The family of a 17-year-old California student is demanding justice. This comes after the shocking video of a student in a wheelchair being brutally beat was released by the school district.
As a result, Oakland High School student Francisco Martinez returned to Children’s Hospital in Oakland Thursday evening. After the beating, Francisco has asked doctors for help managing the intense pain he’s been experiencing.
“He slapped me. He hit me so hard, it threw me out of my chair. I hit the floor with my chin first. I had a scar right here,” Martinez said, pointing to the area above his throat.
KTVU obtained surveillance video from the Oakland Unified School District. This shows the officer beating the 17-year-old special needs Francisco at Oakland High School about 9 a.m. on Monday May 19th.
