A shocking video has surfaced in case of a resource officer from a Florida school. The school resource officer has been accused of abusing a 13-year-old black student.
The video shows Officer Mario Badia, who has been charged with child abuse, slamming the 84-pound student to the floor and twisting his wrist.
Badia was called to the lobby of Kissimmee Middle School on May 8 to handle an altercation between the boy and his mother, according to news site Click Orlando. The cop instead escalated the clash by shoving the boy, then slammed him to the floor.
As the youth was on the floor not resisting, Badia twisted his wrist for 42 seconds.
Badia was placed on paid administrative leave after his arrest.
