Handcuffed teen Dragged round by way of Hoodie As law enforcement officials attempt to scouse borrow child’s phone for Recording

 An Ohio cop will start a 60-day unpaid suspension today in an act of swift but limited accountability for an event that unfolded last week. Mansfield law officer Jordan Moore was seen on video dragging a handcuffed teen around by his hoodie for absolutely no other reason than to meted out punishment.

While many claim Moore should be facing criminal charges, and he should, the speed at which he was issued a suspension is encouraging. only too often, we see similar incidents during which cops sit on paid leave for months and even years as their excessive force is “investigated.”

On Monday, Mansfield captain Keith Porch said Moore was found to possess violated departmental policy referring to the treatment of individuals while in custody and unsatisfactory performance after an interior review of the incident.

Whether or not a criminal investigation is happening is unclear.

The incident unfolded on Oct. 12 during the arrest of Dwaine Chapman on charges of menacing, battery, and intoxication. Chapman had allegedly threatened to possess his dog attack his roommate while drinking.

As police were taking Chapman into custody, a struggle unfolded and therefore the teen, Chapman’s son, walked up to the cruiser but never touched or otherwise interfered with the arrest.

When the 17-year-old teen crossed the road to test on his father, his friend said he pulled out his phone and commenced recording.

Without warning officer, Moore tackled the teenager to the bottom.

“He went over there originally to travel check on him then the peace officer ran up behind him and tackled him,” said the teenager.

The boy repeatedly tells Moore that he's not resisting, but the officer couldn’t have cared less. When Moore notices the opposite teen filming across the road, he grabs the 17-year-old by the hood on his sweatshirt and drags him behind the squad car.

“When they saw me recording, they tried to tug him behind the car so I wouldn’t comprehend,” said the teenager.

Showing just how interested they were in covering up this act of brutality after the handcuffed boy was assaulted, another officer is seen on video telling the teenager who was recording the incident he was visiting take his phone.

Luckily for the family, the teenager refused and put the video on Facebook thus resulting in the officer’s suspension.

“Throwing him to the bottom on his head and on his shoulder so tossing him around sort of a dolly while he’s already cuffed and it’s on the tape, and dragging him by the collar of his shirt to the purpose he’s being choked? I want that’s excessive force and he’s a minor,” said Krystal McKinney, the boy’s mother, last week after the arrest.

And now, the police officer agrees.

“It was found that Officer Moore grabbed the hooded sweatshirt of a juvenile detainee out of the blue or instruction to befits orders and dragged him several feet, while he was still handcuffed and in an exceedingly seated position to the rear passenger side of a machine, in a shot to help the opposite officers with the adult arrestee,” Porch wrote within the release.

“Officer Moore’s response was found to be improper which resulted within the misapplication of force used on an individual that was handcuffed, in custody, and offering no resistance,” Porch continued.

Despite the opposite officers refusing to step in and stop Moore from abusing a handcuffed teen, they're going to face no discipline.

“Officer (Nicholas) Stevens and Officer (Thayne) Telquist face no disciplinary action. because the criminal charges, during this case, are still pending, I cannot comment further until the cases are resolved within the appropriate court,” Porch said.

According to the Mansfield News Journal, Moore has faced a minimum of three misconduct complaints in about two years on the force. one among the complaints includes beating another 17-year-old black teenager,

Moore’s 60-working day suspension will last from Oct. 20, 2020, until January 11, 2021, and can also include additional training.
