A shocking video is going viral on Thursday that shows a violent altercation between a group of NYPD cops.
The video opens with two uniformed police officers struggling with a suspect at a subway station. A cop in plainclothes joins the brawl, and then things get messy.
The plainclothes cop tries to kick the suspect, but in the confusion he misses and instead deals one of his officers a brutal blow to the head.
“He kicked the cop,” a woman can be heard chuckling off camera.
The kick was done with such force that the blow lands with a massive thud that is clearly audible. The cop who was kicked is clearly dazed as his fellow officers finally get the suspect under control.
When the NYPD saw the video, they were shocked by the brutality of the blow and immediately took the plainclothes cop’s badge and gun. With all the police brutality scandals the NYPD has had over the last few months, they don’t feel like they can risk having someone like that on the force.
What do you think of this video? Did the cop deserve to lose his badge and gun? Sound off in the comments below!
