Get a fucking rope! :mad:
Javier Payne, a 14-year-old boy who was sitting in front of the Hookah Shop in the Bronx, just moments before a New York City police officer smashed him through the store’s plate glass window. The assault happened after an altercation with a man on the street, according to witnesses.
Now, Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson said the State has decided against filing criminal charges against Sgt. Eliezer Pabon, who assaulted the handcuffed 14-year-old.
Payne had been placed under arrest even though he was bleeding critically. EMT paramedics finally arrived and found a boy near death and “nonchalant” officers, who did not seem concerned about the condition of the young boy, according to witnesses on the scene.
Payne’s clothes were soaked in blood and yet in spite of his critical conditions, officers had made sure to cuff him, with his hands cuffed behind his back.
“He looked like a young man who was facing down his own mortality,” one city employee said in assessing the situation. “This is a kid who was staring at his own doom. He looked like he was going to die. And if he didn’t get help when he did, he would have.”
While the boy was rushed to Jacobi Medical Center, paramedics had to hold the boys chest wound closed. As they wheeled him in to the hospital, Payne was screaming in desperation: “They threw me through a glass window and now I’m going to die, I’m going to die.”
To add insult to injury, officers did not indicate that there was a pediatric emergency, involving a child. So EMT paramedics say there was no indication that there was to be a rush to the scene. As a result, Payne could have bled out and died because of officer negligence.
