VIDEO: Watch how a Pennsylvania State Cop Punches a Handcuffed 14-Year-Old Boy

The Pennsylvania state troopers were arresting Preston Weakland because he had run away from home.

But one cop ended up punching the 14-year-old boy after he was handcuffed, claiming the boy had head butted him.

However, video recorded by Weakland’s friends show the bill of his baseball cap may have touched the officer’s forehead, but only after the cop spun him around, demanding to know what the kid had just said, which was apparently some type of backtalk that is not audible on the video.

“What did you say?” the cops says like a playground bully throwing his weight around.

The cop uses his flashlight to knock the bill of the kid’s cap upwards and the kid lowers his head, possibly to keep the cap from coming off, which is when it may have touched the officer’s forehead.

“Congratulations, you just got a felony,” the cop says.

The video was uploaded to Facebook Wednesday by Weakland’s father, Joseph Weakland, who was not happy with the way the cop punched his son.

“This is how the state police treat my son…now he was mouthy but that doesn’t call for them to assault him,” he wrote on the Facebook post accompanying the video.

He is correct except the cop didn’t just assault him, he battered him. And he will probably get away with it as cops always do.

But the kid, who was cooperating with the cops by placing his hands behind his back and allowing himself to be handcuffed, does not deserve a felony just because the cop is unable to control his emotions.

We have slowed the video down in certain segments to capture what really took place before the cop punched the teen.

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.
