This was filmed in 2003 in Eugene, Oregon, I am the kid at the front door in all black, I was about 20 at the time. I probably would not have handled the situation the same today, but I was a kid.

We were finishing up the editing of our skateshop video, and most of the skate team was over at my apartment partying or whatever. While i was inside unaware of what was going on, two of the kids there had been messing around on razor scooters out in front of my house which happened to be a big open slab of cement that was going to be a construction site for a commercial building.

Someone had called the police, and when the guys playing around saw the police coming up on the scene from a few hundred yards, they ran into my house with the scooters. I still did not know what had gone on at this point or why the cops were even there. everyone present at my house sat in the front room while i talked to the two police at the door. i continually asked what they were at my door for, and the officer standing at my door shown here would say "whichever two kids just ran in here, those two kids come out or else you are all going to jail." there was about 8 or 10 kids in the room, and no one spoke up, and i didn't even know what he was talking about because i had not seen kids run in, and hadn't known they were even out playing on scooters.

No one acknowledged it, and so i said, "i cant help you, this is my house i don't even want you here, please leave, you dont have a warrant." and I shut the door on them several times. He kept opening the door and began to say that we were all going to jail since he didn't even know whose house it was. This was about the time i started videotaping because it was a tense scene.

I had just recently had a bad experience where i was shooting photos on a public place of my friend skateboarding, and a policeman had come and given BOTH of us tickets for skateboarding/vandalism when I hadn't been doing anything but shooting photos. So when the office was at my door this time, i did not want to be involved in whatever it was he was there for and i knew they don't have a right to enter without a warrant.
finally, i got my drivers license to show him that the address matched that of the house he was at. you see in the video me reading my name and address of the house and he asks to take my ID. I knew at that point he would take it, radio in my name, and it would already be the beginning of a police record since everyone they have contact with they file an FI (field interview).

I didn't want to be a part of whatever he was there for, or go on the record for anything, and i knew they didn't have a warrant, so at that point i wanted them to leave. in the video you hear me say "i dont want to give it to you" as i start to pull my hand away. you can hear i am not yelling and i am not making any threatening motions.

Immediately after that, the second police officer steps in, puts me in a full-nelson headlock, throws me face down onto the cement outside, and puts his knee in my back and handcuffs me. as i am pulled out in the video you hear me say "what the fuck is wrong with you?"
Then officer Magana proceeds to enter my house without a warrant and they came in and took out all 8 or 9 kids and handcuffed all of us.

Later, it was revealed that this office Magana was involved in sex scandals where he was forcing women into sex acts with him while threatening to take them to jail. Reports also came forward of him busting college / underage parties, and telling young women he wouldnt get them in trouble if they performed sex acts on him. He was convicted and is serving a life sentence now.
