Seattle police were caught on camera beating a mentally disabled teenager who was jaywalking.

The incident occurred last year but the video just surfaced as part of a lawsuit against the Seattle Police Department claiming excessive force.

The video was shot by a friend of the teen.

The teen is accused of walking in the street and blocking traffic, so he obviously deserved to be beaten by five cops, including one who can be seen in the video running up to him and punching him in the stomach.

Once the story made the news, police released a statement saying that we should not be concerned about them “guiding the suspect to the ground and handcuffing him” because they conducted their own investigation into the matter and found no wrongdoing.
