Arizona Cop Brutally Attacks Black Teen With No Arms Or Legs For Knocking Over Trash Can
A disturbing video has surfaced showing the moment a Pima County deputy brutally attacking a 15-year-old quadruple amputee in Arizona. The child has no arms and legs and he has been arrested and charged along with his 16-year-old friend who recorded the horrific video.
The incident happened in September while the 15-year-old was living in a group home,local news outlet KOLD reported. The teen reportedly got upset with a staff member and knocked over a garbage can, and the police were called.
The eight-minute video shows the unidentified cop screaming and cursing at the child and eventually wrestling him to the floor.
Joel Feinman, the Pima County Public Defender, condemned the officers involved.
“Men with badges should not be acting this way,” he said. “Men and women who do act this way should not have badges and guns.”
Social media has been outraged by the story.
“Man with no arms or legs gets the police called on him for KICKING over a trash can,” one person tweeted.
Another user said, “Is no one off-limits? This deputy would have got jumped for this now we just accept it. Cops are literally murdering black citizens in cold blood, they are beating toddlers up, wheelchair-bound citizens, Auschwitz survivors, punching pregnant women and we are just taking it. Why?”
One comment called for the employee who called the police to lose his or her job.
“Give the details of the worker,” the comment said. “They need to be fired. No more working with teens. Or anyone in need of help. Go work at McDonald’s.”
The video is deeply disturbing and we can only hope the police officer will be held accountable.
