Video Shows Questionable Treatment of Veteran By Police

On Sunday, Jamie Price, a Navy veteran, asserts that he was a victim of police brutality in Chicago. His neighbor, Jason Williams, filmed part of the altercation on his cell phone. The video shows police holding Price down, one officer standing on top of him and another possibly kicking him. Price claims that he was involved in a minor car accident with an unidentified man in an alley near his home. Price exchanged his information with the man. Then, a police officer arrived at the scene and asked for Price's ID.

Price told My Fox Chicago, "I give the cop my ID and he had me place my hands on the hood of his car. So he patted me down, searched me and then he proceeded to put me in cuffs." Price then asked why he was being handcuffed when he said the officer "Slams me on the ground, punches me in my face. I had glasses on." On the other hand, the other driver told WGN news that the cop ordered Price to stop his car while he was backing up, and Price shoved the officer. Price denies this. Price said that as more officers arrived to tase him, he tried to run for his life. Price went on to say "I had a guy kicking me in the head and I had a guy kick me in the genitals twice. I wasn't fighting with them. I was like this is not an arrest. You guys are beating me."

Price's mother, Rose Benton, says she tried to tell the police to stop beating her son, and they told her to shut up. Price also noted that he did not receive medical treatment for his several injuries and blood in his urine. The Chicago Police department issued this statement:

"The department is aware of the video and the matter is actively under investigation by (The Independent Police Review Authority). If it is determined that the involved officers did not follow proper department procedures and guidelines, they will be subject to disciplinary action."
