Video of Florida Officer Slamming The teenage head goes viral

Video of Florida police officers who beat a 15-year-old black boy's head into the pavement during an ongoing arrest, went viral over the weekend, sparkling rebellion from celebrities like Lebron James-but an officer involved claims that adolescents were "aggressive" and punching him in the head was nothing but a "distracting technique".

Video of Florida police officers who beat a 15-year-old black boy’s head into the pavement during an ongoing arrest, went viral over the weekend, sparkling rebellion from celebrities like Lebron James-but an officer involved claims that adolescents were “aggressive” and punching him in the head was nothing but a “distracting technique”.

The video of the meeting that is shared on social media with hashtag #JusticeForLucca seems to show teens, who have been referred to as “Lucca” and “Delucca” online and reach down to pick up something outside the ground outside a McDonald’s. Tamarac, Florida, while Broward County Sheriff’s alternates handcuff another teen on the ground.

An official turned around and confronted Lucca, then the pepper sprayed him in the face. When Lucca turned and tried to walk, the official took him by the shoulders and hit him to the ground.

Movies from video taken at a different angle show another officer jumping on his teens after he has been shot to the ground. The officer repeatedly struck the boy’s head into the pavement before punching him once in his head. Teens were then relentless, an arm protruding, while the companions shouted “what are you doing?” And “he bleeds!”

Images taken after the meeting show the bottom of the face that has become dark in the blood.

Mayor Mark Bogan of Broward County tweeted Friday that the official’s behavior was “outrageous and unacceptable”, adding: “The officer who skipped the student, punched and kneeled his head should be fired.”

Broward County Sheriff’s Office did not immediately respond to The Daily Beast’s comment request.

Video of the meeting went viral over the weekend, after celebrities like LeBron James and David Hogg condemned the officers involved. “So wrong !! Goes to my soul !!” James wrote on Twitter . “Believing it could be my sons. Scary times man.”

“It is interesting how everyone in Parkland and Broward called local law enforcement a few months ago,” wrote David Hogg a survivor of shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in nearby Parkland. “But now the black and brown youth are brutally assaulted in the school by the same police 15 minutes away. Full silence …”

In the aftermath of the attack, Sheriff Gregory Tony promised a “thorough investigation” of the matter in a press release. He also announced that one of the officers involved, Christopher Krickovich, would be placed on administrative leave for the use of force.

In an arrest warrant confirmed by BuzzFeed News, Krickovich offered his side of the story. He wrote that the students often fought in the square after school and that the day before the arrest had been a great fight that resulted in damage to the property of an innocent agent.

After taking a fight on Thursday, Krickovich wrote he and other officers saw a teenager who had been involved in the previous day’s activities. The student was in storage “without incident” – but when the teenage mobile phone fell during the arrest, Lucca bent to retrieve it.

After Sgt. Greg LaCerra told Lucca that he would be back, Krickovich argues that his teens “took an aggressive attitude” against the official and “leafed his body and started tying his fists”. After an officer sprayed the pepper ghosts and forced him to the ground, Krickovich said he jumped on the boy and “pushed down […] to ensure that my full weight was on his person so that he could not try to fly or fight us. “

“Again, the three of us were outsiders by the large group of students who screamed, threatened us, and surrounded us,” Krickovich wrote. “I had to act quickly and fear that I would be beaten or that a student could catch weapons from my belt or vest.”

When teens moved their right arm under their head to protect their face from entering the sidewalk, Krickovich added: “I hit [him] in the right side of his head with a closed fist as a distracting technique to liberate his right hand. “

During a pre-scheduled meeting with the group of the selected group in Broward County on Saturday, Sheriff Tony tried to stifle the phrase.

“It’s the most electrifying and dangerous situation for a law enforcement administrator to handle,” Tony said. “Whenever a white deputy is involved in contact with using force on a black youth, this thing strikes.”

He added that despite the furor against the officers, he cannot shoot them. “It’s been a big scream to just go out and shoot them. Just get rid of them,” he says. “You all know it doesn’t work that way. It will be done properly. “
