Support your NYPD. The City Council, Borough Presidents and the Mayor quickly jump into campaign mode and never acknowledge the behavior of the citizens NYC Finest have to patrol. They have no support from City Officials and are being put in danger. Politicians are acting just like the teens in this video difference is they wear suits.
That Pig needs to be Arrested. Or Citizen need to take real Action on cops who break the law
The cops have to use force when dealing with these people. They cause most of the violent crimes in the city.
Why do people resist arrest?
dumb azz cop think he in a bar brawl …. fool you are on duty! A disgrace to the uniform.
When did Police become so much like cowards.. to go over the line on teenagers really.. this is the job you signed up for learn 2 act right… danger my ass this is what you signed up for
Lucky no one got shot.
He should've punched the camera man if anything, so annoying repeating the same things. Go ahead and film, stop pretending you're some civil rights lawyer.
Most cops are pussies, then they get on the force and they become bigger pussies. Fuck the police!
That happens because nypd hires the worst people to become officers usually the ones who can get a normal regular decent job
police is really out there, always arresting people for no reason.
Cop punches resisting teens- its a problemTeen punches cop- no one cares
Pretty much the ignorant world of democrats we live in
I'm happy one of the teens fought back with the officer. The teen held his own against an adult.
To everyone taking up for this cop, you know Nothing! This cop went wild and his actions were unwarranted and out of control. He acted like he was on drugs. Ridiculous and no excuse!
Arrest that RACIST COP now…
Eric Adams just trying to run for mayor he’s a loser
Police officer is totally out of hand cause he pinched both teens unprovoked!
“I didn’t do nothing!” lol. Says this as he punches cop.
10 years minimum in Attica. Good riddance, brown!
13 do 50. There should be no question as to why police use force in these situations. Anyone defending these “teens” needs their head examined.
To all the dumb white liberals:
Wait until your own children are the victims of these “teens”, and you have no recourse left. Just remember all the times you called the cops racists, and whined about the poor black youth who are victims of “police brutality”(cops doing their job).
You’ve brought this on yourselves.
