This is the shocking moment an American police officer bodyslams a young criminal while trying to arrest him.
The video footage shows them wrestling against a wall, as the youth resists arrest and grabs the policeman in a headlock. That’s when the officer picks up the suspect and slams him onto the hard concrete floor, in a brutal show of force.
Many onlookers show their dismay at the escalating situation. The cop seems unconcerned about the use of force, as he proceeds to handcuff the young man who is lying on his front, moaning in pain.
While clearly this guy is resisting arrest, surely there’s a better way to deal with this kind of situation?
