‘His Hands Were Already Tied’ Video Shows Cops Hold Down Man as Fellow Cop Smashes in His Head

New York, NY — A disturbing video has sparked an internal investigation within the NYPD after it showed three cops hold down a man with his hands behind his back while one of them pummelled his face.

The video is taken from inside a bus across the street and starts out as the cop begins smashing in the man’s face. “Why are you hitting him?” the person filming asks. “He hit him in his face!” she said. “His face is bleeding!”

After the officer punches the man in the face several times, he then proceeds to start slapping him. All the while, it appears that the man is not resisting at all. This is evidenced by the fact that the female officer and the other male officer (who aren’t doing the punching) are calmly squatting down by the man.

While the audio of the police and the man is difficult to hear, we can hear one phrase that the man seems to be repeating. “What are you doing?” begs the man as two cops hold him down while the other digs his face into the asphalt.

The incident happened on the morning of New Year’s Eve around 10:00 am. The woman who posted the video, Alexas Jasmin, explained what she saw in her post.

Jasmin noted that the man was sitting in his car following an encounter with the police. According to Jasmin, police were “getting ready to pull off” just before changing their minds and approaching the man.

“Granted the man did stick his head out the window and say a few choice words,” she wrote. “But please tell me why the cops got out the van, snatched him out of his car and proceeded to do this to him.”

“This is exactly why i [sic] hate the police,” she added. “His hands were already tied and he kept hitting the man in the face until bloody. RIDICULOUS!!”

According to the Gothamist, who reached out to the NYPD, the NYPD did not confirm the man’s name, why police stopped him, or whether he had been arrested or charged. A spokesperson said only, “The matter is under internal review.”

    Hey Matt, You are a former USMC intelligence officer, how would you suggest searching a combative suspect? Give me some unique insight.

    • Lord Humungus

      Are you honestly stupid enough to need instruction on how to search someone that’s bound and proned out without beating them… you are pathetically retarded.

      • doucyet

        Apparently you missed the combative part of the question. You do realize that I can kick your teeth out while laying on the ground even with someone on top of me, right?

        • billdeserthills

          I still think you’d be kicking the teeth in

        • Josh Cairns

          he’s face down!? and where are you getting this ‘combative’ from?

          • doucyet

            Face down and continues to resist. Did you watch the clip?

          • Josh Cairns

            Yes of course i did! what do you see in the clip that could possibly constitute as resisting? your comments imply that he is combative and could possibly do the cops harm.. how are you possibly coming to this conclusion?

          • doucyet

            Watch the first few seconds of the video again, he is clearly resisting.

          • D-Man

            Not resisting, defending. Learn the difference.

            Last time I checked, further escalating a situation isn’t how you defuse it. The sooner police learn this, the sooner they will build some semblance of trust in the community.

          • doucyet

            Resisting is fighting, learn the difference. There is nothing to “defuse” when a person is resisting arrest “bro”. He’s fighting, and the end result is, he will be handcuffed. They don’t need your trust, they need you to follow the law.

  • David Daisy May Boldock

    Nasty piece of work. He needs to meet his match down a dark alley. Been all the same if he was a haemophiliac and he bled to death. Still that would not bother these scum.

    Sticks & Stones (BOOTS) will break your bones, but words will never hurt you! The cop was hurt!

  • doucyet

    Hey Matt………….Watch the video again.

    His hands were not already tied! And he most certainly did not get his “head smashed in”.
    If you’ll notice he was not cuffed when the video first starts. They get him cuffed shortly after the sweeper passes by and upon cuffing him he isn’t struck again. It’s called resisting arrest and a smack on the head will cause a person to stop doing that.

    Your sensational headlines grab attention, but are “exaggerated”.

    • Josh Cairns

      only in America could you find people willing to justify a man with three cops on his back hands by his sides being cracked in the face because he was not yet cuffed as ‘resisting….’

      • doucyet

        Only in America would you find people that think they can fight the cops as if it’s some sort of “right” that they have.

        • Josh Cairns

          Of course i watched the video!! there’s literally no indication in the slightest he was willing to fight the cops!! he just takes blows to the face? surely if he was indeed resisting they would have struggled to cuff him while that was going on!

          • doucyet

            Watch the first few seconds of the video again, he is clearly resisting. After the sweeper passes by it’s all click bait hype which many people fall for.

          • Jason Werner

            You are pathetic. I hope you swallow some teeth while pleading, ” no guys, I’m one of you.” Go step on a land mine.

          • doucyet

            It’s the entitled, blameless, irresponsible, disrespectful, loud mouth, know it all, drunk child in many people that get them into this sort of trouble. And a simple citation turns ugly. Like this……


          • D-Man

            This is America, bro. We get to stand up for ourselves if we feel like we are being mistreated by authority (well maybe not pissants like you, but the rest of us.) The NYPD and other infamous police departments in the ‘States are renowned for artificially escalating situations to trigger people’s innate fight-or-flight responses as an excuse to let the bullets. Also, last time I checked, being an “entitled, blameless, irresponsible, disrespectful, loud mouth, know it all, drunk child” wasn’t punishable by a beating. These cops need to STFU and know their role: bringing a suspect before a judge.

          • doucyet

            And they do! Sometimes though when a person resists “bro” they have to rough them up a bit.

          • D-Man

            No they don’t. They choose to. Keep in mind this is the NYPD we’re talking about, one of the most notoriously discriminatory and unnecessarily violent police forces in the world. A federal judge even called them out for their racist “stop and frisk” policies, and the commissioner responded by throwing a temper tantrum on national TV. I don’t know about other states, but Stop and Frisk turned annoying cops into hated bullies. Maybe I’m being naive, maybe they were always hated and I didn’t know, but I do know that when Giuliani took over, cops became just another gang. Maybe it’s time we had another 9/11 to thin these fuckers out?

          • doucyet

            Maybe it’s time you go to the city to get the laws changed. The city passes the laws, not the police. Your “answer” seems to be to blow shit up, good luck with that.

            That’s precisely why I need to cut this “conversation” short! Thanks for the reminder…

          • Traci Eccles

            My pleasure… I’m happy to Twain you anytime! 😉

          • doucyet

            You said: “Maybe it’s time we had another 9/11 to thin these fuckers out”

            Now that I’ve read you comment again………….that is just asinine! The people that died in the towers were civilians!! How stupid are you???

          • David Bollinger

            It is the natural response to aggression and overpowering fear for ones safety. Fight or flight is a human reflex, resisting arrest is a legal term that has been used over and over to justify a damn good beating. The bully cop is bad but your defense of this “bad apple” is a shame.

          • doucyet

            “Natural response”! Your kidding right? My natural response is to use my head to get out of a bad situation, fight of flight is the reaction of an animal.

          • Guy

            Oh Really ? Let’s see ! An ape is and animal, dog’s too, so are whales (mammals) horses, cows, chickens, ducks, so by that definition, we are all animals. The only difference I see is that they, have enough common sense to get out of harm’s way when it approaches, and you don’t ! Because you will just stand there, while shouting loud, about you god given rights, and how smart you are, while using your head !
            Don’t look now Bozo ! But, your pants are on fire !

          • doucyet

            Stop drop and roll………..don’t run!

          • Charles Tate Jr.

            This dude is obviously law enforcement/ or relative of one. No use trying to argue with someone that sees no wrong in beating up a defenceless man being held down by 2other officers. That’s 3against one. Y’all go around preaching that violence is not the way, yet that’s the first thing y’all law enforcement officers resort to. Hypocritical!

          • doucyet

            Don’t resist…….pretty simple concept right!

          • David Bollinger

            We humans are simply an upright animal with a brain bigger than our hearts. You may use your head to dodge pain and fear or is it easier to use a defenseless head to fight your limp noodle fears?
