It’s proper NYPD procedure to assault teenagers

I have to sometimes think that my brain is wired differently than the average person or maybe I was dropped on my head as a kid because no matter how hard I try after watching a video like this I can not comprehend how the majority of Americans can justify the police arresting and assaulting a young adult for simply talking.

Comments like

  • This kid got what he deserved. Don’t mouth off to cops moron.
  • I’ve found that if you treat someone with respect (even cops) they’ll treat you the same. This kid probably was a pain in the ass to his teachers in High School as well.
  • But anyway, kid was a punk and thought he was tough shit and didn’t think the 5.0 would touch him. He learned his lesson.

The fathers’ comment — “I would like to beat the crap out of the officer who did this to my son” — is a very common response. An eye for an eye or equal justice. The state justifies this as if you take a life we will take yours with the death penalty. While he is probably speaking with emotion, this approach is highly un-advisable. If he were to take on the officer and deliver the same punishment that the officer gave to his son, more police would be called resulting in his arrest with trumped up charges. If he had enough people to stand up and defend against the department they would call neighboring departments for backup. If everyone held their ground, federal agencies and the National Guard would be called in most likely resulting in a small civil war, for nothing more than making sure that the officer is held accountable for their illegal actions.

His other option is to try and do it legally by filing a complaint. Meaning the offending officers will not be arrested. They will be tried in house by fellow police officers. Very little information will be made available to the public. In a worst case scenario the cops will receive a paid vacation/suspension. While if it was you or I would be looking at assault, kidnapping, disturbing the peace, and damaging private property.

Since there really is nothing that can be done to have these officers held accountable for their action my only suggestion to you is always have your camera ready no matter how insignificant you may think the incident may be. A well trained cop should be able to pull his firearm and start shooting in less than 2 seconds, so keep your cameras rolling. Let’s hold them accountable with video evidence that is impossible to dispute.
