After all that has been happening with the police, and especially in New York with the choking death of Eric Garner, one would expect the NYPD officers to be more judicious in their work. However, a plainclothes police officer has been caught on camera punching one of two teenagers who were already in handcuffs during a street arrest.
The video, uploaded to YouTube last Monday, shows three officers restraining the teenager. Suddenly, a plainclothes officer hurls himself onto the suspect, punching him twice in the back.
SarahDNY who uploaded the video, titled Black Kids Matter, added this description;
Today, a little after 4 pm I was walking to the post office on the Lower East Side in Manhattan. I witnessed these kids being beaten and handcuffed. A woman was yelling that they were only 12. They had supposedly knocked down a schoolmate. When the victim was questioned he said that it wasn't them. The kids were still taken away. 12. Years. Old.
