An officer from the North Carolina’s deputy working middle school violently beats up a 12-year-old boy. The officer suddenly picks up the boy and smashes him on the ground, then he repeats the same thing and grabs him by the shirt and walks away. This incident was caught on cam and parents, school staff, and the police were shocked when they saw the video clip.
The police officer was reportedly on administrative leave after the video first came out last week. The incident took place in Vance County Middle school, which is about 45 miles north of Raleigh. The incident was caught on the surveillance camera of the school, and in the footage, the deputy can be seen brutally throwing the 12-year-old on the ground and mercilessly dragging the child with him in the corridor.
At the beginning of the video, the police officer and the child are normally walking side-by-side, and suddenly the officer picked up the child flips him over upside down and throws him on the ground. Then the officer bends down to pick up the child, only to throw him on the ground for the second time head-first. Later on, the officer drags the child by his shirt, and the video clip ends there.
As of now, no charges have been pressed against the officer by the authorities, and the child’s name is not mentioned. Sheriff Curtis Brame said, ” We went over, and when we first saw the video, we were stunned, we were shocked.”
The school authorities also gave a statement and said, ” We are aware of the incident that occurred at Vance County Middle School involving a school resource officer. We are deeply concerned by the action that took place.”
The victim’s father said that the boy was recovering at home. The child had a bump on his head but was not taken to a hospital.
