The mayor, police chief, and police department all stated that the officer had his knee on his shoulder when the video clearly shows that the knee is on his neck and they are lying and covering up police brutality in order to protect the officer from being charged with a crime.
Police assault 16-year-old black boy in Wilmington, Delaware. Two black females were arguing/screaming with each other and the 16 year old black boy got in between them so that they wouldn’t fight. Someone called the police and the Wilmington PD responded. When the cops arrived he tried to walk away but the officer told him to come here but the boy said, “I’m not fucking with you”. The officer said, “You’re not gonna fucking disrespect me.” and proceeded to grab the boy and slam him to the ground and put his knee on the boys neck. The boy was face down on the ground and Police officers James Coffiey had his knee in the boys neck for over 26 seconds (from the start of the video to end).
