There’s a special place for cops like this…
Did we mention how much we dislike the police? Not that it’s needed but here’s another example of why. According to an ABC13 report, a Harris County police officer was caught on camera brutally and repeatedly punching a teenage boy at a gas station. The boy, Carlos, was riding an ATV with a couple of his friends and stopped to get gas when they were accosted by a pig who clearly had chosen violence before he even spoke to the minor. A GoPro camera that was mounted on the 4-wheeler captured the entire exchange.
Upon approaching Carlos the unnamed cowardly cop demanded his ID then quickly told him to put his hands behind his back for arrest. When Carlos attempted to pull away from Lt. Bacon Bits, the oinking officer said this:
“Don’t run from me boy, I will beat your (expletive) right here,” said the deputy, who is significantly larger than Carlos. “Turn around and put your hands behind your back before I beat the (expletive) out of you. Don’t be (expletive) stupid!”
Don’t take our word for it. Watch the video for yourself.
16-year-old Carlos said he “panicked a little” when the officer asked him for his ID.
“He just looked at my ID for like two seconds and said to put my hands behind my back,” the teen told ABC13. “That’s when I panicked a little and pulled away from him and he grabbed me.”
Reports noted that the officer believed to have had another encounter with Carlos where he allegedly ran away from him, but the young teen said he’d never seen the officer before and that he has never had previous run-ins with the law. Although Carlos and his friends knew their ATVs weren’t road compliant, Carlos added that he felt the officer handled the situation poorly.
“I just don’t think I should be treated in that manner for riding on the street,” said Carlos. “A lot of 16-year-olds got ATVs … (they) want to have fun with their friends.”
Lt. Piggly Wiggly has been addressed by his superiors and demoted to desk duty while they conduct an Internal Affairs investigation.
We don’t know for sure but we’d be willing to bet LOTS of money that this cop probably loves the taste of racist epithets in his mouth.
