A seventeen year-old was knocked unconscious by NYPD officers, who subsequently barked orders at him, dragged his body across the road, and placed him in handcuffs… all because the cops mistakenly thought he had marijuana.
Thank you Daily News
Marcel Hamer, 17, was punched out June 4, 2014 as he pleaded with the officer that he was smoking a tobacco cigarette, not marijuana. ‘You wanna get fucked up?’ the cop asks before dropping the hammer. The officer has since been suspended in the latest viral video black eye for the NYPD.
A video showing an NYPD officer apparently knocking out a Brooklyn teen surfaced on Wednesday — the same day footage of another cop allegedly stealing more than $1,000 from a Brooklyn construction worker went viral.
The officer stopped 17-year-old Marcel Hamer on June 4 in Clinton Hill on suspicion of smoking marijuana, police said.
The video begins showing Marcel Hamer lying on his back, shouting in pain with the cop’s left foot planted on Hamer’s stomach. He then pleads repeatedly with the cop, saying he wasn’t smoking marijuana.

Hopefully the new trend will continue and these cops will do time for their criminal acts.
New trend?? One of these cops got arrested? I missed that.

Where at friend? I’m missing out on this. Lol
Prior to this year, I hadn’t heard of any police being fired for excessive use of force, much less charged and convicted.
Thanks. I’d still be surprised of these cops have to serve much of any of their sentences, but we’ll find out.
A cop who steals money… that’s true. My sister’s co-worker was pulled over (unfortunately for DUI ) after 2 beers at a sports bar . It was his birthday and the occassion was his treat…. anyway, he had $800 in his wallet. he had to stay a few hours at the polce station… he was released that morning, and when he got back his stuff, the wallet was there, but no $800.
And then on top of that I’m sure that slapped all kinds of fines on him, hoping he will never be able to fully pay them, and what’s more that $800 certainly could have helped go towards paying that. I mean, the system already takes enough money from poorer people with ridiculous fines for jaywalking and speeding tickets, then to jack whatever else they can find from peoples’ wallets that they need just to not be completely ran over by the system.
