South Florida cop caught on video kneeing submissive suspect



After tazing a suspect into submission, Florida City police officer Auris Leza looked around as if to see who was watching, then plowed his knee at least two times into the suspect’s back, who was already lying motionless on the ground.

At least that how it looks on the video shot by a witness.

According to the witness:

“He looked around. He looked up and obviously thought no one was looking, then he just grabbed the kid. I saw his hands were behind. He was already in a submissive position. And he just got down and just kneed him, probably two or three times,” said the witness, who did not want to be identified.

The witness turned the video over to Local 10, who showed it to Internal Affairs Officer Jermaine Brodie.

Local 10 asked if the man was not resisting arrest, would that mean the officer acted against department policy?

“Yeah, if there was no need to put any force down due to the subject cooperating and not resisting,” Brodie said.

The suspect was charged with battery on a police officer, even though that part wasn’t caught on video.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
