State Trooper Grabs Handcuffed 14yo Boy By the Neck, Punches Him in the Face

Free Thought Project – by Matt Agorist

Altoona, PA — Once again, an abusive police officer is in the news after he was captured on cellphone video bullying and then punching a handcuffed 14-year-old boy in the face. There was no spit, no head butt, and nothing in the video shows the boy doing anything other than complying and talking to provoke the cop into hitting him.

The officer is a Pennsylvania state trooper who is currently enjoying anonymity from the department. He and another trooper were at a residence last week to arrest Preston Weakland, the 14-year-old boy in the video below, for running away.  

As the video shows, the child is compliant and peace as he says goodbye to his friends and simply stands up and puts his hands behind his back as the officer tells him to do so.

“Put your hands behind your back,” the trooper tells Weakland, who replies, “I figured,” and does exactly what he’s asked.

He is then handcuffed without issue when the boy’s friend can be heard asking, “Why did you guys handcuff him?”

A girl can then be heard trying to hush the other boy just as Weakland mutters, “Because he’s a pussy.”

This was a poor decision to make while in handcuffs and being arrested. However, it is not illegal and most certainly did not justify the officer’s response.

“What did you say? What did you say?” the clearly enraged trooper yells at Weakland as he grabs him by the collar and shoves him into the dresser.

“Don’t get in my face like that,” Weakland says as the trooper gestures toward his face with his flashlight.

Being asked to get out of his face apparently enraged the trooper even further who then appears to punch the boy in his face with the hand holding the flashlight. The smack of the trooper’s fist into the face of a 14-year-old handcuffed boy is chilling.

“Don’t fucking hit me!” yells the trooper, in a likely attempt to justify his seemingly unprovoked violence. How a handcuffed child who is only 5’8″ and barely weighs 140 pounds, could “hit” a trooper who is manhandling him remains a mystery. What’s more, the video shows no such hit.

“I didn’t hit you,” Weakland confirms.

In spite of the fact that the boy was handcuffed and no such attempt to hit nor any actual hit is captured on video, the trooper then states, “congratulations, you just got a felony.”

The two cops then escort the boy out of the room and the video ends.

The boy’s father Joseph Weakland posted the video to his Facebook page over the weekend which was filled with backlash toward the state police in the comment section.

“Thank God he’s not injured — mentally, maybe,” Joe Weakland said.

According to the Altoona Mirror, Preston Weakland said Friday he did make the comment about the trooper that seemed to spark the confrontation, but up until that point everyone in the room was calm and he was doing what he was told, even though the officers never told him where they were going or why he was being handcuffed.

“He was being compliant and it looks like that officer was instigating and antagonizing him,” the boy’s mother Tricia Reed said noting that the trooper’s actions were unacceptable.

His parents described Weakland to the Mirror as quiet and “a good kid” who has not been in any serious trouble, but has been defiant, and ran away because he doesn’t want to follow his mother’s rules.

Following the release of the video, the department responded by noting that there was an internal investigation underway.

“An internal investigation is being conducted to determine the facts and circumstances around the video,” Trooper David McGarvey, spokesman for Troop G in Hollidaysburg, said in a statement Friday.

Weakland’s parents are now asking that all charges over this incident be dropped as their son is the victim.

    Joseph weakland is the pussy.
    How is that trooper still alive????

  2. Enemy of the State says:

    a non brutality law needs to be put in place .. whereas the pig will be prosecuted, and serve the same time we would for said same offense,. if he physically abuses anyone once they are rendered unable to defend themselves

    If caught abusing a restrained child 10 years MIN., no pension

    if anything about this that should be “dropped” it should be the pig .. right on his fat face

    • Koyote says:

      We have enough law in the Bill of Rights. That “cop” is working an unlawful job that cannot exist. It’s time for Americans to stand up and raise their children , force open the common law courts, make steps to destroy the works of communist Jews and the Federal reserve.
      Start bartering for Pete’s sake! Stop paying these assholes when you can!!!

      • Enemy of the State says:

        You know what?
        Yer right , I have no excuse for that comment above

        Lay them all to waste , quit playin

    *** “What did you say? What did you say?” the clearly enraged trooper yells at Weakland as he grabs him by the collar and shoves him into the dresser. ***

    Do you have a hearing problem, piggy? The kid called you a “pussy,” after which you proceeded to confirm his assessment of you through your actions.

    Of course this is typical pig behavior, with the PA State Pigs being one of the more chickensh!t departments in the country.

  4. Henry Shivley says:

    True mark of a coward and the video shows the state of our people. What a dirty son of a bitch.

  5. James M. says:

    It looks to me like the police everywhere are going to keep this up until all citizens are subdued — they will know that one peep and they will be severely hurt.

    • Koyote says:

      I will say again;

      That boy’s daddy is a piece of dirt. If that we’re my son, I’d still be on that damned troopers head. Like a coon drowning a hound….

  6. # 1 NWO Hatr says:

    “Don’t f**king hit me!” yells the trooper, in a likely attempt to justify his seemingly unprovoked violence.”

    The preferred twist on “Stop resisting!”

    “… the officers never told him where they were going or why he was being handcuffed.”

    They need a reason these days?

    They’re the KING’S MEN, they don’t need no stinkin’ reason… COMPLY OR DIE is their new motto.

    “An internal investigation is being conducted to determine the facts and circumstances around the video,” Trooper David McGarvey,…”

    Translation: “We’re too STUPID to see what’s OBVIOUS in the video, because we haven’t figured out a way to JUSTIFY it yet. But we’re working on that.”

    Makes people more inclined to want to FoS on the PoS.
    They better stop themselves, or will be stopped the OUCH way.
