Cops Smile With Pleasure After Giving Teenage Boy Permanent Brain Damage

UPDATE (5/27/15) Mistrial Declared

It appears as though the officer involved in this attack will be — surprise, surprise — getting away with it.

As WMUR News reports:

The judge presiding over the case against a former Seabrook police officer declared a mistrial on Tuesday.

A YouTube video shows what some are calling excessive force by Seabrook police officers.

Jurors were not able to reach a verdict against Mark Richardson.

Richardson was charged with assault after video showed him pushing Michael Bergeron into a wall at the Seabrook Police Station.

The victim was a marijuana smoker.

Stunningly, the belief held by one of the jurors is that marijuana gives people “super human strength,” evidently justifying the officer in attacking the “super human” — thus the jury could not reach a decision.

NEW HAMPSHIRE — A video has surfaced showing a defenseless teenager getting his head rammed into a wall at the police station.

The officers can be seen smiling with pleasure after the boy's head was rammed into a wall.

After the teenager’s head was rammed into the wall, he can be seen collapsing to the ground.

An officer casually takes out his pepper spray and begins shooting the boy with it.

At that point the cops can be seen giggling and smiling with pleasure.

After four years, the department is now reviewing the footage and investigating the officers, according to reports.

The incident occurred in 2009, but the footage was released this week.

After reviewing the footage that was uploaded by the victim this week, Town Manager William Manzi remarked, “The Police Chief and I take it very seriously, it will be a real investigation. And it will be a thorough investigation.”

“The results will lead us where the results lead us,” he said.

The cops claimed that they arrested the victim for drunk driving.

But the victim reports that he was not drunk.

He says that after he had been released from a cell for booking, the police told him that he could collect his wallet and his phone.

But when he reached for his belongings, the police began choking him, he says.

His account gives the impression that officers were intentionally confusing him in order to have an excuse to initiate violence on him.

Judging by the looks on their faces, it certainly appears that they enjoyed what they were doing and may have been wanting to pick a fight just for fun.

“As I greabbed my wallet from the table he officer with the glasses came at me saying he never told me I could take my stuff and choked me against the wall then tried to grab the wallet from my pocket. once he got the wallet and my phone this is what happened,” says the victim.

He says that he suffers from permanent brain damage now.

He also says that he has a  “permanent lump on the back of my head” and “chipped teeth.”

The victim says he has permanent brain damage and chipped teeth.

After reviewing the video, police chief Michael Gallagher insisted to WBZ-TV that the teenage boy was “on something.”

“That doesn’t excuse any improper behavior on the part of the officers,” he added.

The officers have not been identified, but they are still bringing home cash given to them, under the threat of force, by American taxpayers.
