This video isn’t for the faint of heart. In what starts out to be quite a raucous video where high school students are loud, obnoxious and acting chaotic, we see two cops trying to subdue one particular student. Usually once the student or whoever is being subdued, the cop shouldn’t have to go any further. But in this case a larger cop uses a variation of a submission and severely injured the student they had a hold of.
Although it’s not clear as to why the student is being brought down, near the end of the short video we see a female cop and a male cop bringing down a black high school student. The female cop seemed to have brought down the student. But then what we see is the male cop get a hold of his left arm.
The cop did not have complete control of the student, but the student was already on the ground, stomach down. You can see him clearly taking his left arm and twisting it towards his back. In some ways it also looks like a kimura from Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.
But unlike a MMA fight or submission grappling event, there was no tap. The cop went too far and you can hear the student’s shoulder snap in the gnarliest of ways. It’s loud and clearly happened as you can start to hear the student moaning and asking the cop not to touch him anymore. The cop seems to deny what he had done and is just a grotesque way to handle things.
Everything is captured in the video and whoever this cop is needs to be reprimanded severely.
Comments are screaming “Police brutality” and that they “wish cops like this could get insta Karma and get their arm broken.” Although wishing violence and revenge on others isn’t the way to go, sometimes we really wish that some of these cops would get “theirs.”
