Video: Baltimore Police Officer Slaps and Kicks 16-Year-Old Student

Screen Shot 2016-03-03 at 7.15.56 PM The videotape below has shocked many people both inside and outside of Baltimore. A Baltimore school police officer is shown slapping and kicking a teenage youth while a second officer watches. The video raises the suitability of either officer to serve in the department as well as the question of potential criminal charges of assault.

The two officers responded to REACH Partnership School after a report of two “intruders.” The officers say that they determined that the two were not students by consulting with school administrators, who could not identify them. However, the parents of the child being beaten says that he is in fact a student at the school. The parents went to the school to speak with the Principal James Gresham but was told that he was busy despite waiting to see him.

Here is the videotape:

I cannot imagine the defense that could be raised by either of these officers. The teenager is not threatening the officer or resisting at the time of the assault. That would seem an easy matter for termination and possible criminal charges.

The other officer does nothing. The key for that second officer is to confirm whether she immediately informed her supervisors or sought aid for the student. She should still have intervened but the failure to act after the assault should be enough to terminate her employment.

What do you think?

    Nice try! Good poem! You have talent! BUT, I already done this, back on July 14, 2013:

    A Post-Trayvon Goodnight Prayer
    A Short Poem by Squeeky Fromm

    Now I lay me down to sleep,
    I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
    And if my liberal friends get mugged,
    Please let it be a young Black thug!
    So when they get a busted snout,
    And all their brains are running out,
    They’ll gently go to those good nights
    As Champions of Civil Rights!

    I know what comes next: a Black Irish poem. Before I go to sleep. It is soooo appropriate:

    Now I lay me down to sleep
    In Ireland amongst the sheep.
    If I should die here in the wool
    No more I’ll hear of Squeeky’s bull.

    Blah, blah, blah, name calling, blah, blah, blah, that’s racissss, blah, blah, blah, we are sooo morally superior to you. . .blah, blah, blah, etc.

    That’s all you do. That’s all most liberals do, because they really can’t face the reality of what they have helped do to the black community. That’s why you all have to reach back 60 years, or even 150 years back in time to slavery, and rant and raise heck, . . . and then just try to tippy-toe and sneak past the last 50 or so years of real life in black America.

    Blacks are nothing but dildos to white liberals – – – a tool to make them feel good about themselves.

    You fit right in with the times of the ‘white man’s burden’ and the ‘great game’; born a century or two too late, out of time.

  5. Soooooooo, Issac, what next? maybe Squeeky can do some more to help those poor black folk who’ve been harmed so much by them dam leebruls by volunteering to slap all those poor black folk upside the head. Just like this cop did. After all, they probably deserve it. Slap ’em ’til she’s slap-happy. That’ll do the trick. I know I’d rather be slapped upside the head than be able to vote.

    Hey, I have two speeds—Intense and Intenser. FWIW, you haven’t really answered anything. You keep living back there in the Days of Jim Crow, and Klan Rallies, and it’s like you old white liberals have been in stasis for 6o years or something. Sitting around in your rocking chairs and dreaming of being Freedom Riders, smoking dope, and having sex with hippie chicks in the back seat of your Nash Rambler or something.

    You call my stuff “racisss”, but it’s nothing but the truth. It’s reality, It ain’t your grandfathers black neighborhood, anymore. And what about my plan for you white liberals to go move to the hood and help end all that “apartheid”??? I think that would be a very noble thing for you too do. Put YOU and YOUR kids lives where your mouth is!
