Caught on tape: Cop assaults 15-year-old special needs student
48 Hours ^ | 10/10/09 | Mikey_1962

Posted on 10/10/2009 6:32:41 AM PDT by Mikey_1962

DOLTON, Ill. (CBS2) A 15-year-old special education student was walking down a hallway at school when he says a police officer grabbed him and threw him to the ground. The teenager says he was beaten and nearly suffocated and much of it was caught on tape.

The teen told his story to CBS 2 Chicago reporter Dave Savini.

Security cameras captured the beating of Marshawn Pitts, who says the officer started shouting and swearing at him because his shirt wasn't tucked in.

"I was tucking my shirt in," Pitts said.

But it's what happened next that had Marshawn Pitts worried for his life. Pitts says the officer came at him suddenly.

"It was just like boom," Pitts said.

He says he was blindsided by the officer, thrown into lockers and struck repeatedly.

In the video, you can see that he gets slammed to the ground and his face smashed into the floor. His nose was broken. Pitts says he was bleeding.

"All this on the outside of my mouth was busted," he said.

He calls this treatment violent and unnecessary, especially considering he was attending the Academy for Learning High School in Dolton for students like him with Special Education needs.

When he was younger, he suffered a brain injury and now has a learning disability. The school for special needs was supposed to help him and understand his situation.

"Yeah, but instead I got beaten on by police," Pitts said.

The officer in question was a Dolton police officer, and the hold he used on Pitts can be a dangerous one.

"It's called a face-down take-down, and kids and adults often die because they can't breathe," Naiditch said.

Not in this story but also about this same cop:

The Chicago Tribune-backed service adds: "A lawsuit filed by his ex-wife, Nicole McKinney, last summer alleges he gunned down her new husband Cornel McKinney in front of their children outside their home on the 6100 block of South Langley Avenue on Feb. 17, 2008."

An autopsy revealed Lloyd shot the man 24 times, the agency found. He was not jailed at the time as Chicago police accepted his explanation that the killing was in self-defense.

How did this jackass keep his job after the shooting.

24 shots? Self defense?

Is Chicago the worst place in the USA? I certainly hope so.

I didn’t know it was a crime to not tuck in your shirt.

I believe those children that attend this school are there because of behavior problems. Special needs covers a wide area as well. Like not attending school and falling behind. It looked to me that the 15 yr old was walking around and they were trying to get him back into class. There were other adults there as well (teachers?). I’m sure this 15 yr old probably said alot before this escalated to the point were the officer intervened.

Per the prior shooting, 24 shoots with a 9mm under a high stress situation fighting for one’s life can be reasonable...those rounds usually go right through and the attacker can continue to fight...being shot in the arm and legs won’t be fatal...so that autopsy is a general statement and we don’t know what caliber and the situation was at the time of the shooting.

Getting a beating for dress code??? Again - we don’t know because we weren’t there - there’s a host of circumstances that we the public don’t know and what did this 15 yr old do prior to this???

You don’t know because You weren’t there, but in spite of all the evidence of history Joe Stalin might have been a kindly loving man who was simply made to look bad by the brutal security people he naively surrounded himself with, and his evil capitalist enemies.

Or maybe the truth is often what the preponderance of the evidence indicates.

Just suggesting you might consider this view of the world, when faced with video that directly counters law enforcement assertions. Like the beatings of brain damaged children or bar tenders by police.

I understand the ‘devil’s advocate’ attempt. Trying to read between the lines and see if the officer had reason. The video shows enough before the assault to pretty much chuck that right out the window. Unless you believe the LEO’s are there to treat school age kids like inmates that is, or that talking back to an LEO deserves a beating.

Well obviously, he must have been a druggie trying to peddle marijuana to all of those younger kids around there. It's "for the children", don't you understand? The occifer was just trying to "serve & protect"!

I mean, look @ him: walking around w/ his shirt not being tucked in -- he had it coming to him! < / sarc>

Are your forgetting your /sarcasm tag? 24 hits, in your hypothetical high stress situation, either he was the worlds luckiest shot and fired three - nine round mags with over 90% hit rate and no center mass hits or he adapted a thompson with a drum mag to 9mm and let loose with one blast of fifty and hit the victim with half.

Not defending the cop here, but there are some gaping holes in the story. For starters, what was a city cop doing in a high school? What did the kid say that set the cop off? Who are the other people that dog piled on the kid? It looks to me like the kid might have made some kind of threat.

Not defending sanity here, , but there are some gaping holes in your theory. Per the article, this incident (caught on video) was not reported to the school authorities.

If the cop was doing his job and is on the level, how does that come about exactly?

The kid stole the cop’s report later? The dog ate it? He spilled coffee and donuts on it? Just why did the cop not report this as required?

Get back to me on that one.

You are going to get slammed here. You are not allowed to be rational when it comes to the police.

Who WERE those other people that helped the cop?
Why, if it was all about the shirt, did those people help?

I don’t give a $h!t what the kid may or may not have said. No cop in a school does that. This wasn’t a criminal resisting arrest. This was a kid violating a dress code.

Don’t be a bootlicker....

Sorry, this guy is a creep.

The fact he has had a badge this long is the real crime.

They aren’t giving interviews but “The State Board of Education says no one from the school reported the use of forceful restraint to them. “

That IS per the article, as I said before.

If you want to hold on to your personal crap about a brain damaged kid (Also per the article) being at fault here, then my question is reasonable.

Now if you want to reject what the child says about an incident that the cop and school evidently tried to claim didn’t happen before the video leaked, and who are now refusing to talk, go right ahead.

But don’t expect anyone with any decency to follow you down that road.

“24 shots? Self defense?”

Man, that guy had a license to kill, not a badge. 24 rounds from one cop? Normally it takes five or six to score that many hits. I wonder how many of them were vertical into a prone helpless victim? No way a guy not on drugs could still be standing after being hit even a few times.

The Blue Wall strikes again.

But I think this time it might not help him.

Thanks for the info. Thought Dolton was too much of a coincidence to not be the same creep that shot his ex-wife’s husband. Cop should be on death row, NOT walking around outside.

It's really pretty simple -- I will withhold judgment on anybody involved until I hear both sides. I'm sure even you can understand that, Mr. Edd.

The cop appeared totally out of line in handling the punk. OTOH, the punk was totally out of line. This school is probably totally out of control.

Right before the cop attacks the punk, the punk turns his face to him probably saying something that p!ssed off the cop. The punk later says he was tucking in his shirt and was blindsided. The video says otherwise.

OTOH, what if the punk had had a weapon?

Did you watch the video?

The response was not in proportion to the infraction. Anyone that thinks it is needs to have his head examined.

I feel terrible for this poor kid. Saw him on an interview last night and seemed like he is just trying to deal with some really tough health issues already from an early brain injury in life, and now he has to deal with getting pounded on by this animal. I give it to the kid, he's not playing the victim just wants to get back to school. What is the world coming to?

Murder, rape, and child abuse (probably a union member too)... Yep, perfect qualifications for a czar position. They already have a "safe child" czar - so maybe compliance czar.

...again, all I was attempting to say is that a 1 minute video doesn't explain all. The news is notorious about taking something that they “think” they understand - and blowing it out of proportion.

Now - since others have posted unrelated links on this officer - I would agree - that yes - this guy doesn't;t need to be in uniform.

Per the autopsy report - he would help to clarify (again) exactly what was the officers hit % in chest and head - like we are all trained to do - or was it sporadic...

Before I condemn anyone - I like a broader perspective - and I don't trust the media to give it to me...since they pick and choose what to cover and how much of that to cover - look at our current situation with Great Comrade Leader...

The video shows enough of the before activity to make it clear that being thrown up against the wall and assaulted was unjustified. Unless the LEO's 'grudge' or someone saying something he didn't like is justification. I'm having a hard time seeing your point here.

...all I was saying is that there are circumstances that occur before and after...the news always shows exactly what it wants the viewer to see. My view here is that I trust trust to the news to show me or even detail the incident that gives the viewer 100% of the information.

I was in the Green Zone and watched a reporter tell his audience that the reason why it’s called the Green Zone is because Saddam had gardens and everything is green - plus this is where they keep the money....wrong! - he got got it wrong - Green Zone means Safe Zone for US personnel...

So back to the point I was making about the video - just don’t go off of what you see until other outside information flows in to give a better perspective of the situation - that’s all I’m saying here...

I was threatened two years ago by a man on my street. (He’d started an argument with me and was shocked when this little woman wouldn’t back down.) Long story short: I called 911 on my cell and gave the license plate number of his vehicle and another one before they took off.

But, the police claimed 911 didn’t pass the license numbers on. I described the vehicle and told them where he said he lived, but all they would say is, “OK, we’ll drive by.” It was strange. They kept giving me the runaround.

Well, just this past summer, one of my sons told me there was a police cruiser parked in front of that same house, as if a cop lived there. Now I think that guy is a cop, and his buddies were covering for him. In fact, the more I think about the situation, the more I’m convinced that guy was a cop - or someone associated with the police in some way.

There are good cops, and there are bad ones. The cop who beat that student is abusing his badge.

According to other links on this thread, this cop also killed his ex-wife’s husband by shooting him to death. And after beating that student on videotape, now the same cop is jailed on rape charges in another case.

There are two sides to every story, but there’s too much smoke around this cop for there not to be a fire.
