Cop seen punching teen with autism in California video. ‘Disturbing,’ boy’s dad says
Surveillance video shared by a California dad shows a police officer violently attack a teenager in a residential neighborhood on Wednesday.
Adam Wolf says he is worried his 17-year-old son, Preston, who has autism and ADHD, will never trust police officers again.
“I am pro police, but I am not pro ABUSE,” Wolf said on Facebook, where he posted the video. “This individual and department must be held accountable for their actions. NO child, disability or not, deserves to be treated like this.”
Police in Vacaville, about 35 miles southwest of Sacramento, said Preston Wolf was involved in a fight with a 16-year-old boy that reportedly involved a knife or pipe, according to KNTV.
