Cop Calls Handcuffed Man A Pussy As He Punches Him in The Face

We have a video that was uploaded earlier today that really shows the “ethical fortitude” and “good nature” of the Philadelphia Police Department. The video starts off with two men up against a porch with their arms up, in a non-threatening manner, being submissive to the police.

There’s no way to tell what the men are under arrest for from the video, but there doesn’t seem to be any evidence to suggest a fight of any kind.

Right off the bat the cop that would later go on to punch the man can be seen grabbing the citizen and angrily taunting him, shouting “you want to get locked the fuck up!?” while appearing to push the man, in an attempt to turn him around so that the two would be facing each other.

The citizen offers no resistance.

Then the same cop shoves his face into the stonework in front of the house, again taunting him, saying “you think we’re fucking playing out here. I’ll knock you the fuck out. I don’t give a fuck, you ain’t got nothing on me”.

He then starts to search the citizen while another officer holds his hands behind his back, with him handcuffed.

The officer conducting the search and the citizen seem to make brief eye contact, and the officer, without any provocation whatsoever, cowardly punches the citizen in the face twice while calling him a pussy.

The officer behind the citizen then takes him to the ground.

It is at this point that something odd happens. As the man is being pulled to the ground, the striking officer appears to pull something out of his pocket or belt.

It appears to be a gun but we are not sure. We did take this close up image of it in the frame, but it is so grainy that it appears as though it could be a revolver or something else.

The striking officer then puts his knee on the citizen’s head, with the other officer on top of his legs, and you can hear the citizen say “I’m not doing anything”.

The striking officer then looks to the camera and taunts the filmers saying “do me a favor, put that on the internet too”.

What is apparent at this point is that this cop can brazenly assault a man and feel totally confident that he is going to get away with it from the get go, even on camera.

They then scoop the man off the ground, dump his back pack on the ground, slam him up against the squad car for no apparent reason, then angrily shove him into the back seat and slam the door behind him without making sure he was even in the car to begin with.

The cop then confronts a woman off camera and, not every word can be heard, but the officer can be clearly heard saying the words “that’s the problem with this whole neighborhood” and “oh and he was just carrying a gun?”, which would seem to indicate that the item in his hand was in fact a gun.

The woman denies knowing anything about a gun. The cops then drive off but not before taunting the camera man one last time.

Watch the video below and let us know if you think the officer pulled out a gun or not.

Filming Cops was started in 2010 as a conglomerative blogging service documenting police abuse. The aim isn’t to demonize the natural concept of security provision as such, but to highlight specific cases of State-monopolized police brutality that are otherwise ignored by traditional media outlets.
