Footage from Baltimore’s Vanguard Middle School, showing an officer assaulting a 13-year-old girl with a baton, has surfaced – and it’s disturbing.
The incident, which involved two other girls, left the young women hospitalized with injuries. The clip (above) shows Starr, one of the middle-schoolers, arguing with the officer. Moments later, her cousin Diamond approaches the situation, making contact with the officer. He then chases her down and strikes her twice with the baton.
Diamond suffered a bloody head injury, leaving her with 10 stitches.
The two other girls were pepper sprayed. All of the young ladies were charged for assaulting the officer but charges were dropped after prosecutors saw the chilling footage. They were also suspended and sent to alternative schools.
Their attorney is currently working on changing that. We will keep you updated on the latest.
