More than 300,000 people have watched the 51-minute disturbing video showing two Montgomery County Police officers interacting with a 5-year-old boy at East Silver Spring Elementary School who walked out of the building.

In the police body camera video, you can see a police officer handcuff the child, scream in the student's face and talk about beating him.

“Shut that noise up now! Boy, I'm telling you! I hope your momma lets me beat you,” says one of the police officers.

Tuesday afternoon during a Montgomery County Council meeting, Montgomery County Police Chief Marcus Jones confirmed that it took investigators more than six months to wrap up the department's internal investigation.

“So the event took place in January 2020. It was reported that the officers were not interviewed until August. Why would that be?” asks Montgomery County Councilmember Tom Hucker.
“Again the interrogations of officers occur after the very end when investigators conclude all their interviews with other witnesses and collected all the evidence,” says Montgomery County Police Chief Marcus Jones.

The 7News I-Team has learned that the police department doesn’t do random reviews of body cam video, and the school resource officer assigned to a cluster of schools including East Silver Spring wasn’t alerted during the incident.


“In your personal opinion is there any reason that any adult lets set this situation aside any adult should scream at the top of their lungs inches from a child’s face for any reason?” asks Montgomery County Councilmember Will Jawando.
“No,” says Chief Jones.

Chief Jones did say disciplinary action has been taken on each officer. Both remain on the job.
