If you are genuinely surprised by NZ Police beating up a handcuffed 13year old kid who was riding his bike without a helmet – you haven’t been listening to the complaints being made for decades…
Father lays complaint after police officer allegedly punches 13-year-old son in Pakuranga arrest
A video showing a police officer punching a 13-year-old boy in the ribs as he lies on the ground while being subdued has prompted the boy’s father to lodge an official complaint.
Geoff Garnett said his son had been aggressively arrested by two police officers on Monday for riding his bike without a helmet.
“What is New Zealand Police coming to?,” he asks, having watched the footage, which shows his 13-year-old son being punched once in the ribs while on the ground.
…I love how the first response by the NZ Police to getting caught beating up a handcuffed kid who was arrested for not wearing a helmet is total defence of their Officers
If you honestly think punching a handcuffed 13 year old and arresting him for not wearing a bike helmet is appropriate policing – then maybe you are the problem?
