Explosive brawl between cops and teens in Brooklyn subway station

Brooklyn Defender Services is representing one of the teens involved in the brawl and following incident. 

Shocking video shared across social media showed a group of officers involved in a massive brawl with teens at the Jay Street station in Brooklyn. 

In the video, a police officer was caught punching two black teens. 

One of the teens was 15-year-old Benjamin Marshall, who was punched in the face. His lawyer said Tuesday that his family intends to file a $5million lawsuit against the officer and the NYPD, according to the New York Daily News.

The legal defense organization said in their post that Latham's involvement was 'particularly troubling' adding that 'she was one of the officers who ripped the one-year-old child from the arms of Jazmine Headley.'

Headley's story went viral last year when video of NYPD officers yanking her baby from her arms circulated late last year.

Headley's mother, Jacqueline Jenkins, said her daughter, who is a cleaner, was at the centre to collect daycare vouchers for a minder who looks after her son, Damone. 

She said Headley sat on floor because there were no chairs available and that a security guard called police after she refused to stand up. 

Headley was released from Rikers Island jail on December 12 after five days in custody. 

She was held on charges including obstructing governmental administration, resisting arrest and endangering the welfare of a child and trespassing. Those were dropped.

According to the defender service, Headley was a client of theirs, and she has since sued the city for the arrest at the Dekalb Job Center.

BDS is also representing 19-year-old Adrian Napier and identified the arresting officer as Kyle Williams in his case.

A video of the incident involving Napier showed at least 10 police officers storming onto a stopped subway car and tackling an apparently unarmed black man inside, sparking accusations of excessive force.

The 19-year-old, who had his hands up and was seated at the time of the incident, was thought to have had a gun, but did not. He was later charged with theft of services. 

'We believe this information should be made public and that the names and histories of misconduct of all officers involved in these incidents should be made public,' Brooklyn Defender Services concluded in their statement. 

'These officer who have brutally attacked these young people and endangered dozens more must be held accountable for their actions.'

Nearly a thousand protesters took to the streets of Brooklyn to demonstrate against the NYPD after the videos went viral and over the department's plans to put more officers on the beat to catch anyone who skips paying the fare.

The protesters started gathering in Downtown Brooklyn near Barclays Center at about 7pm Friday, with their signs reflecting the dual nature of the march.

While flashier banners bore slogans such as 'Don't let these pigs touch us,' 'F**k the police,' 'Punch that cop' and 'NYPD out of MTA,' other signs read 'Free transit,' 'Poverty is not a crime' and 'Our subways need more $ for elevators, not for cops.'

Protesters also complained about Gov. Andrew Cuomo's recent decision to add 500 new officers to NYPD's force to patrol the transit system and root out fare evaders. 

Over the course of the two-hour protest, participants blocked traffic, shouted obscenities at nearby officers, jumped the subway turnstile en masse and committed acts of vandalization.
