NYPD Cops Investigated For Allegedly Pistol-Whipping Unarmed Teen (VIDEO)
Two New York City police officers were under criminal investigation for allegedly beating an unarmed 16-year-old who was raising his hands in a show of surrender, the news website DNAinfo New York reported on Tuesday.
The website's investigative unit, "On The Inside," obtained surveillance footage that it said showed the Aug. 29 incident in Brooklyn.
In the footage, two officers were seen running up to a teenager, who was identified by DNAinfo as Kahreem Tribble. The teen, reportedly suspected of possessing marijuana, stopped running and was punched in the face by one of the officers, according to DNAinfo. Tribble then raised his hands and the second officer used his gun to allegedly clock Tribble in the face, according to the website.
