Attorney for the teenager.
Shawna what happened here what that preceded that it's and we saw.
Jane it's it's almost unbelievable how little.
-- walk past this police officer and the police officer said.
Talk in your caffeine sure hurt and it shouldn't -- what is it that to a young -- -- if they're required to have shirts tucked it at school that's part of the policy would.
The that this students at this school for special needs kids are required.
To have their shirts tucked in so the police officer said that to -- John.
And Marchand said now.
And then the police officer said we'll go to the principal's office and Marchand said OK and that's where we was headed.
Where bed as your viewers can see then the police officer then I jumped -- and rammed him into the wall again pinned him down on the ground and -- just trying to get tell.
A little bit plugs into that locker so from what -- -- he's always try these five.
God I'm so -- he's five foot 640.
Pound this is this is that this is a small this is a small young man no match for this police officer.
So he wasn't doing anything to provoke this police officer he didn't use any curse words.
-- but he did not at all and you can see on the video.
That he was trying physically to move away from the officer he was trying physically.
To get out of the -- his way -- avoid him and the officer ran her ran him down and came up behind him.
Interesting -- -- your client the boy ate it up -- the police department.
They they arrested him -- Had it not been for this video.
Certainly -- would have been arrested and charged with a crime the crime of assaulting or battering a police officer in it was only when the -- police realized.
A that this video was available and others would be able to see it that it would be stupid was charged -- with a crime.
What happened to the -- We understand that the police officers no longer with the -- police.
Whether he was disciplined whether he was fired whether he is still functioning as a police officer.
We don't know when we file the case will figure that out one of the reasons why.
We want to bring this everyone's attention is this guy obviously doesn't deserve to be a police officer much less.
In a school supposedly to protect developmentally disabled kids we want.
This cop brought to justice.
We want a criminal prosecution brought against this police -- -- -- he did as well.
How were suing the police officer yes as well as will be filing the case next week but it'll certainly be -- against this officer.
Probably also the city of dog and possibly even the school -- obviously the school's job to protect this young man Marchand and it didn't.
And his injuries and -- he got a broken husband he's okay right.
Well two categories -- -- one is broken nose conclusions in the face those have largely.
Resolve themselves so that's very good.
But beyond this -- history tells you that this young man now is going to be afraid of police officers for a long time maybe the rest of his life.
He may have problems with authority he's got an emotional problem now that it's going to take some time.
To try to fix but the other thing as I say beyond.
Trying to address -- -- injuries with this case we want to bring attention to the fact.
That there's this rogue cop who may himself be a criminal based on what we see in the video -- And we want law enforcement authorities to deal with this that's the most serious aspect we believe -- this problem.
-- one last question for -- I understand that you got a call from the FBI.
About an hour ago got a department from a representative of the FBI and Department of Justice civil rights division.
That is investigating this as a possible abuse of march on civil rights we were very gratified to hear that we hope it's a thorough.
Investigation we hope it results in the prosecution of this police off.
