Shocking video of boy being shot many times in the chest by cops

News.com AU: A boy was shot many times in the chest by five police officers who have now been detained for questioning.

A shocking YouTube video shows the 14-yr old boy being shot repeatedly by the officers.  The boy is in critical condition but is stable.

The policemen swooped on the boy in Manaus which is the capital of the northern state of Amazonas and the potentially lethal assault upon the child happened in August 2010 outside his house.

The incident only surfaced when the video was shown on TV stations last week. The boy’s family are in hiding fearing retaliations from the police.
