Baltimore School Cop Filmed Slapping Student Through Face, Kicking Him

Locals are outraged after video surfaced showing a Baltimore City schools police officer slapping a student through the face, cussing him out, and then kicking him.

Filmed at Reach Partnership High School by another student on his cellphone, the short clip does not show the events proceeding the assault, but the unidentified boy can be seen standing up against a wall.

The footage then proceeds to show the school cop – who has also not been identified – start smacking the presumably teenaged student repeatedly in the face and head.

“Fuck you!” the officers says while delivering the first hard slap.

“Go home then!” he says as he delivers a second more powerful smack to the left side of the student’s face.

“Get the fuck outta here!” he finally says while delivering a third slap, which doesn’t completely connect because the student ducks.

For good measure, the school cop then kicks the boy in the back as he is walking away.

Watch the raw footage:

As a result of the incident, the head of the Baltimore school police force is now on administrative leave and two of his officers have resigned. In addition, the unidentified officer involved has been reassigned to a position away from the school.

Baltimore Schools spokeswoman Edie House Foster confirmed on Wednesday that officials are “vigorously” investigating the case, but she did not say why the two officers not involved in the assault were placed on leave.

Foster said the video was filmed on Tuesday at the school in East Baltimore and was then posted to Facebook. The spokeswoman called the officer’s behavior “unacceptable and appalling.”

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake also called what occurred in the video, “appalling,” and asserted that the cop’s actions could further harm the relationship between police and a community already resentful towards officer misconduct.

“The behavior that was demonstrated on the video, you never want to see anyone treated like that,” Rawlings-Blake said. “Anytime there is a law enforcement officer with that level of authority that seems to be abusing that authority, it impacts all of us across the country.”

Update: School officials say that the boy in the video is not a student at Reach Partnership and asserted that he did not have permission to be on the property.

“No, this is not a student at REACH,” one official said. “[He’s] someone who was apparently on the property and did not have permission to be on the property.”

A Fraternal Order of Police lawyer representing the offending officer said the boy became belligerent when he was asked to leave the property. He offered few details but asserted that the video doesn’t show the entire story of what transpired.

A lawyer for the boy however, said that the teen is in fact a student at the school and claimed that he is in possession of school records that prove it.

According to the lawyer, the cops most likely made a mistake identifying the student, which he said is 16-years-old. He called the incident an “unprovoked assault” that resulted in facial injuries for the teen.
