FBI Agent Found Guilty Of Assaulting 15-Year-Old Boy And Threatening To Shoot Him At Gunpoint (Video)

In Rockville, Maryland, FBI agent, Gerald John Rogero, was caught on video assaulting a 15-year-old boy, who is a minority. Rogero has been found guilty of second-degree assault, after violently shoving the boy to the ground, going after him, then pulling his gun on the minor and stating, “If I have to shoot you I will.” The boy's mother feared Rogero was going to kill him.

When the guilty verdict came down in court, finding Rogero guilty, he had to be rushed to the hospital due to shortness of breath, under the shock and emotional trauma of it all. That's called an anxiety attack - you know, the same thing you gave that young boy when you viciously shoved him to the ground and with pistol pointed, threatened to end his little 15-year-old life.

Rogero is due to be sentenced in January 2016 and faces up to 10-years in prison. Amazingly, the FBI still has Rogero on duty and he is permitted to keep his gun. Once again, police brutality and excessive forces victimizes another member of the public. And as with the South Carolina case of officer Ben Fields, this one involves acts of brutality against an underage minor.

ROCKVILLE, Md. -- An FBI Special Agent was found guilty of second-degree assault on a 15-year-old after an incident caught on video last December, reports CBS affiliate WUSA. According to the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office, Gerald John Rogero, 45, was found guilty last week of second-degree assault, but officials say he was acquitted first-degree assault and use of a handgun in the commission of a felony.

In the video, Rogero confronts the estranged husband of a friend about his late arrival for a child hand-off. The teenage victim arrived at the scene with his mother, Jasmine Farooq, who is engaged to the estranged husband. Farooq told WUSAthat Rogero began screaming at them about being two hours later, and her teenage son asked Rogero why he was getting involved in the situation.

Next, the video shows Rogero shoving the teen, who falls to the ground, and moving to take him into custody before identifying himself as a federal agent. He is then seen pulling a gun on the teen. "If I have to shoot you I will," Rogero can be heard saying. It wasn't until he drew his weapon that the teen's mom says she realized he was a law enforcement officer. Farooq says she was afraid Rogero would kill her son…
