American Teen in Hospital with Brain Hemorrhage After Police Beat Him Up During Arrest. Hadi Abuatelah, 17, from the state of Illinois, was stopped by officers for a traffic stop.
However, things got out of hand when the officers found a semi-automatic handgun, and the boy then ran away. The officers were able to catch the boy, but images show the less positive side of the story.
Hadi was beaten black and blue by the police, forcing him to be taken to the hospital with a broken nose and a brain haemorrhage.
“Regardless of the alleged violation, this is excessive force,” said Hadi’s lawyer. “He didn’t resist at all, but he has beaten up anyway.”
