NYPD cops smash innocent boy's head through a window, and then stall on calling for paramedics

The boy was said to be resisting arrest, but there's no word on what he was being arrested *for* in the first place. Was it a stop-and-frisk that went wrong? Or were the cops just looking to smash faces through windows? NYPD Officers Allegedly Smash Boy's Head Through Window, Nearly Killing Him | ThinkProgress
Cops smashed a handcuffed fourteen-year-old through a storefront window in the Bronx Saturday night, nearly killing him. The Juvenile Justice Information Exchange reports that Javier Payne suffered cuts to his face, his chest, and a punctured lung from being shoved into the window of the Hookah Shop. Paramedics had to hold Payne’s chest closed as he was rushed to the hospital — though they did not arrive on scene immediately because police called it in with a protocol used for drunks, not for a pediatric emergency. Payne was arrested that night with another teenager on charges of resisting arrest, obstructing government administration, and assault. While it’s not clear what the circumstances surrounding the arrest were, police often use these kinds of charges to discredit or obscure accusations of brutality. The report filed by the officers made no mention of the window smashing. After hours of surgery, Payne’s mother was allowed to see her son. “Mommy, Mommy,” he said. “The cop, he pushed my head through the window while I was handcuffed, Mommy, he pushed my head through the window.” JJIE interviewed Hookah Shop owner Nageib Aldaylam, who said the two boys visited the shop, but nothing untoward happened until the officers showed up and started questioning them. The boys argued with the officers until one of the cops smashed Payne through the window. Afterward, as Payne bled on the pavement, the cops asked Aldaylam if he had security footage, and if the boys had done anything when they entered the store. Aldayam said no.

Colorado cops need a lesson in the 4th Amendment

A guy robs a bank. In amongst the stolen money is a bug. Cops follow the bug to an intersection and find a busy street corner. They then arrest everyone in the intersection, wee children included, with assault rifles pointed in faces. The cops illegally detain and search everyone. They refuse medical help to people that need it. The suspect's description is a young white guy, 5'6" but they still arrest everyone. The robber is caught after 30 minutes, but due to a communications failure and incompetence, the cops keep everyone handcuffed for more than hours. City of Aurora, Police Sued for ‘More-Than-Two-Hour Mass Roundup’ of Innocent People in Search for Bank Robber | The Dissenter
What happened next, attorneys argue, was a clear violation of Fourth Amendment rights. Nineteen vehicles at this intersection were stopped and barricaded by police. Brandishing “ballistic shields and pointed assault rifles directly at innocent citizens, including children under ten years old,” officers allegedly had all occupants in vehicles at the intersection “hold their arms up and outside of their vehicle windows.” One officer, Christen Lertch, allegedly ordered the “officers to identify anyone in the stopped vehicles who appeared ‘overly nervous or anxious’ or refused to raise their hands and arms.” Also, “The officers would not permit anyone to shut off their vehicle’s ignition, put their vehicle in park, or lift their parking brakes.” The complaint further claims that after thirty minutes occupants, who had been holding their arms out their windows, were ordered to exit the vehicles. Police “pat down most of the individuals for weapons and handcuffed them.” Each person was “commanded” to “sit on the curb” while their vehicles were searched “without consent.” All of this occurred even though Paetsch had already been arrested and despite the fact that a “money band” was found in the vehicle Paetsch had been driving. Additionally, despite the fact that Paetsch, a “nervous individual” who was “perspiring” when pulled out of his car, had now been detained by police thirty minutes into the roundup, officers continued to prevent everyone from leaving the intersection for the next couple of hours.
