Philadelphia, PA —
A disturbing video was uploaded to Facebook showing a Philadelphia SEPTA police officer slam a handcuffed man to the concrete. The reason for the cop slamming down the non-violent man was that he was not obeying his command to sit.
As the video begins, the officer is threatening the man filming the interaction with arrest. He then turns his attention back to the man in handcuffs.
Take a good look at Officer Spence, 44 (left) he’s one of two charged in connection with a brutal beating of a teen captured on video.
Today Anthony Spencer walked out of jail pending his trial along with a fellow officer, Spence is facing assault and misconduct in what many say those charges are way to minor, the mere fact that a teen was assaulted repeatedly and deliberately… is outrageous.
In one of the worst videos I have ever seen, The Baltimore Sun has reported – schools officials are “vigorously” investigating a cellphone video that appears to show a uniformed officer slapping a young man.
When an officer pulls you over, should there be a good reason before or probable cause afterwards?
Sounds confusing to me.
This is where many citizens across the country become concerned with an officer’s actions.
Many of our viewers are already voicing their opinions on this case and are outraged as to what they just heard in testimony and agree with the defendant, citing they may take their issues to court and possibly file suit.
In an incident that occurred almost a year ago where an officer was cleared in a fatal shooting of James Barker , has now sparked a new investigation.
A many of times viewers may get distracted by what they would like to see and hear as opposed to what they don’t see but hear.
I have watched this video numerous times and it is still unclear to me as to whether the sounds heard in the back ground are true (Un-edited) and or false.
I also can’t determine if the officer whom was leaning over the alleged victim ‘ James Barker ‘ was handcuffing him afterwards being shot.
While so many are quick to say ” Man shot in the back while handcuffed ” I prefer to wait until more viable evidence is made available, The only thing that disturbed me as a viewer but is (unconfirmed) is the alleged sounds that were heard during the video if in fact they are gun shots.
If this video was manipulated in anyway and or edited deliberately ‘ that should be a first priority in the investigation. ‘
Chicago has agreed to pay $875,000 to Cassandra Feuerstein who accused a police officer “Michael Hart” of using excessive force after an arrest.
A video appears to show officer Michael Hart with the Skokie Police, shoving Feuerstein into a cell with her head striking a concrete bench type seat, After the brutal encounter She discovered that she had suffered serious injuries, According to sources.
Hart resigned after the incident which occurred in 2013, Hart also plead guilty to official misconduct.
This is just one of many examples in police facing scrutiny across America.
