Tuesday, August 4, 2015. New York City – Yesterday, Monday, August 3, a group of approximately 50 people gathered in front of Target in Flatbush, Brooklyn to demand justice for Alando Brissett. The mother of Alando and other family members attended the rally.
On July 25, 2015, Alando Brissett was pinned to the ground and punched by NYPD officers during his arrest at Flatbush Junction Target store.
Brissett wanted a receipt from Target, but the store refused to give him the receipt he was asking for. A Target employee called the NYPD after she and Brissett got into an argument.
Alando faces charges of trespassing, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and obstructing governmental administration.
The demonstration was organized by Equality for Flatbush : E4F.
People demand that the NYPD drop the charges against Alando Brissett immediately and hold Target and the 70th Precinct accountable for their assault of Alando Brissett.
Michael Rolland (a White man) filmed the arrest and published the video on Youtube. See the video bellow.
“NYPD 70th Precinct cops use overwhelming force to arrest young black man inside Target in Flatbush, Brooklyn, NYC. July 25, 2015, approximately 8:00 PM.”-Michael Rolland.
The 14-minute video taken by Rolland around 8pm on Saturday, July 25, has prompted an internal investigation by the NYPD, and Rolland’s girlfriend, who also lives in the neighborhood, has sent the video to the ACLU, NYCLU and Equality for Flatbush.
In the video, a group of police officers are shown holding Brissett down on the ground and punching him several times. As soon as the officers began punching the individual, concerned onlookers began crowding around the scene, demanding that the police stop hitting him.
“One person, 50 police,” one man yells in the video as the number of police officer swells.
Anita Neal, the mother of Kyam Livingston attended the rally. Kyam Livingston was a 37 year old mom. She died in Brooklyn Central Bookings on July 21, 2013, after crying out in pain for 7 hours only to have her pleas for medical attention ignored. Two years later, no one has been held accountable.
