The Daily News reported:
A Bronx teen said two cops roughed him up when he mouthed off after one of them stepped in a pile of dog doo.
After he was beaten, according to the News, the youth, Tyre Davis, contacted Internal Affairs and the NYPD duo – Joseph Murphy, 26, and Jose Ocasio, 28 – was arrested. There’s no mention of a lawyer helping the youth. There’s no mention of how the News got the story.
But if this story is accurate, it’s impressive that this kid was savvy enough to fight to protect his rights. Hoorah!
