On July 12, 2012 around 10:30pm, the LAPD pushed the groups further and further down Spring Street towards 6th Street, north on Spring from 5th Street, and West on 5th Street.
An unknown man was walking toward a grey van, the LAPD line advances towards him. He backs up, turns to walk away, and steps on the curb. An LAPD officer pushes him back into the street. Once in the street another LAPD officer shots the man a close range.
The man stumbles to the ground. Occupiers go to help the man but LAPD keep advancing. The same office who shot the man, then kicks his skateboard right into his face. After that, two LAPD squash the man’s face into the cement before they violently arrest him.
