Police were filmed pushing around and terrorizing a homeless little boy selling candy.
A little boy was innocently selling candy in a New York, Harlem subway line until police came.
Police started pulling and grabbing at the boy and stopped him from making sales.
The boys mother took to social media stating that they’re homeless, and the family was trying to sell candy to survive.
She’s seeking help and a lawyer after the video surfaced online.
Here’s the video:
