A five-second video depicting an incident with a Baltimore school police officer has sparked a “vigorous” investigation. Meanwhile, the head of Baltimore schools police and two officers have been put on leave.The video shows a uniformed officer cursing as he slaps and kicks at a young man at REACH! Partnership School. The youth who recorded the video told WJZ that the victim is indeed a student there.
There is no way to tell from the video what could have led up to the incident, but these five seconds alone were enough for Karl Perry, the chief school supports officer, to be “totally appalled.”
Schools spokeswoman Edie House Foster called the incident “unacceptable and appalling.”
