In the U.S., another video of police violence against civilians has been added. Footage emerged today showing two officers from the Montgomery County Police Department in Maryland assaulting and insulting a 5-year-old boy.
The video player is taken from wusa9.com.
In the incident in the US state of Maryland, it was learned that the policemen who caught a child who had escaped from the school had long taunted the boy, put him in a squad car and brought him back to school, and the policemen who could not stand the crying of the child who was taken to the principal’s office continued to threaten the child and handcuffed him.
Mother Shanta Grant, who said her child was depressed after the incident, complained about the police and continued her duties despite the matter being brought to justice.
The school board, which watched a 50-minute video recording of police brutality, described the video as ‘extremely difficult to watch’, adding that adults had no reason to talk or threaten a child in this way. After footage of the incident emerged, about 500 people signed a letter calling for the dismissal of the police officers involved and a review of procedures for educational institutions.
In the 50-minute video released Friday by the Montgomery County Police Department in Maryland, officers tell the 5-year-old, ‘Oh my God, I beat you so bad. You don’t embarrass me like that at school. This handcuff is for people who don’t want to listen to us and don’t know how to behave,’ lawyers representing the family said in a statement, adding that they believed the boy was being treated as a notorious criminal and expected justice and fair compensation for the trauma suffered by little Grant.
