FOOTAGE EMERGES OF ALLEGED POLICE BRUTALITY ON JAKES GERWEL DRIVE

9887

7 May 2017, Cape Town: Wednesday night, this youngster was pulled over for not having a front number plate displayed.

Ghost squad Officer JOHN Cecil BEZUIDENHOUT decided that it was necessary to drag him out his car, pepper spray him and keep him in a choke hold until his back-up arrived as he did not have handcuffs on him.

 

The youngster was then locked up for 9hours where he was made to stand in a corner with the pepper spray still in his eyes.

While being processed John Bezuidenhout told the youngster that if he resisted arrest he would have shot him dead as he always keeps “one up”.

He suffered from a dislocated shoulder, trauma to his upper torso and an infection in his eye.

He appeared in court the following afternoon where the case was dismissed due to it being futile.
