Philly Cop Threatens to Beat Teen for Making Eye Contact

A Philadelphia cop was caught on video threatening to beat a teenager walking home from school because he had made eye contact with the officer.

> “Big man, do we have a problem?” the cop asks. “Because I notice that you keep trying to make eye contact with me. Is there a problem?”
> The teens’ response is inaudible.
> “Okay, well keep fuckikng walking,” the cop says. “The next time you look me in my fucking eye, I’m gonna beat the shit out you!”

The video, uploaded to Facebook earlier this month, is only 12 seconds long, but it was enough for his department to discipline him. Or so they say.

The department didn’t go as far as providing his name to the local media who inquired about the officer, so there is a good chance he will receive a slap on the wrist, if anything.

> Police told NBC10 they were aware of the incident and the officer in the video will be disciplined for his actions. However, they also did not reveal when and where the incident occurred or what led to it.
> According to a law enforcement source, the officer belongs to the 19th District.
> A Philadelphia Police official, who did not want to be identified, also commented on the video.
> “The video does not reflect well on the officer,” the official said. “I have no doubt he had good reason to be exasperated but you have to maintain your professional demeanor.”

It isn’t clear if the teen was giving the cop [ __“dehumanizing stares,”__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/miami-dade_police_choke_black.php) which Miami-Dade police used to justify beating a teen who had been carrying a puppy on a beach last year.

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.
