An officer has been suspended for beating a young boy and arresting him.
Footage of the New York Police Department officer beating up a 16-year-old boy during a confrontation was released just recently, and the officer who was punching the young boy was suspended.
According to Complex Magazine, the three boys were having an argument when they were arrested for possession of weapons and the 16-year-old boy being attacked via YouTube.
Sources told the Post that the teenagers were involved in an “ongoing dispute” with the victim. The two 16-year-olds were charged with weapons possession, resisting arrest, gang assault, and obstruction of justice, while the 17-year-old faces charges for gang assault.
The NYPD Internal Affairs Bureau is still investigating the situation.
