Video: NYPD Officers Brutally Beat Teen Drug Suspect Jatiek Reed

Four New York Police Department officers have been pulled from street duty after video of them brutally beating a teenage drug suspect surfaced online.

According to the New York Times, the four NYPD cops have been stripped of their guns and badges and placed on special duty after the discovery of the video.

The officers, stationed in the 42 Precinct in the Bronx, are seen viciously beating 19-year-old Jatiek Reed. They wrestled him to the sidewalk, then repeatedly struck him with their batons and kicked him while he was down. The beating continues for about 20 seconds. One of the officers threatens the person filming the beating with a canister of pepper spray.

According to police, Reed was seen throwing a bag of crack on the ground. When officers approached him, he resisted and punched one of them in the nose and head-butted him in the cheek. That officer required stitches for his injuries.

Schuan Reed, Jatiek’s mother, told New York 1 that her son “has staples in his head, he has staples in his arm, his eyes were black, his whole entire back is black, blue, purple.”

When Reed’s family and friends went to the 42nd Precinct station to confront officers, a brawl ensued and they were charged with disorderly conduct, obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest.
