Several dozen people on Sunday marched to demand justice for a 13-year-old boy who was at the center of a scuffle with an off-duty Los Angeles police officer in Anaheim.
The march, which the boy attended, started at Loara High School and proceeded to several streets, including where Los Angeles police Officer Kevin Ferguson resides.
The incident began on Feb. 22, as kids were walking home from school, and the boy – identified on Sunday by his father as Christian Dorscht – apparently stepped on Ferguson’s lawn.
Videos surfaced on social media showing the off-duty officer struggling with the 13-year-old, and several other teenagers who were aggressive with the officer, before the officer discharged a handgun. It was unclear if he fired on purpose; the shot appeared to go downward, and no one was struck.
Anaheim police arrested Dorscht, but not Ferguson, to the outrage of many in the community.
