Violent Arrest of 2 Black Teens for Jaywalking Under Review in Tulsa (Watch)

Body cam footage

Bodycam footage of jaywalking arrests in Tulsa

Authorities in Oklahoma are investigating the violent arrest of two black teens who were accused by white police officers of jaywalking in a Tulsa neighborhood.

Tulsa police on Tuesday released two body cam videos of the officers after video of their arrest went viral. In one video, two officers approach the pair from behind after spotting them walking in the middle of what appears to be a residential street. Seconds later, an officer begins trying to restrain one of the teens who becomes visibly frustrated. The other video shows both officers forcing that teen to the ground and putting on handcuffs. The other teen is seen asking the officers why the teen was getting arrested.

“All he was doing was jaywalking,” one officer responds to the teen. “We just want to talk with him. Then he had to act a fool like that.”

Later, an officer ends up on top of the teenager while he’s restrained on his stomach even after he was handcuffed.

“Get off me! I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe!” the teen shouted.

“You can breathe just fine,” the officer replied. “You’re fine.”

“Sir, he has handcuffs on. What is he gonna do?” said the other teenager, who was later handcuffed while sitting on the curb.

The officers repeated to the teenagers that they broke the law because they jaywalked. Body camera videos show that the area the teens were walking in had patchy or no visible sidewalks.

The hate is so profound that they cannot contain themselves. The officers demonstrated their predisposition to hate and violence. I don't know what the solution is. Is it the training? or is it the perception that Whilte have of Black People?

The cops, in Oklahoma, was just being racist. Bring up the Tulsa Riots, and they stated it was long ago. Black people, or any relative should sue the U.S. government in world court, embarrass the U.S. them for what the did to the their ancestors. Alot if states have a history of racial violence towards black people. The jacksonville ax, riots, wilmington NC, riots. Those black NBA, athletes should boycott OKC. All black basketball athletes , should decline in playing for them, move the team back to Seattle.

Wtf, a******* have to learn. Wtf, is jaywalking, they just want to F, with black people. Tulsa, Okla, not surprise, Trump, is doing one of his rallies, there. Any black family that is still left after that bombing, should sue the state, and U.S., I hope Spike Lee, do a movie about it, embarrass their ass. Show how evil and wicked they are. Let's see how many black athletes want to play in Okc.
