Shocking Video Shows 'Undercover Officer' Striking Handcuffed Teenager With Baton

Disturbing footage which shows a plain clothes officer beating a teenage suspect who is already handcuffed and offering no resistance is being investigated by police.

The officer repeatedly strikes the 17-year-old on the legs as he says: 'I'm a child!'

Members of the public watching the scene in Romford, east London, can be heard criticising the officer who had arrested the youngster for possession of Class B drugs with intent to supply.

The Metropolitan Police said there was a 'struggle' before his arrest and a second teenager assaulted an officer.


The video, which emerged online on Tuesday, has prompted former Deputy Mayor of London, Lee Jasper, to announce he will make a formal complaint to the Metropolitan Police.

The incident happened on Monday in Heath Park Road.

The video, which does not show the whole incident, shows a young man wearing a set of handcuffs being escorted by a police officer in plain clothes with a baton primed for strike.

The officer then strikes the teenager's legs and an onlooker can be heard shouting 'what the f***, fam'.

The officer continues to batter the teenager who can be heard shouting 'what the f*** are you doing to me, why the f*** are you hitting me for?'

Ther handcuffed teenager then gets on his knees and pleads: 'I'm a child, I'm a f****** child.'

The police officer then holds the detained teenager down and turns to the onlookers and says: 'Someone dial 999.'

An onlooker says: 'You can't just hit him like that,' while the detained teenager screams: 'I've done nothing, he's slapping me with a stick.'

The youngster then turns his attention to the officer and says: 'Do you know what you have just done? I'm taking you to court.'

A Metropolitan Police Service spokeswoman said: 'Police were on patrol in Heath Park Road, Romford on Monday, 22 April when they found reason to stop and search two teenagers under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

'The second male, aged 14, escaped the officers and ran to his home address. Here, an officer found the male and after another struggle, he was detained. During the struggle the officer was assaulted by the male.

'He was arrested for obstruction and assault on a police officer. Both males were taken to an east London police station and subsequently released under investigation.

'We are aware of footage circulating on social media. No formal complaint has been received at this time but the full circumstances surrounding the incident, including the actions of the officers, are being reviewed.'

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
