  • Steph

    Uh-oh. Selena’s “family” is a bunch of hoodlums!

  • Wowzers.

    Cops think they’re SO fucking tough and aggressive and feel the need that they can do whatever they want. They’re beating the poor guy and to me, it looked like they did absolutely nothing wrong. Shame on those cops! Did anyone see that puddle of blood left behind near his head ?! God …

  • beyyytchhh.

    ohmyfuckinggod, i’m seriously in the verge of tears right now. i hope those shitty ass policemen burn in hell. what the hell is there problem? they didn’t do anything wrong but ask for the bade numbers, etc. it’s not like they were throwing stuff at them.

    fuck the police. they abuse their jobs all the fucking time.

    ohh my god. those cops were fucking beating on the boys. whether they did anything or not, the guys weren’t fighting the police until the police starting beating them up.

    that is just not right.

  • caroline

    holy shit! those cops are fuckign crazzy!

    Ridiculous! And what they did wrong was that they didn’t move a parked vehicle fast enough so chaos ensued apparently!

    did u see his face?

    i cant believe this shit

    u know i would have fought back

    OH AND, the cops then arrived at the hospital Chris was taken to and BRAGGED about the “punk kids” they beat up to the nurses.

    That’s probably the best part of the whole thing.

    Also, I think it’s great that this was posted on here. The more awareness about this topic, the better. Things like this happen everyday and are never publicized. There is a great potential to solve the issue of police brutality through this.


    First Ryan Moats’ situation and now this. I hate the police. They are so retarded. You know, at one of the high schools in the town where I live, (thank god it wasn’t at MY high school) a police officer was caught today for having an intimate relationship with a student. FUCK the police man, FUCK THEM.

  • CorrieLynn

    I can’t get over how uncalled for it was for the cops to just start beating the shit out of him. It’s things like these that make me lose so much respect for police officers.

  • emily ford

    Since when is OceanUp a Disney site? It has BECOME one. But I’m pretty sure it’s about teen/young celebs.

  • Brie

    fuck philly police and their gay bike helmets!

    poor tfair!

    I hope the officers were reported they used excessive force & it was just not needed.

    Okay, to everyone out there who wants to kill the police, let me explain a couple things to you; THEY’RE PHILADELPHIA POLICE. Yes, that should explain enough. South Philly’s onen of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the entire country. How would I know? I lived on a bordering suburb. That’s definitely messed up, but once you see what the Philly cops go through EVERY SINGLE DAY, maybe you’d kind of understand it. Yes, it’s messed up, but these cops are different from others. It’s not alright, but in Philly, it’s nothing out of the norm.

    I repeat: this activity in Philadelphia is normal.


    That doesn’t make it fucking right. Honestly, I don’t care what the fuck they go through. I’m pretty sure they knew the situation when they signed up for the job. SO fucking discusted. How the hell are we ever supposed to feel safe if these are the people in charge. Fucking hell. Crooked cops on power trips.

    There is no way what happend was justified.

  • aliceinwonderland

    no, they didn’t do anything wrong except stick up fo their friends, and even doing that they didnt do anything wrong.

  • Taylor Esposito

    That’s beyond ridiculous. All of them are amazing people & of course no one

    even if they were mouthing off to the police, it doesnt give the polive the right to beat the fuck out of someone. if they touched the police, then the police could touch them.

    but from what im hearing and seeing, they did nothing but try to explain to the police why they were parked there….police got pissed, other people came to help then all hell broke loose.

    and dont give me that bullshit that “this is philly”. I dont care if its downtown detroit. trust me…i live in atlanta. thats all crap. they should know how to handle certain situations. violence isnt necessary every time.

  • beccaa?

    it all started when mercy mercedes got tickets for having their van parked in the alley so they could get their gear and move to the next date for bamboozle. the officers got angry that they were parking there, and told them to move, and when they started to hurry, they asked for id or permit whatever, and then they started looking for it. then the officers said, “it’s too late, you’re already getting tickets.” and they gave mercy mercedes 5 tickets, and thats when the fight broke out.
    thanks for posting…
    btw guys, i obviously meant “wow oceanup is only posting cuz selenas “BFFS” were involved.”, when i said why is oceanup posting this, its not disney..

    That’s MESSED up.
    It reminds me of the cop that pulled some lady over for speeding even though she was going to see her dying dad, and then the cop said something on the lines of “Well now you’re not going to get to see him”.

    Police are fuck ups.

    what those cops are doing is uncalled for. you cant just beat people with sticks for no reason. and the police had no reason to arrest anyone to begin with. this really amazed me i just cant believe those cops could be so abusive. power is getting to there heads.

  • Kendra


    those cops are totally abusing their power- fucking pieces of shit!

    there was absolutely no need for those asshole cops to start getting violent and the vids were proof of that. hopefully those guys will press charges and this will go to court, those cops need to lose their badges IMMEDIATELY. what fucking psychos!

    This is so fucking insane I am disgusted. I heard about this last night on Travis Clark’s twitter, he is the lead singer of We The Kings, and they never did anything wrong. The guy’s head was fucking bleeding and the police just kept on hitting him. They were completely abusing their powers for no reason. I love all these people and I am so disgusted that this we even happen to these amazing wonderful people. At least Jonathan was calling an ambulance. Some people are just fucking insane and those cops are a very good example of it. I can not stress enough how much we need to stop this from happening again whether it’s to a famous person or just a regular guy or girl but this CAN NOT happen again. I do not have words to describe how I feel right now. I am so incredibly sorry this happened to such amazingly wonderfully nice people who were not doing anything wrong. Words can not describe what happened. I am glad you guys are better now, please feel good again soon. I love you all, you are in my prayers.

    kay, you guys are stupid. the guys really did nothing wrong. the police were on a power trip and out of line. (oceanup, you shouldnt have posted this, because it has nothing to do with disney) the “story” on there wasnt exactly true. the police were yelling at the crew to move their vans, and gave 4 tickets, threatening a fifth, when one of the guys came out trying to get badge numbers.the video is true, the blog isnt. no one is going to stand for it. wonka will not have it. and WTK were tweeting about it all. not that oceanup has any business ruining WTK or any other band on the tour.

    The police ARE corrupted. The day after my mom’s mom died, my mom went to the mall to buy clothes for her funeral. As she was leaving she accidentally forgot to put on her blinker. She was pulled over. Not only could the cop have cared less, he gave her a freaking $250 ticket.

    that makes me soooo pissed off.

    some cops are so fucking crooked it makes me sick.

    i want to see those douschebags get caught.

    fuck those guys.

    and to the person who posted the so called “porn”…

    learn how to write a sex scene. lol.


    I move forward until I am almost sitting on him. I kiss his lips and I can taste myself on his lips.

    Suddenly Justin pushes me until I am lying down on the bed. My heart is going five billion miles per second as I see Justin position himself above my soaking wet pussy.

    “Are you ready?” He asks, his voice gentle yet urgent with want.

    I see the familiar look of love in his eyes and I smile up at him, my heart swelling once again.

    “Yes.” I say and I take hold of one of his hands and grip it tightly. He smiles down at me and then as I count in my head how much I love him, he plunges in, making me grip his hand very tightly and screaming out in pain.

    Justin almost comes out, again, but I look up at him and indicate with a slight nod of my head, not to. He slowly pushes his member into me again.

    I close my eyes tightly and let out a ragged breath. He leans over and kisses my cheek before his warm breath hits my ear, sending pleasure throughout my body.

    “It’s ok. Don’t worry.” Justin begins to say sweet things into my ear and I smile lightly, thanking him silently in my head.

    I slowly adjust to him and I pull back slightly, making Justin shift up. I nod to him and he gently begins to move inside of me. He comes all the way out then thrusts back into me in a manageable speed.

    “OO Justin! That feels so good!” I moan out as I begin to meet his thrusts.

    “Alex! Oh my, Alex!” He moans out loudly. I can hear my heart beat wildly in my chest, and I silently hope he doesn’t hear it.

    He thrusts into me again, faster than before and I cry out in enjoyment.

    “Yes Justin! Faster! Yes!” I moan out to him as we begin to slam into each other, trying to go faster and faster to come to our explosion.


    “Justin-” We both moan out at the same time.

    “Oh my! Alex! Oh my-” Justin groans out in pleasure as he slams into me, his member hitting my pussy over and over again.

    “I love you…” I weakly say, my voice fading from all of my cries of pleasure.

    Justin seems to notice and slows down, much to my displeasure, and looks down at me, concern written all over his face.

    “Are you-” But I cut him off as I kiss his lips and begin to thrust on his member. He moans into my mouth as I lead, for the first time.

    Our thrusts begin to fasten until we are slamming onto each other, the pleasure intense as we thrust and thrust.

    “Justin yes! Oh harder! Harder!” I groan out as he hits the spot where it feels the most enjoyable.

    He meets my commands with his hard member slamming into me.

    I can see stars and I moan out loudly as my nails dig into Justin’s back, making long scratches over the healed ones.

    “Alex! Oh Alex!” Justin moans out as he goes faster and harder.

    I feel myself go at top speed to the top of the mountain, ready to explode at any second, and time.

    “JUSTIN! AHHHHH!” With one final thrust, the flood gates suddenly burst open, sending my juices all over Justin’s penis and bed. My breathing is irregular as the orgasm shakes my whole body.

    “Oh A- ALEX!” Justin suddenly yells out as he cums, his hot liquid spurting deep inside of me.

    Justin’s arms, that had been shaking throughout our love making, suddenly gave out, making him fall on top of my soft breasts. I breathe in his sweet sweaty scent as I hold onto him. He breaths heavily on my neck and goosebumps rise on my body.

    I trail my fingertips over his back and he sighs out in contentment as soon as his breathing returns back to normal.

    “I love you, Alex.” He whispers, his hot breath hitting my sensitive skin.

    I place a kiss on his sweaty forehead. “I love you more than anything on this entire earth.” I say back, my lips tickling his forehead as I speak.

    He leans up until he is holding himself up again and he smiles down at me

    for all those who are saying horrible things about those police officers: SHUT UP! my dad is a philadelphia police officer and you dont even know the things they go through. in this video, they might not have shown more about why it happened. maybe those people were being disrespectful. i love those bands and all but cops have rights. philadelphia alone has lost seven police officers in the last 3 years due to people who have no regards for what they do. they risk their lives every day to protect us. so next time you need help with something and need to call the cops, think about what you have said about them. and don’t call my city filthy and trashy. k.thanks(:

    As usual only a portion of the video was shown – not the first of the confrontation.

    All we see is police officers detaining a subject, and attempting to control the scene.

    In case you don’t understand the law when officer’s tell you to disperse (leave) you are obligated to follow the lawful commands of the officer. You don’t have the right to stay and spout out vulgar comments. You don’t have the right to further engage/enrage the situation.

    The video also doesn’t show what the loud mouth in the yellow shirt does in the doorway – did he physically assault the officer? Could that be the reason why a baton was used to subdue him?

    All this video shows is that the people filming the event and the people being filmed are vulgar people with a propensity for violence – and if they’re in the music industry probably hoping for some free publicity.

    wow … theres a reason alot of people disrespect cops … seems to me the fat ones on bikes are the ones that are always on a power trip …that girl that was taping it should have called the police and got that guys badge number because thats asult she wasnt a threat and she was (although still filming) walking away

    Did you even read the story? This was all because of PARKING TICKETS. They had absolutely no right to physically harm these guys. Yes, parking tickets, sure. They were loading up their trucks in an alley. But to physically BEAT these innocent guys? Here, this blog written by one of the members of Mercy Mercedes might help:

    Our(mercymercedes) van was parked behind the tla in an alley in which we were informed to do. 3bike cops roll up and give us tickets for being parked there, the same place we were instructed to park. The only way out of the narrow alley was to back out our van and trailer. We were in the process of loading gear after the show when the cops come back a second time. I am in the driver seat backing up the rig just as the cops asked. Then I hear a loud popping noise. I ran over a water bottle in the street that I obviously didn’t know was there. The water splashed over the the bike cop. At the time I had to hold the laughter in because it was priceless. these cops just gave us like 4 unecessary tickets and were very rude at doing so. The cop then approaches my window with his soaked clear-leansed bike-cop oakleys in hand and says “do you know how to f*cking drive?” I replied yessir I’m doing exactly what u asked. He then turnes to the other officer and says “write him another ticket and impound their van and trailer.”

    Word of this gets to Trevor aka T-fair, WTKs tour manager. Being the new “baby band” on this tour, T-fair has showed us the ropes and taught us a lot about how these bigger tours work. Already appreciative of him, he came to our aid to work things out with cops for us. He tried to work things out in a calmly manner, when the cops just start threatning him. Trevor calmly says “what are you gonna do I haven’t done anything.” And of coarce I saw the whole thing and never once did do anything threatning to the cops. They then throw him up against our van pretty hard. Then Chris V. WTKs merch guy walks out to see his friend and TM jacked up on our van for nothin. The cops start pushing every one to get back in the venue. And by pushing I mean really ruffing everyone. Chris V is a suuuuper nice dude just so u guys know that. By now everyone is screaming. The cops are cursing at all of us. One cop throws chris v in the venue and shuts the door. Then the doors opens back up. Still at this point and any point in the night no one has threatend a police officer. The officer that slammed the door on everyone runs in saying word for word, “come here you mother f*cker!!” He ran inside with metal baton in hand swinging. After this I heard more than I saw because of the situation. But my bandmates in mercy saw all of this and said that chris v never tried to fight the cop or resist arrest, but the cops repeatedly beat him with the metal rod.

    Seriously people. I’ve never seen police officers so messed up in my life. All this could have been avoided, but because of these cops that provoked everything were the opitome of asshole. Its like they bored and out to find some action. Just like a buch of drunk bro dudes after a game.

    As all this was happening I turn and am being escorted away by another officer. Hurds of fans from the show are watching in awe of the events taking place. I passed two girls bawling their eyes out because they were scared. And amongst the crowd I saw at least 6 kids video taping the whole thing.

    Well there ya have it. That’s my story. I will always remember this for the rest of my life. T-fair didn’t deserve this….Chris V definatly didn’t!

    And to those saying this isnt disney related

    SELENA GOMEZ is BEST FRIENDS with one of the groups involved in this called Forever The Sickest Kids.

    Someone needs to beat those cops and see how they fucking like it.

    yes so.
    its still not disney related
    and shes not “best friends” with them
    shes close with them. sure.

    and anyway
    its still not disney related
    even if they were “best friends”

    Some police man are just ridiculous.
    You’re right. Police just look DOWN upon teens/young adults. THIS is where our tax money is going to ?! They’re sure not doing a good job … They’re actually causing more controversy than solving it …

  • hannahiscrazyy

    normally i’m a bit agro when you post about the bands that i love, but in this case, THANK YOU.
    we need to spread awareness about this horrible situation that occurred last night. these guys didn’t deserve this and it’s absolutely horrible.

    Just so you know, don’t accuse people of anything before you know what happened. Read all the stories about it. Chris didn’t do anything to instigate his beating, and he is the nicest most caring person I have ever met in my entire life.

    Just because they are cops doesn’t mean they don’t do irrational and totally unacceptable things. None of them did anything at a level for this to happen. Language and a verbal issue is no reason for anyone to be beat. This is called battery and abuse of power. This is not the first time that something like this has happened at that same venue, with those same exact cops.

    Just so you know the story, Mercy Mercedes was being issued tickets for where their van was parked, so in the process of them moving the cop came up to their window and started screaming “what the fuck is wrong with you? do you know how to fucking drive?” Trevor came outside to try and CALMLY solve the issue. The other cops scream at him to “get the fuck back inside” so he goes back, tries to open the door and is then pushed inside, arrested, and drug outside. Obviously they had no grounds for his arrest so Chris wanted their badge numbers so he could file a complaint. They would not give him their badge numbers so he got upset, as anyone would – but through this entire time he was compliant with their wishes. This is when the cop hits him and breaks his head open on glass. They continue to beat him while he is on the ground, just lying there, helpless. Please tell me how this is just “free publicity”.

    Get your facts straight before you decide to be ignorant and assume that everyone in the music business are assholes and that cops are all ~great.

  • emily ford

    Cops suck….end of story. But this is nothing to fucking cry about. Let’s all relax. This wasn’t even that bad. I’ve seen WAY worse cop videos. They abuse their power. It’s pathetic. But, I’m lovin’ the bike helmets. Cute boys, real cute =) And just so everyone knows, it has nothing to do with Philly, this could have been any city. Cops are gheyyyyyyyyy.

  • aliceinwonderland

    no one deserves to get beat up.

  • Kasi

    Everyone is blaming this on the cops and while I do agree that the amount force used to detain him was uncalled for you can clearly see Chris V PUSH the police officer. The officer reacted the way he thought was appropriate. The moment Chris hit the ground and cracked his head open on the glass bottle they should have stopped. When they didn’t is where this became excessive and a problem.

    An officer also laying his hands on and damaging the property of an innocent bystander was uncalled for as well. The girls recording this were not in the way of detaining anyone involved and the officers had no right to try and inflict harm on them.

    I am completely surprised that none of the local news stations reported on this seeing as this is the second case of police brutality in the past year caught on tape in the city. But it is being investigated by the police department and if a complaint is filed by any of the guys assaulted there will be an Internal Affairs Investigation.

    people who abuse power like that are fucking sick.
    seriously. that was uncalled for.
    and people need to realize that not all people who are there to help you are truly there to help you.
    so many stories like this get bypassed and people go along with the same impressions.
    this is fucked up.

    This is so fucking messed up.

    and it was because it was past philly curfew. even still, it’s fucking ridiculous. you don’t beat people up because of a city curfew when they’re trying to get their stuff together. you don’t beat people up for any reason. it’s uncalled for.
