Video: NYPD Officers Beating Child

As the year is ending, the more people are getting victimized by police officers. In NYC, footage of a 16-year-old boy getting physically attacked by officers of the New York Police Department was posted on YouTube just today.

The video shows three officers holding the child while an officer dressed in civilian clothing was shown attacking the child. In addition, the young boy and his friends are asking why they are being arrested, while a bystander is making sure she makes a complaint about the attack against the young male.

This was a quote made via Global Grind:

“According to an actress who uploaded the video to Facebook, Sarah Doneghy, the two were approached by police for allegedly pushing down a classmate. In the video, the boys are held against two separate vehicles for several minutes before they’re put in the cars in handcuffs. ‘This is not a war, this is a 12-year-old kid,’ said one woman who identified herself as a lawyer. “They’re animals right?'”

The NYPD’s Internal Affairs Bureau is currently investigating the situation.

WARNING: Viewer disrection is advised and the video does contain graphic material.
