They treated me like I'm some type of animal: Compton man speaks out as leaders call for removal...

of deputies who violently arrested him KTLA
Compton city officials on Wednesday called for the removal of Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies who beat a 24-year-old resident in a violent caught-on-video arrest.

The man, Dalvin Price, was lying on the ground as two deputies held him down. One deputy used his knees to restrain the young man while appearing to punch him as another deputy joins and starts kicking him, the viral May 31 video showed.

One person is heard yelling at Price to get on the ground. He’s heard yelling back that he is on the ground as they pummel him.

“I was kicked, my head was banged on the floor, nonstop, repeatedly, after I told them that I wasn’t resisting,” Price said. “They treated me like I was type of animal, like I wasn’t a human being.”

“We demand the same treatment that deputies provide to the residents of Malibu, Palos Verdes and other communities,” Brown said. “And according to the size of our sheriff’s contract, they have 22 million reasons to do so.”

The woman who caught Price’s arrest on video said she has been harassed because of it.

“Since I pressed that record button, it’s like my life has been turned upside down,” Asia Hall said. “I’m getting harassed, my son has been pulled over, me and my family are afraid to leave our home.”

Hard to post another. Broken hearts.
