Appearing in public for the first time since allegedly being slammed through a window by a New York City police officer, 14-year-old Javier Payne and his family joined Rev. Al Sharpton on Saturday for a National Action Network rally and demanded justice, reports the New York Post.
According to Payne’s family, the eighth-grader needed 50 stitches on his side and staples in his forehead.
“All we can say is that nothing justifies these results,” Sharpton said.
