[su_right_ad]New York Police Department’s internal affairs is investigating this incident.

“Hey! Hey! Hey!” one woman is heard yelling. “Stop it! Get off of him!”Another woman can be heard identifying herself as a lawyer and saying the suspect is only 12 years old.

“I can’t believe he just did that after everything that’s happened,” she said, an apparent reference to the Eric Garner case and other incidents captured on video.

The NYPD said Internal Affairs is investigating the incident. Police also said two suspects, including the one struck, were arrested for assaulting another person with a cane.

    There really needs to be mandatory community service for cops. These people are just too out of touch with the community. These officers need to spend more time at the food banks and shelters helping people. Time spent at the rec centers getting to know the people in the community would help too. Something has to be done to personally connect the officers to the community they are policing.

    All of those people just standing around doing nothing. The police know they can do whatever they want and get away with it. They should’ve had their asses collectively kicked for treating those kids like that, considering what that city has been through lately.

    Did any of you look at the Youtube comments on that Video? Almost every comment was in support of the cops.

    I guess they think that cops should be judge, jury and executioner and none of them believe in the rule of law.

    yea, criminals are gross but it is not the job of cops to beat up, strangle, or execute them on the street, their job is only to catch them and bring them before the judge, how hard is that for people to understand?
