A police officer was filmed punching a 13-year-old boy during an arrest as the teenager struggled on the ground while being detained.
Mobile phone footage captured in Auckland, New Zealand, shows two officers pinning a boy to the floor while attempting to handcuff him.
As the boy resists arrest and keeps his arm firmly tucked beneath his body, an officer then appears to deliver a punch to the side of his body before the teenager's left arm is released.
The boy was being arrested in the suburb of Pakuranga and now faces charges of disorderly behaviour, failing to stop and resisting police.
The boy's father, Geoff Garnett uploaded the footage to Facebook , saying: "What is New Zealand coming to?
Two police officers and a civilian have been shot dead by a man shouting Allahu Akbar, which led to a hostage situation at a high school in Liege, east Belgium.
The attacker, who is understood to have been released from prison yesterday, approached the policemen from behind, and stabbed them several times with a knife at around 10.30am local time.
Belgian prosecutors say he then disarmed the officers and used their own guns to kill them, before shooting dead a 22-year-old man in a nearby vehicle.
The man then reportedly fled to a nearby secondary school and took a female cleaner hostage inside, before being shot dead by an elite police unit.
He was later named by Belgian broadcaster RTBF as Benjamin Herman, 36, a violent drug dealer who they claim had been 'radicalized' in prison before his release Monday.
Initial reports suggested that the attacker had opened fire after being stopped by officers for a routine document check, however prosecutors now say he approached the officers.
Local news website DHnet.be reported that he had shouted 'Allahu Akbar' as he fired on on Liege's central Boulevard d'Avroy, citing police sources.
Videos posted on social media showed people scurrying for safety on Liege's central boulevard d'Avroy with shots and sirens being heard in the background.
One video show emergency services and police officers in body armour moving into position, another sees the two police officers shot dead in the street.
Minutes later, anti-terrorist special forces police could be seen surrounding the area, which went into lock down.
Philippe Dulieu, spokesman for the Liege prosecutor's office, told reporters the man had come out firing from the high school, before he was 'neutralised'.
'He came out firing at police, wounding a number of them, notably in the legs. He was shot dead'.
All students in the school were successfully evacuated, and the female hostage was released without being caused any harm.
Officials say they are now considering the attack on Tuesday morning to have been an act of terrorism.
Nine months ago, a Coeur d’Alene couple went to the hospital for an allergic reaction, but medical staff thought they were drunk in public, according to a police report. By the time it was all over, the two, Lindsay and Harrison McLean, were in the back of a squad car, charged with attacking a police officer. But the couple says, they were the ones that were threatened. The two officers were dispatched to Kootenai Health when the hospital staff called 911 and said the McLean’s had driven drunk and parked the wrong way in the hospital entrance, court documents say. Things took a drastic turn once officers entered the waiting room. “I felt more of a need to protect my spouse, more than my own safety and make no mistake I understand the severity of getting physical with law enforcement officer but at the same time, there's two sides to every scenario,” Harrison said.
Lindsay says her husband had an allergic reaction to a drink he had at a bonfire that night so she drove him to the hospital. Lindsay told police she had four beers, the police report said. “We were celebrating our anniversary that day, we had two beers with lunch, we went antique shopping, came home, sat on the patio, had a beer,” Lindsay said, “and then that's when we were asked to go to a friends house, at that friends house I had one drink." "Four beers over the span of eight hours,” Harrison added. Lindsay says while they were waiting for help, a receptionist made light of her husband’s condition and that’s when she responded. “At that time, I addressed it, and she threatened to have me arrested,” Lindsay said. When police showed up, the McLean’s say they calmly talked with the officers and the couple’s friends showed up to drive them home.
“I told him I wasn't driving, I had friends there to pick us up and at that point he grabbed my arm, threw me over a chair and then exposed me,” she said. Several surveillance cameras also captured the incident. McLean says Officer Proctor didn’t give her any verbal commands until after he grabbed her, exposing her underwear in the process in the waiting room. Harrison attempted to break it up and a scuffle broke out. Coeur d’Alene Police Captain David Hagar says by then, Officer Proctor had probable cause to arrest her. “When she turned that way he wanted to gain control because she's starting to get a little bit louder, ‘we're walking out of here right now’,” Hagar said, “she's making those statements and we can't allow that to occur and at that point in time and you can hear it on the video, he tells her that she is under arrest." Captain Hagar says per protocol, they review any use of force incident to see if an officer’s actions are excessive.
In this case, Hagar says police determined the officers acted appropriately. “It was reported within 24 hours through our use of force board and reviewed the video and based on the aggressive, assault, battery behavior against our officers,” Hagar said, “you simply just can't batter an officer." Hagar says Officer Proctor only punched Harrison McLean until Harrison let go so that the officer could put him in handcuffs. But the McLean’s still believe the officers went too far. Lindsay is charged with battery on a police officer, resisting and refusing a sobriety test. Harrison is charged with assaulting an officer and resisting arrest. Both were offered plea deals, but since they feel they did nothing wrong the two are set to go on trial in early June.

Just moments before, she said she had passed a breathalyser test, and had shown the officers the sealed alcohol the group had with them on the Memorial Day weekend.

“Internal docs” posted by Baltimore-based investigative reporter Jayne Miller show that Dawnta Harris, the 16-year-old teen accused of running over and killing a Baltimore police officer was supposed to be on house arrest at the time.

Moments after arriving at the city house, Rochester Police Officer Korey McNees offered a solution for the man standing outside who wanted to retrieve items from his uncooperative girlfriend who'd earlier changed the locks:
Just break into the house, McNees said.
The law allowed it, McNees told the man time and time again in conversations outside of the Genesee Park Boulevard home and captured on police-worn body cameras. If the boyfriend lived there, then he was in his legal right to kick in a door or break a window and get his small refrigerator, air conditioning unit, and gift cards he wanted from within, the officer said.
Finally, the boyfriend, who for more than 20 minutes hesitated to follow the advice and who did not formally reside at the home, listened to McNees and smashed out a window. His former girlfriend, Catherine Bonner, responded by sticking a 9mm rifle out of the window. And now Bonner is facing criminal charges, accused of menacing a police officer in the Nov. 13 incident.
On Tuesday, May 22, state Supreme Court Justice Charles Schiano Jr. is scheduled to rule on motions from Bonner's attorney, David Pilato, who contends that evidence in the case should be suppressed because the police actions before, during, and even after Bonner's arrest were clearly unconstitutional.
Prosecutors differ, saying Bonner had no cause to stick the rifle out the window, even if the police were in the wrong when telling the boyfriend he could break in.

A gunman who fired shots to bring police to the Trump National Doral golf course and resort early Friday was disabled by five officers who shot him in his legs, a police chief said.
The resort is in northwest Miami-Dade County. It is owned by President Donald Trump’s privately held company; he was not on the premises during the 1:30 a.m. incident.
Arrested was Jonathan Oddi, 42, a Doral resident who was hospitalized in stable condition. The only other reported injury was to a Doral police officer who broke his wrist.
A police chief said officers were called after Oddi pointed a handgun at staff and began firing.
Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez said Oddi appparently wanted to “engage our police officers, some type of ambush type attack, trying to lure our police officers.”
One officer from Miami-Dade police and four officers from Doral Police raced to the hotel at Northwest 36th Street and 87th Avenue and all exchanged gunfire with Oddi, Perez said.
“He did succeed, and he did lose,” Perez said. “That’s the bottom line.”
The two police agencies train together and Perez credited that collaboration with a prompt end to the threat. No hotel employees or guests were hurt.
