A video of a Mississippi police officer picking up and body slamming a 16-year-old is exploding online.
In the video, a Clarksdale police officer wrestles with a teenager for a moment before picking him up and slamming him to the ground headfirst. Clarksdale Police Chief Robbie Linley told FOX13 the officer has not been disciplined and they are still investigating. An ambulance was called, but the teen wasn’t hospitalized.
Wanda Lindsey Miles, the teenager’s mother, posted the video to Facebook Thursday.
“When am done you mf going to no not to fuck with my kids will b at my lawyer office in the morning,” she wrote.
The teen has been charged with disorderly conduct, assaulting an officer and resisting arrest for the Thursday altercation. Blue Lives Matter posted the video to Facebook Friday afternoon and it is going viral.
“Yet again people are in an uproar over an officer doing his job…this officer did not ask for this teenager to resist,” Blue Lives Matter wrote in the post. “He asked him to put his hands behind his back, but he didn’t…and this was the outcome…well done Officer.”
