Hospital video shows officers tackle, tase and punch teen

A North Carolina mother is blasting law enforcement officers for their violent treatment of her son outside an emergency room during a mental health crisis. The teen is expected in court today facing four charges from the incident, including felony malicious conduct.

In surveillance video of the scene, which happened in December in Lincolnton, outside Charlotte, security guards are seen tackling the teenager. At another point, a sheriff's deputy punches him in the head while he's handcuffed, reports correspondent Don Dahler.

His mother, Jessica Long, told CBS' Charlotte affiliate WBTV that security officers and law enforcement escalated the situation instead of helping her son, who's been treated for mental illness in the past. "They did the worst; they made it worse," Long said.

The shocking video shows the moments Long's 16-year-old son, Hayden, was tackled to the ground and punched twice in the head. "They just immediately went for full-blown physical force," said Long. "And these were big guys, and my son's, what, maybe 120 pounds."

1. The KID is being charged with felonies.

Because obviously getting beaten by the cops for no appropriate reason is obviously just NOT gonna be the cops fault.

Wtf.

3. I'm sick to death

Of cops and other security people's knee jerk stupidity and abuse of the mentally ill, autistic traumatized and disabled.

The statistics are disgustingly high regarding the beatings tasings ect.
I have mental illness(trauma depression etc) and I am very wary of cops.

I hate it when I get really depressed and the cops handcuff me in the parking lot of my apartment complex,like a criminal.
Just to get help.

It's dehumanizing and scary. I wonder if people will think I'm a criminal or something.It makes me want to not call for help even though I need to get help .

So every time I ask myself can I handle being trussed up and crammed into a tiny plexiglass box with my muscles in pain and my heart pounding holding on in a panic attack until they decide to let me out of the fucking car to be put in isolation where a sitter ignores me until I get admitted somewhere,usually takes at minimum 24 hours up to three days..

It's really triggering and it does nothing but harm to me..I feel panicked being in the box in the car with my arms cuffed behind me as my nerve damage makes my muscles scream until I silently cry.

I ask them to do the cuffs looser b cause it hurts but they don't care.
I was even told to just take it.

I mean for fucks sake I have no desire to fight them it's a voluntary admission. When did this shit become the norm?
