Sacramento Police Put Bag On 12-Year-Old’s Head In Viral Video

The Black Lives Matter folks in Sacramento are none-too-pleased with the bacon-scented badge bearers who swore an oath to “serve and protect” them.

According to a story in Rolling Out magazine, a viral video sparked massive anger when police were seen putting what appeared to be a plastic bag on a 12-year-old boy’s head while he was being arrested.

That “plastic bag” is known as a “spit sock” which is used when police believe the suspect will spit on them while in their custody. Obviously, this boy was in protest of his arrest, but once he was handcuffed he was calm and remained so throughout the ordeal.

He wasn’t fighting the cops. He wasn’t wrestling with the cops. Why did they feel a need to do this? We kinda know the answer…
