All Rights Reserved. Powered by WordPress. A Minneapolis cop was caught on video threatening a teen that he admittedly stopped for no good reason. The cop stopped the four young men after they allegedly made a U-turn in an attempt to avoid having a run-in with him. Supposedly, the boys had been stopped because the officer thought the vehicle they were riding in might have been stolen. Liban Yusuf, 18, claims that things got even more violent from there. The young men were allegedly pulled from the vehicle and placed in handcuffs while police searched the car and ran background checks on all of them. Reportedly, the boys believe they were racially profiled because they are all of Somalian descent, and they may press charges.

Police are now looking for dozens who attacked a teenager on a Crown Heights sidewalk in the middle of the day, then robbed her and took off with her shoes. Authorities have arrested "several" suspects believed to be part of a group of young people who viciously attacked a year-old girl in Brooklyn, chasing her, beating her on the sidewalk and ripping off her sneakers and phone before running off. The girl was taken to a hospital in stable condition following the disturbing attack on Utica Avenue in Crown Heights Thursday. She was later released, and was recovering at home. Jarring surveillance video shows the moment the group of at least a half-dozen young people catch up to the girl. One shoves her to the ground; other suspects run up to her as she holds herself in a ball on the ground. Another six or so young people then run up and start stomping on the girl while she's on the ground. They kick her; they punch her.
