Lawyers for a Michigan teen's family released photos Tuesday showing the boy's injuries following a June 2014 arrest in Grand Rapids.

An unarmed African-American teen was badly beaten by a Michigan police officer during an arrest that violated the Fourth Amendment, his lawyers said Tuesday.

A federal lawsuit filed last week accuses a Grand Rapids officer of using “unreasonable and excessive force” while having “no lawful authority” for the June 2014 arrest.

Officer Sean McCamman punched the boy in the head and bludgeoned him with the bulb end of a flashlight after a chase involving vague reports of a black male carrying a gun, according to the lawsuit. The teen, who was 15 at the time and is referred to in court papers only as “D.B.,” was later cleared of all charges stemming from the arrest.

......D.B. suffers from severe headaches and muscle spasms, nausea, vomiting and speech problems, his attorneys said. His injuries delayed his high school graduation and kept him off sports teams where he had excelled...

......My son’s injuries are so severe that he will never fully heal mentally, physically, or emotionally,”

Yes, at least he is still alive. I understand that sentiment. However, it is so sad that we are at a place that 15 year old boy is in this condition and we say "At least he is alive."

Agreed. But today, they kill brothers for less. The blessing is, he's alive to talk about it

Understood...we are happy they didn't kill him on the spot.

But, the quality of his life will never be the same. His dreams, his future, etc., were stolen.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
