Police in Maryland released disturbing bodycam footage that shows officers handcuffing a weeping 5-year-old and calling him a “beast” after placing him in a squad car for not being in school.
The video, released by the Montgomery County Police Department on Friday, was recorded in January 2020 and shows the officers repeatedly berate the small boy as he sobs uncontrollably.
“Does your mama spank you? She’s going to spank you today,” one of the officers tells the boy.
The officers first encounter the child walking around a neighborhood after he allegedly “left school grounds.”
