Did the police in Detroit, Michigan beat up 17-year-old Jamal Freeman after also shooting at him twelve times because a bank teller at the Detroit Liberty Bank mistook his erection for a gun? Nope, that's an old satirical story which recently went viral again, it is not true.
A 17-year old teenager is in critical condition at the Detroit Medical Center after police officers believed he was attempting a holdup at the Detroit Liberty Bank and shot him twelve times, World Daily News reports.
The guy, Jamal Freeman, was brutally beaten by six police officers after trying to flee the scene until he finally surrendered and got arrested six blocks away, according to official reports.
He miraculously survived the gunshots and beating, and is lying in an artificially induced comatic state. They cleared him of all charges.
