CROWN HEIGHTS, Brooklyn (PIX11) -- Yet another video depicting a young teenager in a violent encounter with cops has surfaced. This time, Kahreem Tribble seems to surrender before two police officers attack him.
"I can't stop thinking about it," says Keturah Tribble, Kahreem's mom."I didn't see the video, I don't want to see the video."
The family of the 16-year-old hired an attorney to file a lawsuit and take a closer look at what happened to their son.
"He put his hands up and somebody threw a punch? That's how the cops run these days? ... I saw the tape, that's when I really couldn't believe what I saw," said Thomas Stephens, Kahreem's dad.
The incident happened on Sept. 29 in Crown Heights and involved officers from the 77th Precinct.
This week, PIX 11 received another video of cops using excessive force from the same precinct -- this time, they're accused of pushing a woman and using a chokehold on her friend.
PBA President Pat Lynch said that in Kahreem's case, the video doesn't show what the teen was doing before.
"My client was on his way home," said Kahreem's lawyer. "That's what happened. Nothing more, nothing less."
The attorney also said the teen was unarmed, despite allegations from the police.
It turns out the two officers involved have a history of using excessive force.
All charges have been dropped against Kaheen. Now, his parents just want these officers off the streets.
"We want justice for our son."
