A deeply disturbing video has surfaced this week showing Washington D.C. police walk up to a group of men, handcuff one of them, and proceed to sexually assault him. Despite the man’s repeated objections to the rear probing, the cop continued his assault.
To get a glimpse of what it looks like to endure police harassment on a daily basis, one needn’t look any further than the video below.
The Free Thought Project reached out to the person who uploaded the video and the Washington D.C. police, but we have yet to hear back from either party. However, one does not need to know every detail of this incident to know that everything about it is wrong.
As the video begins, police appear to be responding to several men drinking alcoholic beverages. This apparently gave them probable cause to then detain and search the men.
In the video, one of the officers makes a man spread his legs so he can search him. During the search, as clearly seen in the disturbing video, the officer begins ramming a finger into the man’s rear.
The assault is so glaring and painful that the victim actually risks a massive beating by slapping the cop’s hand away. Despite having found nothing and clearly knowing that he is hurting his victim, the cop continues.
During the second assault, the officer makes sure his victim is less able to resist by placing him in handcuffs. After he restrained his victim, the cop moved back in to search for whatever it is he thought he would find in this man’s rear.
“Stop fingering me bro!” the man yells as the cop continues the assault.
The entire time, the officer acts like his actions are just. All of the other officers around him simply watch as he assaults a man in a fruitless effort to find an illegal substance.
As soon as the horrible experience is over, the cop removes the handcuffs and leaves like nothing happened.
