NJ Police Officer Arrested And Charged With Assault For Beating Black Teen

Joseph Reiman, a 31-year-old Carteret, New Jersey police officer has been arrested and charged for allegedly assaulting and injuring a Black teenager.

According to prosecutors, Officer Reiman was following the 16-year-old in his police cruiser last week when the teen’s vehicle crashed. After the car accident, Reiman allegedly kicked and hit the teen numerous times.

NBC News reported that the officer did not take the teen to the hospital or call for an ambulance following the encounter. Although Reiman’s body camera was not on during the incident, the dashboard camera on his patrol car captured footage of what took place.

The officer faces charges that include third-degree aggravated assault and second-degree official misconduct. An investigation into the incident is ongoing. Meanwhile, Reiman is suspended without pay.

ABC News reported that the teen’s family, who posted images of his injuries on social media, plans on taking legal action.

“The conduct engaged in by this Officer Reiman far exceeded the force that was necessary to do anything, it’s our opinion that there was no force necessary,” the family’s lawyer told the outlet in a statement.

The teen has been released from the hospital.

Was the young victim told WHY he was being followed? I hope his parents take that cop for ALL he is worth.

When people start picking the police off one by one and their families for their rogue and heathen ways I hope that lawyer keeps that same energy!! What makes Edomites think they can keep up their evil, Animalistic , barbaric, and vandal ways. I hope someone is just more successful and prepared next time they take them on at their station🤬

Rogue police who carry the mantle of generational racism expect Blacks to speak with respect to them. Blacks were once lynched for not saying yes sir or no sir . Law enforcement will need to remove this ilk from their ranks. This activity has already caused the deaths of police….Remember Baton Rouge and Dallas? This madness must stop!!!!

5/21/19. The young man was treated physically abusive. In the footage you see a grown officer beating him with his club. Full swing. Kid on ground. This is totally WRONG. This officer Should be suspended w/o pay. He should be prosecuted to fullest extent of the Law. Parents. Definitely sue. I hope we learn more details like why he was being pulled over and what caused him to crash. The Truth of the full Story must come out. Detonate Predjudice and White priveledge attitude being Exerted here.

This is child abuse. If a parent were to beat their 16 year old, CPS would remove the child and the parent would be charged. Police shouldn’t and thankfully in this case get a free pass to beat our children.

There will be no Justice until white people are dealt with in the same manner.

The action is unbecoming of an officer and suspended without pay. That’s the punishment he’s getting now. Hopefully, I do mean it that way. This foul man is arrested and prosecuted and fired.

Make him a poster child of bad rouge cops. ”Look what can happen to you when you do dirt”. This man shouldn’t be able to get another job ever in any law enforcement. He should do jail time, and in civil court, after the city’s pays up he needs to pay up…

And be placed maybe on probation for 30 years to work with the prison population and teach them how not to get caught with rouge bad cops. On an educational programs.

Make him pay back his time to society by helping the same people he oppressed. Then maybe others like him would get it.

Every day, some maladjusted racist, trigger-happy cop disgraces the uniform by their abusive power over the vulnerable. Every day that police precincts fail to weed out their mindless “rotten apples” the municipalities must face expensive lawsuits caused by these out-of-control KKK bigots masquerading as police officers. All over this nation, law enforcement needs to clean up its act if it ever expects to regain the community trust and respect.

Imagine you’re in a car accident and instead of being taken to the hospital you’re beat up by the police. F the cops.

A police officer might have beat him but it wasn’t the one in the pic posted. If this is fake news we need to stop crying wolf!!! Because this is why they get away with actual beatings and killings people stop believing what they read and it’s real sad when it’s the truth. You getting people mad for the wrong reasons. This will only get more of us killed for misinformation. Check sources before posting/reading things that are detrimental to people’s lives. Like I said he probably did get beat and that’s messed up but I know for a fact it wasn’t by the cop on the post..
