In the video, two police officers have Warryton pressed against a police vehicle. Warryton seems to be struggling with the two cops, and then one of them hits Warryton with his hand. Soon after, two other cops come to their aide and begin beating Warryton. Several baton shots send Warryton to the ground, but the officers, who are in full control of the situation at this point, continue to beat on the teen.
One of the officers strikes the young man in the head so hard that a blood splatter shoots to the ground. “Hey, yo, he’s bleeding,” someone outside of the camera’s view yells at the officers who still continue their savage beating of the young man who is clearly not resisting at this point.
“You split his f***king head,” the same voice shouts.
WATCH PHILLY COPS SEVERELY BEAT MARCUS WARRYTON
Afterward, blood covers the pavement where the young man is being beaten. The beating, which began in the middle of the street, moves toward the street curb, where officers ask Warryton to roll over on his stomach. Warryton is slow to respond.
And for good reason.
The young man is clearly dazed and unable to react, after receiving multiple baton shots to the head. Unfortunately, his slow reaction causes the cops to continue beating him for disobedience. Once the young man is completely on the ground, though, one of the officers places his foot on Warryton’s head.
