A police officer in Michigan has been fired after body cam video showed him punching a mentally ill 13-year-old teen, who was handcuffed at the time, according to Local 4 News.
The Albion Police Department arrested Da’veon Cieslack on November 24, 2018, after his grandmother called 911, saying that the child was acting unruly. He was handcuffed and placed in the back of a police cruiser.
The newly released video shows Cieslack pleading with officers to be let go.
“I’ll do anything,” Cieslack says. “I’ll even clean up the police cars for you guys. I’ll do anything.”
He then starts banging his head, prompting an officer to open the door to stop him. Cieslack appears to try to get out of the vehicle as officer try to stop him.
One officer, who has not been identified, can be seen punching the boy at least 7 times. The police department said in a press release that “the involved Officer was found to have violated several Department policies which warranted termination of employment.”
Cieslack was charged with resisting and obstruction, and been in a juvenile detention facility since the night of the incident, Local 4 News reported.

Trump continues a conspiracy that never ended as he covers up the cover up of a crime
It’s hard to know where to begin discussing the president’s commutation of Roger Stone’s sentence. So let’s start with what it means. It’s not a pardon. Donald Trump’s goombah is still a felon convicted of witness tampering and lying to the US Congress. He plans to appeal the guilty verdict. “Commutation” merely means he won’t go to jail.
The move was widely expected in Washington. Only the timing was in doubt. The president had hoped to wait until after the election, according to Bloomberg News, but Stone appears to have forced his hand. He feared prison would expose him to the new coronavirus, which can be fatal to people his age (67). Stone told a journalist Thursday that he believed the president would commute his sentence, because he stayed quiet while under pressure to cooperate. That statement, given the day before his 40-month sentence was to begin, was widely interpreted to mean: do it now or I start singing.
CNN host goes off on Trump as COVID-19 surges: ‘The president is peddling debunked illogical crap’
During a segment on CNN this Monday, anchor Brianna Keilar had some harsh words for President Trump and his response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, starting out by saying that the U.S. is "losing its battle" against the virus.
"...the people who are supposed to be in charge of the national response to the pandemic instead are escalating their attacks on doctors," she said, pointing out that up to 60,000 Americans are testing positive for the virus, each day.
"They're doing this even though they won't mandate the use of masks which are proven to save lives," she said. "They're doing this because the President is continuing to make claims that the only reason the U.S. has a surge in cases is because of an increase in testing."
WATCH: White House uses Fauci’s words to praise Trump – hours after trashing him
Literally hours after providing reporters with a list of what an anonymous White House official called mistakes Dr. Anthony Fauci has made over the year on coronavirus, the White House turned the tables to use the veteran immunologist's words to praise President Donald Trump.
On Sunday in a statement to CNN the White House outlined "the number of times Dr. Fauci has been wrong on things."
Calling it a "new campaign of deception," CNN reported Monday morning that "the White House is trying to destroy the reputation of one of America's most respected public servants, Dr. Anthony Fauci, for telling the truth about how bad things are getting."
