OTHER DRUGS IN HIS SYSTEM. HIS BLOOD ALCOHOL CONTENT WAS DOUBLE THE LEGAL LIMIT IN THE U.S. THIS AFTERNOON WE HEAR FROM A COUPLE TEENS INVOLVED IN A FIGHT. THEY WILL BE CALLING FOR POLICE OFFICER INVOLVED TO BE PLACED ON MODIFIED DUTY. BUT THE NYPD SAYS THERE’S MORE TO IT. Reporter: AND INVESTIGATION UNDERWAY INTO THIS VIDEO AND WHAT LED UP TO WHAT WE SEE HERE ALONG WITH THE ACTIONS OF A GROUP OF TEENS AND POLICE. DURING THE CHAOS, IT APPEARS AN NYPD OFFICER PUNCHES THE TEEN AND SECONDS LATER SWINGS TOWARD ANOTHER WHO FIGHTS BACK. TO ME HE WENT BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY. THEY ARE NOT IN A BOXING MATCH. WHEN I SAW ON THAT VIDEO IS, CLEARLY, OUTSIDE OF ANY TRAINING THAT I EVER RECEIVED IN THE POLICE DEPARTMENT. THE BROOKLYN PRESIDENT AND FORMER POLICE OFFICER ERIC ADAMS FEELS THAT ONE OFFICER APPEARS TO HAVE ESCALATED THE MATTER. THE NYPD SAYS THERE IS A VIEW BUT THE VIDEO DOES NOT TELL THE WHOLE STORY. ACCORDING TO POLICE, FRIDAY AFTERNOON OFFICERS RESPONDED TO A FIGHT BETWEEN TWO LARGE GROUPS OF PEOPLE WHICH SPILLED INTO THE J STREET METRO STATION. SEVERAL TEENS ALLEGEDLY CONTINUE TO FIGHT AND RESIST ARREST. FIVE PEOPLE WERE ARRESTED. ALL 18 YEARS OLD AND YOUNGER AND CHARGES RANGE FROM RESISTING ARREST TO ASSAULT ON A POLICE OFFICER. YOU NOTICE ONE OF THE GUYS THERE, ONE OF THE MEN PUNCHES THE POLICE OFFICER BUT WHAT IS HE SUPPOSED SUPPOSED TO DO, TAKE THE PUNCH? YOU ARE A POLICE OFFICER, YOU SHOULDN’T HIT A TEEN. TO ME IT SEEMS AS IF THIS GUY WAS NOT GOING TO STOP HITTING ANYBODY. OF COURSE, THE COP HAD TO PUNCH BACK. THE CONVERSATION WILL CONTINUE HERE AT A NEWS CONFERENCE AT 2:00 P.M. WHERE THE PRESIDENT SAYS HE WILL JUMP BE JOINED BY SOME OF THE TEENS INVOLVED.

  1. If you get punched, you punch back, period. To hell with these dumb liberals that wanna say “the officer should know better.” That teen wants to act like a grown man then he should get treated like one.

  2. Cop punches resisting teens- its a problem
    Teen punches cop- no one cares

    Pretty much the ignorant world of democrats we live in

  3. Typical democrats rushing to defend bunch of teens who terrorize the nyc subway…these politicians were no where to be found when innocent ppl got pushed on trains and tracks. SMFH

  4. punching someone that did nothing is uncalled 4…..I thought that if ur punched by someone 4 nothing u have the right 2 defend urself guess that doesn't include law inforcement—–their rules and their rules 4 u eh

  5. What the hell else is new? It is always beating up, or murdering civilians. They need to be punished. No excuses!

  6. "It doesn't tell the WHOLE STORY".. WHITE PEOPLE translation: I'm still coming up with reasons to JUSTIFY more POLICE BRUTALITY…"But I am not RACIST"…

  7. The young teen was on his way to bible study after volunteering at the local animal shelter when he was acosted by the Po lice.

  8. If you see the full video , the last kid to get punched was nowhere near this whole incident. Not near any of the other two teens to get crazy with nypd. That officer gets up and does not even tell him to stop or anything just punched the teen right in the face. Sorry I dont agree with swinging at a nypd officer however a cop should not swing on a teen like this or on anyone in that matter who is just walking by. It does seem like he mistaken the teen for the camera man who kept yelling " I know my rights " . But still straight out punching a person with out knowing why is not a way a cop should react . If all these officers can not control a scene with teens , maybe some more training.

  9. "City official" should try policing "ghetto yoof," then tell the rest of us how much they enjoy having people throwing bottles of water on them for their troubles. That, or call Colin Kapernick the next time someone breaks into their home and NOT the NYPD. See how long it takes the social justice warrior to crack the case.

  10. With everything going on these days the New York City Police Department should be trained in the Art of Aikido. Rather than using Force to resolve the conflicts

  11. No change in status???!!! Wtf fire that piece of shit!!!! Ny is crazy, these cops already got training from the previous killings and still do this BS….to KIDS. Tf

  12. That cop started fighting with them, that white hoodie teen would’ve knocked him out if it wasn’t for the other cops

  13. Not justifying the police punching teens but these are the type of results or worst you are going to get when a bunch of kids are altogether! Bunch of kids usually smells trouble in a public place and police will gravitate to.

  14. If any cop randomly just stops me and start swinging on me cuz they feeling brolic I'm swinging back too fuck that badge and your blue line .

  15. These kids today have no respect period and I’m sure there is more footage missing from the video. People need to stop being quick to judge the police officers because they too have to protect themselves. And these kids today be out of line.
