The University of Missouri has been in the news over the past few days for all the wrong reasons, as former school president Tim Wolfe resigned following heat from the student body over racist unjust, but a new video just surfaced that the Columbia police department might want to address—because it’s fucking nuts.
The video shows a male victim calmly talking to officers at the front door of a house that was, reportedly, having a party on Halloween, with cops responding to a noise complaint around 2 or 3 in the morning.
While there might have been a fiesta earlier, you can tell from the vid that all seemed calm and it was nothing more than a few kids hanging out and wasting the night away.
There’s no way of hearing what might have been said, but things go from zero to 100 in a hurry, as a kid wearing sweatpants gets viciously pulled from his house and taken to the front porch, where two officers restrain and cuff him as onlookers are stunned by what’s going on.
According to sources, cops believed that they “smelled weed,” which resulted in the kid getting tossed around—even though the initial call was for loud noise—which wasn’t prevalent in the video.
Again, there’s no way of knowing if there was some pot in the air or if cops just used the excuse to act like tough guys, but this is something that is another black eye on the school and the city as outrage of the university has become national news and now the city’s police department is doing shit like this.
This comes just a day after some Alabama bros experienced a similar encounter with law enforcement, and we know this is all-too-common these days.
