Wow. I was on this kid's side before, but $6 million? Like, f*** you. How is that even remotely justifiable? I would guess the Bush family has hit some hard financial times.

Will the footage of them losing the suit be posted on YouTube?

Wow is right. This steams me. I agree,$6 mil is steep, but if a cop touched my kid for THAT, there'd be hell to pay. Is that kid ever going to respect a policeman again? Nope.

Seems no one was listening..the kid said he doesn't have a father & the cop was the still "flappin'" & didn't have the brains to shut up. What took him so long to figure out the camera? Clearly he was having a bad day & found an alternate target.

I now live in Arizona & they actually build skateboard parks. My son spends alot of his free time there & out of trouble. They work beautifully, give these little "dudes" a place to go & let the cops actually fight crimes.

There'll be a settlement for under $.5m, maybe half of it should go towards a skatepark.
