It seems that NYPD officers have really let this sink in: It doesn’t matter what they do, if they’re doing it to a black person. Take this particular plainclothes officer for instance: When his colleagues seem to be struggling to arrest a suspect — presumably a child — he jumps to the rescue and gives the kid a few punches to the body. He doesn’t care about cameras, bystanders, or the woman who claims to be a lawyer.

According to the Daily News, the two suspects were being arrested for assaulting someone with a cane. An Internal Affairs investigation is reportedly looking into the incident.

The woman in the video who claims to be a lawyer says the suspect who had just been assaulted is only 12 years old. She sums up the stupidity of this situation:

I can’t believe he just did that after everything that’s happened.
