Video: Florida Police Give Reasons For Punching Black Male Using Residents Pool During Arrest

Here is a video of the moment Lakeland Florida police punched and arrested a non-resident black teen who was reportedly using the pool of an apartment complex.

Events leading to the part of the video that showed the two officers throwing punches at the big black male were not captured. However, many opined that the cops used excessive force in arresting the teen. It was also unclear if the man was compliant with the orders of the police.

The cops were called upon the boy for trespassing at a Memorial Day pool party. He was arrested and charged with trespassing, battery on a law enforcement officer, and resisting arrest.

It was reported that the 16-year-old teen was asked to leave the premises after he refused to identify himself or provide proof he lived there. His arrest affidavit also said he was uncooperative and punched the officer in the face.

“I don’t believe that there is going to be any video that shows the young man struck the officer first”, Pastor Clayton Cowart with the Poor Minority Justice Association said, defending the boy and requesting for the release of the officers’ bodycam footage. “What I will say is this, where was his de-escalation tactics?” He asked.

“Lakeland has this culture of not playing the video, so let’s see if we have the video first,” Cowart added.

The Lakeland Police Department is reviewing the incident with community activists calling the teen’s arrest a gross act of police brutality and requesting criminal charges against the officers.

Lakeland PD said that Chief Sam Taylor is in dialogue with community leaders and the incident is under review by the Office of Professional Standards.

Some community leaders will meet with the police chief later this week. Cowart said there is a protest planned for Saturday outside the Lakeland Police Department at 6 p.m.
