Video shows Maryland police handcuffing, berating 5-year-old boy

Law enforcement has obviously not learned any lessons despite all the protests against police mistreatment of people of color. And the politicians continue do nothing about it:

Newly released body camera footage shows two Maryland police officers handcuffing and berating a 5-year-old boy who had allegedly left school without permission.

The Montgomery County Police Department released the video on Friday. It was recorded in January 2020 and contains disturbing content.

“I watched in horror as what can only be described as a nightmare unfolded for nearly an hour,” Montgomery County Council member Will Jawando said in a tweeted statement. “It made me sick.”
