NYPD Knocks Out Teen Over Marijuana Suspicion

The NY Daily News obtained this video of a Brooklyn teen being abused by an NYPD officer because the cop thought he was smoking marijuana.


The Daily News reports that the officer stopped 17-year-old Marcel Hamer on June 4 in Clinton Hill on suspicion of smoking weed. The video begins showing Marcel Hamer lying on his back, shouting in pain with the cop’s left foot planted on Hamer’s stomach. He then pleads repeatedly with the cop, saying he wasn’t smoking marijuana, but a cigarette.

The knockout strike isn’t caught on video but the sound of a punch can be heard in the recording.

“Turn around,” he instructs the seemingly unresponsive teen. Hamer’s apparently limp arm is seen falling onto the pavement as the cop tries to cuff him.
