"Police brutality and racism," visibly angry residents chanted while standing at the Centreville City Hall.

Thursday evening, a video circulating social media showed a 12-year-old student who has been identified as Temorrious Crews on the ground in handcuffs as a woman is seen next to him surrounded by officers.

In the video, things become physical as punches are thrown by the parent and by an officer before the altercation moves to the pavement.

Jerry Wooley, who's been identified as Latrivia's significant other, says he's overwhelmed after seeing the video.

"He's just a kid. No matter the situation, it's a sad sight to see. Especially from an officer I thought was a better man," said Wooley.

Nyja Austin, who is Temorrious's cousin, says that she's  "livid" after seeing the video.
"Latrivia is a single mother and does a great job raising her boys. To see a minor in handcuffs and having to see his mother like that is very disheartening."
