Al Sharpton Calls Out Cop Who Brutalized Teen

The Rev. Al Sharpton took great offense to an NYPD police sergeant who allegedly threw a hand-cuffed, 14-year-old boy through a plate-glass window.

“Two wrongs don’t make a right,” Sharpton said at the National Action Network’s headquarters in Harlem. “We cannot have a city where policemen come and shove handcuffed children through windowpanes.”

Javier Payne, the alleged victim, sat in a wheelchair beside Sharpton during the press conference with a white bandage across his forehead.

During the press conference, the teen lifted his T-shirt to reveal a gash in his left side — a gash that required 50 staples to close.

“This is unbelievable,” Sharpton said. “This is because he talked smart to a cop.”

Javier, who weighs 98 pounds, and a 13-year-old friend were arrested May 17 in the Belmont section of the Bronx after allegedly assaulting a 39-year-old man they had asked for a cigarette.

After being handcuffed, Javier apparently began mouthing off to 48th Precinct’s Sgt. Eliezer Pabon, sources said.

“I don’t care what he said. A police trained does not shove a handcuffed child. If you are so agitated that you can shove a handcuffed child out of anger, you ought not be on the police department,” Sharpton said.

A surveillance video captured Pabon — who was stripped of his badge and gun Friday — shoving Javier from behind through the window of the Hookah Spot on Arthur Ave.

Although Edward Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, said he has yet to see the video, he denies Pabon shoved or pushed the boy into the window. He also said the window was already damaged before it shattered.

“There was a hole with a spider web of cracks around the hole,” Mullins told The Daily News. “It wasn’t structurally sound. The sergeant is going to fully defended and the truth will come out.”

Sharpton said the brutal attack was inexcusable and said the family wasn’t making excuses for Javier’s alleged behavior.

“If he and his friend had done anything that was out of order they should be dealt with and litigated by law — not brutalized based on anger and lack of training,” said his sister, Christina Payne.

The eighth-grader underwent emergency surgery at Jacobi Medical Center and was in intensive care for four days.

“This is a difficult time,” said Christina. “I’m very upset and I just want justice for my brother, for these cops to be brought to justice.”

    Al Sharpton, like a political vampire, sucking blood from the black community. What does this man produce for a better future, other then kneejerk anger? My fellow Americans of African decent, please throw off the yoke of such idiots and get on with your lives. The Irish, Mormons, Chinese, Catholics, Vietnamese, Hispanics, Itanlians, Greeks, Idians, Pakistanies, Arabs and many other groups, races (actually, we’re all the same race, just different cultures) have grabbed the American dream and succeeded. What is your problem??? Al is one of them. After working with new imigrant West African black engineers, I’ve found they don’t slow down to put up with this non-sense. They have a family to raise and a future to build. They felt like victims in W. Africa but here they think Sharpton and his followers and leeches. Sad!

    • Mike Clancy

      Thank you, Charles. I am proud to have you as a fellow American.

      @Charles & Mike Clancy…..as Mr. Sharpton stated….2 wrongs don’t make a right. The young teenager was hand-cuffed. If this stupid cop was that damn agitated over someone bad talking him and let me (emphasized again….the teenager was hand-cuffed) then he doesn’t need to be on the police force. Obviously this stupid cop need to be thoroughly trained because the training he received was very, very sub-par. As far as Mr. Sharpton sucking the blood out of black people that’s a DAMN LIE….U people just can’t handle the TRUTH being told, in other words what Mr. Sharpton ‘spit’ out is what is right and what is wrong. This stupid cop was WRONG!!!!

    “Javier, who weighs 98 pounds, and a 13-year-old friend were arrested May 17 in the Belmont section of the Bronx after allegedly assaulting a 39-year-old man they had asked for a cigarette.”

    So this punk attacks someone for no reason and then cries like a baby when assaulted. Typical. Hey NotsoSharpton, where is your outrage for the real victim?

    • TenaGardner

      The outrage should be for both of the victims. The man that attacked by the teenager and the teenager that was attacked by the stupid cop. I bet if the teenager was your son would you be saying what you are saying……Probably NOT!!!

      • Ra Armentia

        My kids aren’t criminals. And if they ever attacked someone for no reason,I would expect them to get their butts beat. I wouldn’t cry and whine like these idiots do after committing crimes. Punishment fits the crime, and my kids have been raised to know this. But then again I am a parent to my children.

        • TenaGardner

          @Ra Armentia….how do you know this teenager’s parent or parents are not parents to him….’we’ as parents sometime can’t be and/or see what are children are doing every second/minute/hour of the day (of course) and pray and hope that he or she act like a productive citizen when ‘we’ as parents are not with them. As far as this cop or any cop slamming and/or pushing this teenager’s head into a window is and was uncalled for. If anyone is going to “hit” my child….I want it to be ‘me’ not some agitated/angry/’maybe’ racist/untrained/STUPID cop!!!!!
          Finally, I don’t condone what this teenager did….by far….BUT I also expect a cop to act like a ‘trained’ cop and obviously this cop was not ‘trained’ because of his STUPID actions:o)

  • lexie memory

    al sharpton is the only one thd haveat go to bat for the africian american community. the boy just needed to go to juvenile he’s only 13 and does not have a record. the cop needs to be fired, he has anger issues, if the boy was white he would have been fired.

    • Guest

      If the boy was white he wouldn’t have gotten himself in this mess in the first place. And if this did happen to a white boy it wouldn’t have made the news because whites don’t have an Al Sharpton runnig his mouth off…

    • Jason Robertson

      From theBlaze.com: “A 2007 special report released by the Bureau of Justice Statistics,
      reveals that approximately 8,000 — and, in certain years, as many as
      9,000 African Americans are murdered annually in the United States. This
      chilling figure is accompanied by another equally sobering fact, that
      93% of these murders are in fact perpetrated by other blacks. The
      analysis, supported by FBI records, finds that in 2005 alone, for
      example, African Americans accounted for 49% of all homicide victims in
      the US — again, almost exclusively at the hands of other African
      Americans.”

      Maybe Al Sharpton should be worried about black on black crime in the states. You never ever hear this guy talking about it, only when a white person is involved. So I would ask, who is the real racist here?

      • TenaGardner

        You DUMB F,…. Al Sharpton does speak about black on black crime all the time. Do you happen to listen to his radio show….probably not or you would know this. Also, he is putting together an agenda so there is not so much black on black crime…..Fool!!!!

        • Jason Robertson

          Typical leftist, racist reply. I quote facts, you name call. How nice. No I don’t listen to his show but I read several media news outlets every day, and the only time you hear about Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton is when race is involved. Don’t be mad at me, be mad at Al Sharpton, be mad at the black man who leaves his family, be ma at the black kids who give the African population a bad name, be mad a ghetto gangsta rap, be mad at everyone except me, I just state the facts…

    • Abigail

      If the boy was rich and white the cop would have been fired. If the boy was rich and black the cop would have been fired. An average white kid would get nothing out of it and no one would even know about it since average white kids are not allowed to have a white activist standing up for them. A similar white advocate would be called a hatemonger.

  • bahamabarney

    Al is a racist POS that goes out of his way to stir up racial unrest. He’s worse than those ambulance chasing PI attorney’s.

  • Corporatediva

    We need to STOP making excuses for our youth and their bad behavior. He was only 13 years old…..boo hoo!!! He was 13 when he was out trying to bum a smoke, he was 13 when he was out jumping on somebody. Now he is 13 with an ass whooping. If he was at home doing his home work his ass would not have been handed to him. What is Al doing? Just shifting blame….the bottom line is that if his parents had control of him the white man would have never got to him.

  • AwanderingSoul

    Al Sharpton is nothing more than a media prostitute looking for more air time. He has shown himself to be the biggest racist in America.

  • Tom

    I back the Police Officer.

    This 13 year old thug assaulted someone and then got his butt thumped by a cop because he was running his mouth. I am 50 and when I was in my teens and causing trouble my dad told me if I acted like a punk and ran my mouth to the cops I would get my ass kicked. He made it clear that he would back the cops and not me.

    Interesting how the mother is involved now but not involved enough not to raise a criminal for all of us to deal with. Mom wants a payout but didn’t care enough to raise a young man who would be an asset to the community. Just another criminal and an opportunity to “get paid”…….

    Just my opinion

    • SandS

      Al Sharpton is only in it for monetary gain.

  • willie

    have a nice twana brawley ASSHOLE

  • sharps60

    The kids a thug, the cop gets fired, game over, if Al wants to help, then mentor the thug to be productive not a Thug.. Al is a Race Baiter no more no LESS..

  • Charles

    Looks like another college scholarship is about to be presented! What a moron Sharpton is. Where would he be if the kid was white?

  • Mike Clancy

    Did “Rev” Al ever apologize for his lies in the Tawana Brawley case? Did the alleged Rev ever apologize for his lies in the Duke Lacrosse case?

    He was loud and outraged in both cases, and when both were proven to be nothing but lies, he silently disappeared. IF this turns out to be the same, you’ll never hear him apologize with this one either.

    • Jonathan

      Someone needs to speak up . Bad behavior does not condone a violent reaction on the part of the Police . In any other workplace the worker that acted out would be placed on administrative leave , sent to a therapist and possibly have his job terminated after a lengthy suspension , with no appeal . The young man’s behavior aught to be adressed appropiatly by the Criminal Justice system , not at the end of a Law Enforcement officer’s night stick .

  • ETCOSC_GO COWBOYS

    al Sharpton is a racist of the worst kind. 1. don’t bother people. 2. if you do bother people, don’t get mad when they stop you. 3. if the cuffs are on, KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!!! not the time or place. 4. raise your kids to show respect to others!!!

  • MRW

    Javier Payne probably should not have been pushed or whatever. Payne will be in prison by the time he is 20. I hope Al interviews him then.

  • ETCOSC_GO COWBOYS

    and as for that week ass bandage, that was thrown on there for the camera!!! look people, the kid studded up and got un-studded! could have been much worse! what if he had studded up to a banger?! learn your lesson kid and move on!

  • badnigel

    I wonder did the good Reverend ever so much as lift a finger about the two black boys in Georgia who shot the toddler in the face while he was in his stroller. Nope, that just got white -washed over. Somehow those black boys were the victims, not the toddler. I guess in Al’s way of thinking if the mother had had money to give them during the robbery everything would have turned out just fine. There are only three people in this world that make me sick to mu stomach and The Good Right Reverend Al is two of them !

  • Duggy Breaze

    Wounded Knee – Now that was Brutal.
    The Trail of Tears that was a Police Action as well rounding up dangerous Native Americans like the young and the old and forcing them to march from East Tennessee to Oklahoma in winter.

    We do not protest daily in the streets, we do not cry race when you treat us with disrespect like so many of the Blacks do. We stand up proud and brave and many of us left and will never return the herded wastelands that you pinned us on. It appears that so many of you Cause Lovers and Moronic Liberals forget you worked and were allowed to live as a slave, we Native Americans were hunted and executed on sight. Driven into small holes in America and watched our lands stolen, our old and young die and be killed and you want to cry about your life? Geeze people get a freaking clue would you.

    No one defends the weak and helpless better than Al, as long as they are not White, Asian, Native American or Conservative.

  • stoneloc

    more sharts spewing from al shartons orifice!!!

  • Barbara Anne

    This was not police brutality. I’m sure it will be downgraded to work place violence.

  • Joey Roux

    I think this would be a wonderful opportunity to pause for a moment and
    give thanks for the great contributions of the Black community to our
    society. Their peaceful and generous nature make them ideal neighbors,
    lending testimony to their exceptional family values and parenting
    skills unrivaled by any other culture. Their commitment to academic
    excellence enriches our schools and serves as an example to all who hope
    to achieve prominence as a people. Real estate values are fueled by the
    mix of African Americans into an area due to their caring and
    respectful nature of these communities, an example of all they have
    achieved through their enthusiasm for self improvement by hard work and a
    self-reliant can-do nature. Without their industrious and creative
    drive, we would be poorer as a nation.

  • davey

    Al Sharpton is a Racist plus he is there to make a buck. Where was he for Jonathan Foster? He wasn’t there because it wouldn’t be profitable for him

  • legato

    Javier Payne, what a name for this punk. In this case, it fits him. It looks like, he is trying for the thug lotto. Shoot his mouth, to try instigate the police officer.

  • jake

    Put this young thug in a jail and Al too for being a fking racist!

  • yyyyy

    Why does everyone need to pick a side in this debate? There is no reason for a cop to handle a kid like that. He deserves to be fired but if that’s all people like Sharpton are asking for then they aren’t making a difference in this kid’s life which is clearly in trouble if he’s assaulting people at 14.
