The Baltimore school district is “vigorously” investigating a video posted to Facebook that shows a school resource officer repeatedly slapping and kicking a young man at a local high school.
The roughly four second Facebook video shows a resource officer at Lake Clifton Eastern High School at the REACH! Partnership School slapping a young man three times in the face and kicking him once Tuesday morning, Fox Baltimore reports.
The cell phone video appears to have been discretely recorded over the shoulder of an unidentified student, and shows a second officer standing idle as his partner pummels and curses the victim, according to the Baltimore Sun.
WJZ first highlighted the video and alerted district officials Tuesday. They weren’t very impressed.
