Officer Grabs Child For The State; Smacks Him For Resisting, Acting Like A Child

August 7, 2013 by  

As we’ve often written, U.S. police officers — whom I’ve come to call LEOs (legally entitled to oppress) — are becoming increasingly violent and oppressive in their interactions with the citizenry. Case in point is this recent incident of abuse (my word) in Eugene, Ore.

A police officer, reportedly acting on behalf of a judge’s order to remove a child from his mother and place him in the custody of his mother’s boyfriend (and not a biological relative), hit the child in the face after the child allegedly bit him. The officer later lied about the nature of the blow.

I don’t know the circumstances of the family or what led to the order from the judge. I know only what the video shows.

Apparently, officers tried to grab the 8-year-old boy in a park near his home. The child tried to run home and was grabbed by an officer before he made it. The officer is seen pulling the boy by his arms. The boy clearly doesn’t want to go and expresses it verbally and with his actions. The child then moves his face close to the officer’s hand and the officer slaps the child’s forehead (at about 1:07).

At 10:20, the officer clearly lied, saying he pushed the boy away, demonstrating with a push on his own forehead.

Watch the video for yourself (foul language warning).

LEOs are becoming increasing militarized and increasingly militant. They will be on the front line of the growing tyranny. They obey orders to the letter. They lie and they obfuscate. And the rights of the citizens mean nothing to them.
