Excessive Force Against Physically Disabled Teen

Possible Violations:
  • Police Brutality
  • Universal Declaration of Human Rights (Article 5): No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.

A physically disabled young lad from Mandalay suffered from daylight police brutality while all he did was collecting the trash from protests. The 14 sec video shows he was beaten more than 10 times (including the face) from 6-7 policemen while he was doing no harm to them at all. He was screaming and begging for help and couldn’t run that fast due to the disability he has in leg. Disablity was confirmed when a generous person visited him to donate some money. They also learnt that the lad lives with his grandma and their only income is from gathering trash in the neighborhood along with the generosity of their neighbors.
