Orange, NJ — A disturbing video of a large cop manhandling two twin sisters outside of a restaurant just after school had let out has provoked protests and the suspension of an Orange police officer.

On Thursday, two sisters were outside of the restaurant when the Orange police officer approached them. While the nature of the stop was unclear, the officer’s actions seem entirely apparent. As the sisters talked he grabbed them both by the hair, threw them to the ground, pushed, kneed, and held them down for seemingly no reason.

In a statement released just after midnight Friday, the Orange Police Department and Mayor Dwayne Warren said the officer in the videos, Hanifah Davis, “has been relieved of duty pending the outcome of an investigation.” Protests almost immediately ensued as a result of the officer’s actions.

Multiple videos captured the violence unfold as Davis slammed one of the sisters into the window and then grabbed the other. While being shoved to the concrete, the sisters do appear to struggle but pose no threat to the officer who is twice their size.

The officer’s actions were so outrageous that the Vice Principal from the school nearby—who knew the two students—came over to intervene.

The video was posted to Instagram with the following description about the vice principal’s role and how the officer and his fellow cops reacted.

So, the man (the VP) arrested in this video is a family member of mine. This incident occurred shortly after school was let out this afternoon. The vice principal was coordinating traffic when all of the sudden he heard students screaming his name in front of a pizzeria down the street from the high school. He ran over to this scene, an officer throwing down and striking two teenaged twin sisters. Naturally, he told the officers “I’m a vice principal at the high school, these are my students. What’s going on here?” to which he was told, “Mind your fucking business and back up, we’re not on school grounds.” He repeatedly pleaded with the offending officer to stop assaulting these two girls, and tell him what the problem was. At this point the officer pushed him away from the scene and punched him in the face before arresting him, as well as both girls. He was later released without being charged, the girls were released as well but I’m not sure if they ended up receiving any charges.
I can’t divulge any further details due to legality but that’s all the setup for this video.

According to many on Facebook, the principal was arrested for intervening, however, the mayor released a statement late Thursday confirming that he was only cited.

“Contrary to rumors on social media, an Orange Board of Education staff member was not arrested; he was issued a ticket and the issuance of that ticket is part of the investigation,” the city said in the statement.

According to, a spokeswoman for the school district did not immediately respond to a request for comment Friday morning.

The Orange Police Department and Essex County Prosecutor’s Office are investigating the incident, the statement said. A prosecutor’s office spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment, the newspaper reported.

In an attempt to calm the subsequent unrest by local citizens who took to protesting the incident, the mayor released the following statement.

“This matter is being taken seriously by the Orange Police Department and the Warren Administration. All the facts will be shared with the public as soon as they are available. Meanwhile, the OPD and Mayor Dwayne D. Warren ask that citizens withhold judgment and act responsibly until all the facts are known, at which time the Administration will take all appropriate action,” the statement read.

Below is one of the many videos of the incident. It was posted with the following description:

Officer Davis, an Orange, NJ police officer first mush me in the chest, then grabbed me by my arm and I yanked away. Then he physically violated my two twin cousins. This ain’t even all of of it! They were punched on as if they were grown men. One twin have a black eyes and they other one have a busted knee. When my mom pulled up, she tried to get the officers off of her, he told her that she’d get locked up if she didn’t move. He even fought our assistant principal! He did it out of spite! This is the same police officer that pulled us over in a Uber last night, telling the Uber driver his light was broke, when nothing was wrong with the light. I believe he did it because he didn’t have a legitimate reason to charge the Uber diver last night, so he took his anger out physically! 

Hee is the other video in which the principal is seen stepping in to stop the violence.

In another video, we see what appears to be the girls’ braids on the ground after the officer apparently pulled them from their heads.

        • My miss-spelling may be off as well as the years too, but the term still applies, no matter what century you may be in, because ignorance and racism knows nothing about time. Dose it !

          • Muslims are typically non-white. Islam doesn’t have to be a race for anti-Muslim crap to be racist.
            If I instituted a policy of discriminating against red-heads (not a race), people named “Chad” (not a race), and people who get sunburns easily (not a race), would you consider that discriminatory against white people? Hint: it would be.

          • Geez, you morons who matriculate at today’s modern leftwing-polluted colleges all talk like the Borg. You have no ability to think whatsoever. Here’s a ‘hint’ for you: discriminatory and racist are not synonyms, in spite of what your favorite professor told you in African studies. And no, “non-white” and “red-head” are not races, either. Calling Muslims what they are, violent, uncivilized barbarians at war with all non-Muslims, has nothing to do with race. It’s just fact. People like you just enjoy tossing the word ‘racist’ into every conversation because it makes you feel special.

          • The Borg? What, because you’re original? Your opinions are literally the boilerplate for a closeted suburban white guy with a Really Interesting Perspective™ and a low-traffic blog.

            No shit, I never said they were synonymous. But if a policy discriminates on the basis of race, it’s racist. Look it up. Call a friend, inbred or otherwise. I’ll wait.

            “And no, “non-white” and “red-head” are not races, either.”
            No. Shit. But discriminating against either would be racist.

            “Calling Muslims what they are, violent, uncivilized barbarians at war with all non-Muslims, has nothing to do with race. It’s just fact.”

            Counterpoint: Americans are violent barbarians at war with Muslims.

            Good luck with the radio show.

          • I don’t know who taught you all that nonsense but you should track them down and slap them. Racism is a word with a specific meaning and not liking red-heads is not one of those meanings.

          • Just another moron who doesn’t realize that the Muslim religion is the most widely practiced religion in the world and that most violent crimes in this country happen at the hands of white males. Yes the Quran is very sexist and sometimes calls for extreme actions but the Bible is no different. Neo nazis site the Bible for defense of the white race. The US has hundreds of years of citing the Bible to defend slavery and segregation. I think the group you are trying to blame are extremist jihadist groups (ie. ISIS). Fanaticism of any religion has had violent results throughout history. The Christian and Catholic religions being the worst perpetrators.

          • Quick fact check: number of Christians in the world=2.3 billion, number of Muslims=1.8 billion. And if that’s not enough, number of Christians in the world who are forced to be Christians=0, number of Muslims forced to be Muslims under fear of death=most of them. Get back to me when you acquire at least a tentative connection to reality.

          • Fact check: your still a fucking moron. Islam is the most WIDELY PRACTICED religion in the world. As in it has the largest spread of people that actively practice on a daily basis. Christianity is made up of a lot of people who just ” are Christian”. Second fact, when the US was being established natives were forced to convert to Christianity. Actually forced conversion to Islam is a relatively new thing considering the Quran says that no one should be forced to practice a religion. The Christians during Roman times and the Middle Ages carried out huge campaigns of forced religion that pale in comparison to what jihadist Islam’s have done. So please, get back to me when you at least acquire a tentative grasp on history.

          • “The Christians during Roman times and the Middle Ages carried out huge campaigns of forced religion that pale in comparison to what jihadist Islam’s have done.” Um, I don’t think that sentence means what you think it means. But if that is what you meant, I agree with you. (This is why it’s so tiring debating with Muslims and leftists: I not only have to write my comments, I have to rewrite theirs because they’re all so damn stupid.)

          • Wow, you really think you’re god’s gift to the right don’t you. Excuse me for my typo. Typical right wing argument. Take an obvious grammatical error and use it to make a moot point. Jihadist Islam pales in comparison to what the Christians have done as far as forced religion is concerned but you already knew this which is why you had no substantial rebuttal, just another childish attack. Give yourself a pat on the back. (This is why it’s so tiring arguing with ignorant morons such as yourself, you can’t use context clues to realize there’s a grammatical error, instead you just think the author doesn’t know what “pale in comparison” means and you use that to attack religions and political views. Great argument. This is why your side makes zero progress without having to resort to scare tactics. Sadly your side is the only side that’s scared.)

          • Don’t be angry with me because you can’t express yourself properly. As for your contention that Christians have forced more conversions than Muslims, bullshit. Pure unadulterated bullshit. EVERY SINGLE MUSLIM ON PLANET EARTH is forced to be a Muslim because conversion is considered a capital offense by Islam. Meanwhile, by way of comparison, EVERY SINGLE CHRISTIAN ON PLANET EARTH is a willing participant because that’s the only kind of follower Christianity accepts. There may have been some forced conversions to Christianity back in history, but compared to the fact that Islam rampaged through the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe forcefully converting every nation it conquered, the two religions are obviously two entirely different types of things. One is a religion that enlists converts by reason and faith, the other is a violent cult that worships death and enlists converts by force. Islam has always been about forced conversion. Always, from the beginning. You need only look around you at current events around the world to see this has not changed. Iran has people in prison sentenced to death for converting from Islam to Christianity. Cultists in Nigeria recently kidnapped a whole village of females, made them sex slaves, and forced them to become Muslims. Saudi Arabia makes owning a Bible a capital offense. Think about that. Owning a Bible. Why would they care if someone owned a book? Maybe, just maybe because the other name for that book is The Truth.

          • I get it, you’re one of those religious nutbags who likes to ignore history. So discussing the atrocities of Christianity is hopeless. Please go hang yourself. Maybe you could use your precious Bible to stand on while you attach the rope. And don’t worry, you can die knowing I’m not angry. I’m just over here laughing at your religious ignorance.

          • In other words, I gave you some facts to chew on and your best response was to puke up a bunch of childish insults. Tell you what, let’s put our competing assertions to a test: how about you pick any Christian nation in the world and I have to go there and hold up a Koran; and I’ll pick a Muslim nation and you have to go there and hold up a Christian Bible. Who do you honestly think would survive that test? Honestly. Never mind, we both know what the result would be. In fact, I could list a dozen nations and let you pick any one of them and you still wouldn’t survive. That’s how oppressive and violent Islam is.

          • I gotta admit that at least you got all the latest buzz words down pat !

            That just reminds me of all thouse PD Chiefs, who stand at there podiums with the gold stars on their lapels, as they proclaim to god and the media, often blabbing long and hard about being this and that, who like to occasionally throw in a good zinger of Transparency, Bridge Builder and Community Mindfullness.

            They put me to sleep with there spewed redrick, no one believing a word they say, and all are basically thought to be full of gas, and hot air.

            But you keeping it up, are sooner or later bound to get it right at least twice a day, with something about being compared with broken clocks.

          • I do think for myself and don’t bother with self regurgitation as you state, especially after managing to stand on my own two feet for 68 years, contrarie to your opinions. As far as being left wing or right winged ? I have managed to stand in the middle of the road most of my life, and making my own decisions whether the BS as I see it, is even worth it to be bothered with, of being pro or con. So this leads me to believe that in fact, you are being a racist bastard as I see it, by even bring up a word such as muslum to the discussion, and is like saying the Catholics Or Protestants, are the ones who are the cause of the world’s problems. So unless you put a stamp on there foreheads with a self proclaimed label, or a tattoo with numbers on the arms, how ya going to tell the difference ? What a friggin rockhead !

          • Are you seriously bragging about being “middle of the road” all your life? Good grief. I bet you were proud of being an average student in school, too. Here’s a bit of wisdom for you, middle-of-the-roader: if you don’t stand for anything, you stand for nothing.

          • Nice piece of deflection off the topic, you been taking lessons from Trump ? Besides that. I stand for more than you think I do, and a lot more than you would ever believe. As to being an average student student or not ? I graduated from UC Berkeley in 1974, with honors in Landscape Architecture.
            As to the rest of you and your BS. It is just that, and a lot more out of you that amounts to the same type of thing, that while considering the source, isn’t all that surprising !

          • OH Really !? Who would have guessed that , and how nice of you to straighten us ignorant old fools out about it all ! News Flash indeed !

      • Everything. How many Muslim cops do we need to see perpetrating violence against women before we get the message? Cripes, we just had a Muslim cop murder a woman for absolutely no reason in Minnesota. Somewhere else we just had one beat up his wife the night before graduating from the police academy.

  1. If he worked the night before… why is he on duty during the day??? He acted as if he was on something or damn near brainwashed…

    • Most officers work a 12 hour shifts, so yes he could have pulled them over the night before and then been there in the early afternoon.

  2. If you need that level of force to handle 2 teenage girls, both look 90lbs soaking wet, maybe a telemarketing job is more your speed
