Cops in Syracuse New York are being accused of traumatizing a 10 year old boy after they arrested him for allegedly stealing a bag of chips at a convenience store!
When a resident asked what was going on the cops were very rude and told the guy to mind his own business!
'Keep walking dude, you don't know even know what you're talking about,' one officer replied.
'I know what I just came up and see!' the man behind the camera stated. 'I know what I just came up and see!'
'I see you snatching him up the butt like he's a grown-ass man - and he said it wasn't him!
'If he stole some chips, I'll pay for them. I'll pay for them! Leave him alone! He's a kid!'
The man talking to the officers even offered to buy the bag of chips so they could let the kid go but they wouldn't listen to him.
The police department released a statement
'We are aware of a video being shared on social media involving several of our Officers and juveniles accused of stealing from a store on the City's northside. The incident, including the Officers' actions and body-worn cameras, are being reviewed. 'There is some misinformation involving this case. The juvenile suspected of larceny was not placed in handcuffs. He was placed in the rear of a patrol unit where he was directly brought home. Officers met with the child's father and no charges were filed.'
