Video: Brooklyn Cops Pistol-Whip Kid After He's Down

Warning: The video is graphic and disturbing. The kid's hands were in the air.

You cannot watch this video and find any excuse for these cops. Even after his hands were in the air, they hit him. After he was on the ground, the kid took a full punch right in the head.

DNAInfo New York:

Two NYPD officers are under criminal investigation after punching and using a gun to bash a 16-year-old suspect in the face despite the teen raising his hands to surrender, according to a video obtained by DNAinfo New York.

The surveillance footage obtained exclusively by “On The Inside" shows the two officers catch up to marijuana suspect Kahreem Tribble after a brief chase in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

As the teen stops running, one officer throws a punch at his face. Then, as the suspect raises his hands, the other officer hits him with his gun.

Tribble was arrested for possessing 17 small bags of marijuana and disorderly conduct on Aug. 29. At his arraignment, he pleaded guilty to a violation and was released with cracked teeth and bruises.

The officers from the 79th Precinct are now targets of a criminal investigation conducted by the NYPD’s Internal Affairs Bureau and Brooklyn District Attorney Kenneth Thompson.

Criminal investigation indeed. These guys ought to be arrested for assault and battery.
