ONLY COPS SHOULD HAVE GUNS? From [HERE] The video of a police officer pointing his gun at young boys and threatening a woman has gone viral, once again bringing attention to the epidemic of police brutality in the United States.
The incident reportedly took place near a recreation center in the Lower Valley Area of El Paso, Texas. The video, which was posted by a Facebook user who goes by the name AJ-King Stoner, showed the police officer confronting a boy.
The video showed a boy sitting on the sidewalk and the police officer standing next to him. The officer’s hand was placed on the boy’s head.
A gaggle of boys then gathered around the officer and began yelling at him. The cop then pointed his handgun at the boys and shouted at them to “back off”.
The boys continued to scream until he put his gun back into the holster and called for additional officers on the radio.
Minutes later, another officer ran into the frame of the video. Together, the two men pushed the young boy onto the ground and handcuffed him. The other officer waved his nightstick threateningly at the crowd and pushed a woman who dared to come close.
"It's all good," said the boy recording the footage. "We're going to put a report on these two fools. It's all good."
However, he was also grabbed by the officer and put in a squad car. Amid the altercation, the boy handed his phone to the woman who recorded the police officer handcuffing and throwing him into the car.
The police officer turned to the woman and threatened her with consequences and said, “I know where you live.”
“I don't [care],” she responded. “I'll move.”
The officer then moved towards another boy who looked even smaller in stature. The cop towered over him and said, “Do something”.
A voice was then heard saying, “He pulled out a gun on a little kid. That's assault. That's assault on a minor.”
The boy was then grabbed and pushed against the squad car.
It remains unclear why the police was called or if the boys are facing any charges. Sergeant Enrique Carrillo, a spokesperson for the police, said that the incident is under investigation.
