I cannot fathom the pain this man was in. A protester is now suing LAPD for excessive force after bodycamera footage caught the moment an officer shot his testicle with a rubber bullet, resulting in extreme swelling and hospitalization.
Ben Montemayor was protesting against police brutality in Hollywood last June 2020, in the wake of the killing of George Floyd, when a Los Angeles police officer shot him with a rubber bullet. Montemayor was shot in the testicle which resulted in it swelling to the size of a grapefruit and erupting. Doctors had to piece his testicle back together. The video shows Montemayor was not a threat or violent when the officer allegedly shot him with the rubber bullet.
Check out the video of the incident below.
