A 17-year-old teenager is in critical condition at the Detroit Medical Centre after he was beaten by cops.
Local press reports that Jamal Freeman’s erect penis made a cashier mistake him for an armed robber before raising alarm.
The scared cashier at Detroit Liberty Bank raised alarm, prompting security men to shot at him after he attempted to flee the scene.
The 17-year-old, that miraculously survived the salvo of gunshots, currently lies in an artificially induced comatic state and has now officially been cleared of all charges of bank robbery.
Camera footage showed that the young man was apparently in full erection while waiting in line and thus confused the bank teller in thinking he was concealing a weapon in his pants.
“He reached for something in his pants, I thought it was a gun,” said Sandy Heinrich, bank teller who immediately pushed the alert button which brought intervention by two bank security guards and eventually six police officers only minutes later.
His mother, Jennabelle Freeman, says her son is a victim of racist discrimination and that all this would not have happened if he had been white.
“Of course black people have larger penises, it ain’t no freakin’ reason to shoot at them,” she told reporters in tears.
“Jamal has always had a large penis, even when he was just a kid,” she recalled, in despair, adding: “Never would I have thought he would get harmed in any way because of this.”
Eyewitness testimony and camera footage inside the bank clearly attest to the fact that the teenager had been “sturdily manipulating his penis with both of his hands” on the scene corroborated officials.
