There’s a video that’s making its way around the internet showing a cop slapping a student in Baltimore. And when I say slap, I don’t mean “kind of if you see it from this angle it could maybe be a slap.” I mean this officer slapped the living hell out of this kid. Watch for yourself.
The head of the Baltimore school police force and two officers are on administrative leave after video surfaced showing an officer repeatedly slapping a young man at a school, CBS Baltimore reports.
Slap after slap-even a kick-was caught on camera as the officer uses profanity while striking his victim at Reach Partnership School, a middle-school/high-school.
CBS Baltimore reports that the chief of Baltimore City school police, Marshall Goodwin, has been placed on administrative leave because of the incident. The recording came to attention of authorities after it was sent to CBS Baltimore.
“I was totally appalled at what I saw today,” said Karl Perry, chief officer of school supports.
Look, we don’t know any more details, and unlike the preemptively mob-like leftists with the Spring Valley case (read about that here) or McKinney case, I’m not going to condemn the police officer until more facts come in. That’s not the point of this article. At all. Okay? Okay.
An interesting aside, however, is that those other two stories triggered instant outrage all across the land. Protests, hashtags and riots, oh my! Meanwhile there’s barely a beep about this video. Why not? This is a faaaarrr more violent incident than either of the ones previously in question. A cop smacking a kid silly is all the rage these days. That’s great for ratings… yet the left is suspiciously silent. It couldn’t possibly be that this particular out of context video doesn’t fit into the media’s “white cops gone wild” narrative, could it?
It couldn’t possibly be, that as in most situations with police-student interactions in Baltimore… that the cop is actually black? Could it?
Again, I’m not saying that this officer is guilty of anything. I’ve no idea as to what happened before the cameras were rolling. But neither did anybody else when they brandished their torch and pitchforks for the white cops doing their job. Don’t expect to hear about this anywhere else.
Kind of like you never hear about the famous cases involving “racist, police brutality” when they’re proven to be hoaxes. Isn’t it interesting how they just seem to… fade away?
Case in point: remember the notorious LAPD shooting incident? Yeah, about that…
