Parents Angered After Cop Pushes Boy’s Face Into Snow, Knees Him in the Spine


LITTLE FALLS — “I couldn’t believe what was going on you know. I thought to myself, ‘Is this really happening?'” asked Michael, a 16-yr-old boy who was seen on video being abused and beaten by a cop.

Footage from a surveillance camera has residents of Little Falls, New Jersey shocked as it appears to show a cop pushing the boy’s face into the snow and kneeing him in the spine.

The incident began when the cop knocked on the door of the Michael’s house.

Michael says that he was home in a t-shirt and no shoes when the cop suddenly knocked on his door.

Police apparently knocked on Michael’s door because they were “looking for someone” whom they claimed was an acquaintance of Michael’s.

When Michael explained to the officer that he didn’t know where such a person was, the officer suddenly grabbed Michael from his doorway and threw him down into the snow, according to reports.

“I got a knee to my head. It was snowing outside, I had no jacket no shoes,” Michael said.

Police came knocking on Michael’s door, looking for his acquaintance Saturday evening, for what we don’t know.

“This officer was much bigger than him and he did something that he shouldn’t have been doing especially to a minor,” said Fina Elsaadany, who is Michael’s mother.

Even though the video clearly shows the officer pushing Michael’s head into the freezing snow and pushing his knee into Michael’s back, Michael has been charged with “resisting arrest.”

Michael’s parents reported the abuse to their local prosecutor, in hopes that the officer will be appropriately disciplined for the assault.

So far the police department has not specified what, if anything, will be done about the officer’s conduct captured on video, citing a pending investigation by the prosecutor.

    Being dragged out of your parents house….when cops are there just to ask questions about someone else…..need updates on this…. someone will defend these actions….and I surely have no idea why.

      Yep. Stand by and there will be a bunch of copsuckers here shortly.

    I wonder how long it will take before officer Pigbert claims he “feared for his life”?
    Kind of wish that this video had been with held until after the police had cleared the officer and allowed him to commit perjury( I started writing adultery, that was wierd). Any police apolagists here wish to weigh in?

    • Wesley Sandel

      It doesn’t really matter if they commit perjury – I recently sat in a courtroom in which it became obvious to the judge that one of the officers was perjuring himself (the dash cam and the the testimony of the other officer contradicted his testimony) and all the judge did was dismiss the case. Cops lie – they lie to you, they lie under oath, and they lie habitually. They even have a joke name for it – testilying.

  • Michael Fuson

    when the boy said he didnt know the guy that way it. this cop now has commited assult, kidnapping, false arrests.

    • Michael Cowan

      Fuck the police and their stupid little investigations. I would NEVER help the police, on ANY crime. Any interaction with the police is bad for you. At the very minimum you get on their records. So when their incompetence has them not finding the bad guys, they will keep coming back to you, more questioning, time down town.

      I don’t give a fuck if you catch some gang banger or not. The average American is safer with a gang banger in their neighborhood than a cop in their house.

      I am sick of th cowards who give up their rights and safety to these tyrants in the police force, just because someone tells them a bad guy might steal change from their car. So because they are afraid of car burglars we need to let police assault and beat us, steal our property and fire off 50 – 100 rounds around our homes because they are afraid of pets and unarmed teens?

      We need more official Neighborhood Cop Watch, with meetings and signs and radios. Signs up to let the police know their patrols are not wanted. If we need them for some big rape orgy or active shooting .. we will call them.

  • Michael Fuson

    cops are now using resisting arrest to arrest people for no crimes.

    • Gary Williams Jr.

      uh, they’ve been doing that for decades now. all this shit started with the war on drugs, and then they kicked it into high gear after 9/11….to “protect us”, of coarse. I’ve got a better idea, let the cops go beat themselves, and I will protect my own ass. I don’t need some fat ass faux tough guy wanna be. if not for the badge, they wouldn’t be shit anyway. 98% of these dumb asses, all you’d have to do is out “dance ” them, and their fat asses would be out of breath anyway. do they even have cops that have a fat index of less then 40%?

      • Zeconte

        Why would the cops be out of breath? They’d just stand there and shoot you to death if you tried something like that.

    punks, cowards and pussies and that’s the allegedly “male” pigs, then you’ve got the ugly, skanky dyke, faux tough “guy” twat cops, who are also, punks, cowards, and stinky pussies

  • Drakenfly

    This why you do NOT open the door BEFORE looking to see who it is and if you know who it is and decide to open the door make sure a chain lock is in place and you have a gun on you incase the officer tries to break in the door…

  • draybrownz

    Rule No1. Never open your door to a police officer. What’s so hard to understand about that?

    • That sounds good, but you do you know that doors can be kicked down, battering rammed in, and so forth? We need a better plan, like uniting and defending and protecting each other from the few people who would assault and kidnap others.

      • Bendy Bentley

        A better plan is to shoot through the door with the first kick. Then move aside.

        • My man. And I think we would need some networking and ongoing support from everyone around us, so we don’t end up jailed or killed by the group who attacked us; by their reinforcements. Remember Waco. I’m with you bro. Contact me. My Skype is my name here with no spaces.

      • Sophia Schweit Aiken

        yes, because an unarmed 16 yr old in his own home is going to kidnap and kill those cops by saying he doesnt know where someone is. what kind of bullshit is that? its bad cops like this, who do things like this and get away with it, that is making it hard to stand by cops who make an honest mistake. i wouldnt just make a complaint, id get a lawyer who likes suing bad cops!

        • It’s say more accurately it’s people like all of us who allow it to happen that’s the problem. We all know it’s going on. The stories are rampant. It’s only us not recognizing our oneness, acknowledging the corruption of this system, and working together free of government, money, etcetera.

    • Michael Cowan

      I agree. If you look outside and see 1-2 cops standing around with their dicks out. Simply don’t answer the door, don’t announce yourself. Get your phone out and start streaming the video to the web. THEN call 911 and say there are people dressed like cops beating on your door and you are afraid to answer the door because they look suspicious. Refuse to answer the door and let the 911 operator know you are not going to answer the door.

      If there are a BUNCH of cops dressed all gang-banger tactical .. you should crack the door open and ask to see the search warrant. If they have a warrant and you don’t answer they will break in. But they will never come with 1 or 2 guys to serve the warrant.

    • Maria Garcia-Eggly This how you answer the door when it might be a cop…

  • Rick Hiltz

    in order to be charged with resisting arrest you first have to be detained for some other reason and arrested for it

    • Babz Covington

      actually, no . not anymore . put when resisting arrest is the only charge into google, sir.

      • Rick Hiltz

        how can you be charged with resiting arrest if there are no other charges ……………………….unless you have committed a crime they can not arrest you and to resist being handcuffed for their security is not a crime unless you are charged with a crime they can`t handcuff you and only s fucking moron would let them …………Supreme court has ruled you have the right to resist an unlawful arrest

  • Bruce Bell

    you could knock on my door till the end of time nothing in the world is written I have to open it to you or anyone. It is there for my convenience nothing more. Try forcing your way in and see how that works out for you.

  • Bendy Bentley

    So he was being arrested? For what? Cops like this should be eliminated from the force, forever. There was a kid in Fountain Colorado who killed himself after a cop visited him at home with no parental supervision. Murderous thugs.

  • Clive

    He doesn’t seem to be resisting arrest in this video. It seems like the cop got mad and decided to punish the kid for not having the correct answers. So, he arrested the kid for resisting arrest when he already wasn’t under arrest because he hadn’t done anything wrong. The problem there is that cops know that A) they likely won’t get in trouble and B) even if they do you still got your ass kicked. Cops have deemed themselves judge, jury, and executioner.

  • johnee

    And how did the cop determine he was lying ? Oh that’s right, cops can read minds.

  • Mathieu Hubin

    Hey Piers Morgan… See that video up there??? Yeah, That is why Americans need AR-15’s. Enough said.

  • Paul Val

    I don’t get it. In order to resist arrest, they have to try to arrest you for something. As far as I can tell, they were not their to arrest him, they had no warrant. So what justification do the police have to even touch him? As far as I can tell, the cop is a criminal. The cop should be arrested for assault and battery, false arrest etc.

    I smile every time a cop dies.

    The police are merely testing the waters. It will get a lot worse. This is only the beginning of an all out police state. You ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

    Resisting arrest charge against the victim, should be a kidnapping charge against the cop.
