A recent video caught a group of Seattle police officers kicking a young Latino man in the head and stomping on his legs while he was laying face down on the ground.
One officer, Det. Shandy Cobane can be heard saying “I'll beat the f---ing Mexican piss out of you, homey. You feel me?”
The man was not under arrest and was not resisting the police officers in any way. Eventually the police, who were looking for a robbery suspect, realized they had stopped the wrong person and let the young man leave on his own.
Det. Cobane has been reassigned and the police are “investigating” the assault but so far no officer has been arrested or fired for the racist attack.
If a young Latino man was caught on video kicking a police officer in the head any “investigation” would happen with the suspect behind bars. This case should be no different.
Sign this petition and tell the Seattle Police to fire and arrest Det. Cobane and the other officers involved immediately.
