face after he had been handcuffed and restrained. 


    Weekley was booked for resisting arrest. The violence of his arrest is being investigated by two separate departments in the LAPD.
