A 5-year-old boy was handcuffed and threatened with being beaten up violently by two police officers recently.
The shocking incident took place in Maryland, where a terrified young child was detained by cops while being handcuffed simultaneously. And just in case that wasn’t enough, authorities went as far as threatening him too, in case he chose to wander outside of his school.
According to local media outlets, the harrowing details of the incident came into the spotlight thanks to the jaw-dropping bodycam footage of the officers involved.
In the appalling clip, viewers got a chance to see two Montgomery Country officers behave in the most violent manner with a 5-year-old child. Here, the youngster appears intimidated by the two cops, right after he is taken into custody towards a school building, located in Maryland.
One cop puts the terror-stricken child, wearing handcuffs, on a chair. And when the child begins to cry out loud, screaming in absolute hysterical terror, a loud voice appears in the background. “Shut that noise up! Shut that noise up!”
In the same way, viewers get a glimpse of another officer who begins to yell at the handcuffed child, who sobs giant crocodile tears in fear. The officer has her face, right against the scared child.
As the petrified child continues to cry and scream, the officer yells, “Oh my God, I would beat him so bad. You don’t embarrass me like that in school.”
The shocking footage made the air on March 27th, leaving so many viewers stunned beyond belief. It literally horrified the community with many calling out the police department to find the respective individuals and fire them from their duties immediately.
One member from the Montgomery County Council blasted out at the very disturbing scenes, referring to the footage in a tweet. Here, he mentioned how the officers need to be fired so that the community can continue with its efforts of maintaining public safety.
