Another video of vicious police misconduct has surfaced the Internet following the knocking out of an unarmed teen by NYPD.

Via NYMag:

The family of 17-year-old Marcel Hamer has released a cell-phone clip of a plainclothes New York City police officer hitting the teen while he lies in the gutter pleading one afternoon over the summer. Lawyers for Hamer say their client was suspected of smoking marijuana, but was ultimately just charged with disorderly conduct. “Mister, it was just a cigarette, sir,” says Hamer in the video, right before a partially obscured strike that appears to leave him unconscious.

“Do you wanna get fucked up?” the officer says. “Yeah, get it on film,” he tells the boy’s friends.

The news comes days after the equally brutal gun-bashing of Brooklyn teen Kahreem Tribble by New York’s finest.

According to Hamer’s family, the teen has suffered from memory loss, dizziness and headaches ever since the encounter. The June 4 incident is currently “under investigation” by the NYPD’s Internal Affairs Bureau.
