Disturbing Video Shows Cop Lose it on a Handcuffed Child and Hit Him in the Face Multiple Times

Sandoval County, NM — Last August, Sandoval County deputy Fred Switzer, and another deputy were transporting a teenage child from a court appearance when things went shockingly awry.

After the teen was placed in handcuffs and put in the back of the patrol car, Switzer took it upon himself to dole out not, one, but four hard slaps to the teen’s face.

While the patrol car’s camera doesn’t have sound, the teen appears to move his head in a motion to spit at the officer. However, the actual spit was not caught on the camera, and even if it had been, it did not warrant the violent response to a handcuffed kid.

Switzer, 70, retired from the Albuquerque police department as a lieutenant and has been with the Sandoval County sheriff’s department for eight years. However, he has since been fired.

After a fellow officer had witnessed the assault, he filed a report with Switzer’s supervisors. Despite the incident happening six months ago, the video of the attack, and news of the officer’s firing was just released publicly.

Young children often find themselves on the receiving end of police state violence while attending public school.

In January of last year, Colton Granito, an 8-year-old boy with autism, threw a tantrum during class. Instead of following the boy’s IEP plan, police were called. Colton was handcuffed, transported to jail, and forced to sit in a cell for hours wearing a straight jacket. He was subsequently charged with assault and sentenced to probation.

The photo below is of a 10-year-old child handcuffed, laid out on the back of a police cruiser. The boy’s name is Ryan, and he has autism. He misbehaved at school and was also arrested and treated like a criminal.

In September of last year, we reported on body cam footage showing a 9-year-old special needs boy handcuffed as his father pleaded with the officer to release him.

That same month, a highly disturbing video of cops manhandling a 13-year-old autistic child as he screamed for help emerged on Facebook.

And these cases contain only autistic children. If you truly want a glimpse into the horrid effects of the police state on all children, take a scroll through our archives, at this link.

  • Help us make this cop famous! (Y) + Comment + Share this video with your friends and family.

  • At least he was fired.

    • Good point Kurt!

    • I’m pretty certain if a civilian did this to a child, they would be jailed.

    • Just comparing this to the many officers that keep their jobs after brutally beating pregnant women causing miscarriages, murdering unarmed minorities, choking teens caught with marijuana, shooting mentally ill elderly people, etc. Just all in perspective. Should he be thrown in jail? Obviously!

  • Why?? Put him in Jail..

  • The kid is disrespectful and spit on the officer kids today have no respect for anyone and need a old school ass whoopin

    • Yeah, bc slapping a retrained child in the face repeatedly will surely make him want to listen and be receptive…

    • If i did that as a child my father would have poped me in the mouth

    • Bet he not do it again

    • Kid is old enough to realize what he’s doing

    • Ariyahs Father …he will grow up anti police …it’s a felony if a parent does that to their child…but rest assure I don’t give a Dammm what the law is …I spanked my kids as needed!

    • Ariyah go fuck yourself you dumb animal.!

    • Not my fault you can’t teach your your kids right from wrong my child knows if she spit on someone there consequences if it was over seas they would have cut there tongue out… Franz W Robert II you a liberal pussy

    • You fat Bob Marley looking mother f*****

    • Who’s fault is it that no one teched you you to rite or red rite?

    • What lol

    • James J Goyette your a hipster

    • Its nasty to spit on anyone. Kid should’ve kicked that old piece of shit right in his tooth. Spitting on anyone, even a fat piece of shit whose sucking up resources to drive kids to court, is nasty and beneath contempt. Too bad the kid couldn’t just punch the fat fuck in the throat and THEN piss on his dyin corpse.

    • You sir are the definition of mental health problem in America

  • The family should SUE THE BASTARDS if they didn’t already.

    • Parents should teach that kid how to show respect. What would your parents do if you spit on them when you were growing up?

    • Matt Rice Sure ,this cop is NOT his parent . It is nothing but assault .Kids will be kids or why become parents? Keep your hands to yourself

  • Mother fucker I’d load up my shotgun real quick

  • Interesting….
    Hit a child on camera … charged and fired.
    Murder a child on camera ….. no charges and no firing.

  • I promise my grand mother <3 before she died :'( :'( that I will get this page to 50k and in a week can ya please help me :'( :'( because I want to keep my promise please help by liking my page <3

  • Tks ad with post: Not only has this child abusing cop been fired, he may also be facing criminal charges.

    Police The Police (Y) ~~> http://goo.gl/Fr2aZU

  • I don’t like pigs but I don’t like spit. He did slap him soft

  • Yay it’s not Florida

  • Do I think he will be punished? Ummmm YOUR post said he was fired. Did you even bother to watch the video or read the article before posting it?

  • You don’t get to hit children as a police officer. Deal with getting spit on like an adult in a line of work where that’s a risk. Do the part of your job that requires you to be the bigger person and hold your temper.

  • Kaitlyn Mahoney

  • This is too F@#KING much!!!! I’m pissed & this isn’t even my child…You better believe if this was my child I would make sure this man was ripped limb from limb whether he was a cop or not.

    • yet you support Bernie??? how the F do you think bernie’s policies are going to be enforced??? More taxes, more laws, more government! all enforced by the same cops (and new ones) that you are upset about now… smdh…

    • WHAT? This has absolutely nothing to do with any of that you psycho babbling moose sac…Just a like a Hillary supporter or republican, which IS the same thing, you are getting it twisted & veering off the present issue at hand…This is someone’s young child being taken hostage in handcuffs & slapped in the face & are issues that WE the people can take care of IMMEDIATELY on the state level in droves without leaving it to ANY President to handle BUT we aren’t doing it because we all live in our little bubbles & think this sort of thing will never happen to us. The only reason officers are now getting indicted & some convicted is because of BLACK LIVES MATTER & their relentless pursuit of justice which put it all back on the scene in terms of media oh & that little invention of cellphones with cameras. But again me supporting Bernie has nothing to do with my anger towards this specific cop & Bernie has stated several times over that the justice system, especially the cops, WILL be dealt with like he did as a the MAYOR of Burlington. He was a civil rights activist as a young man & has NEVER FLIP-FLOPPED on those issues. I can go on & on with Bernies AMAZINGNESS but it will fall on deaf ears or I should say blind eyes. AND btw you’re so AFRAID of government takeover I think Mr. Snowden revealed that to us all & you’re TOO LATE for that…and it wasn’t Bernie’s fault! Be afraid of the MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX & CORPORATE POWER which EVERY CANDIDATE but Bernie is or has supported…THE END!

    • Wouldn’t it be better to educate the child and not put him self in this type of situation?!

    • What would you do if your child spit in the police officer’s face

    • Just what I did with my niece when she spit in her stepfather’s face while playing…I educated her but 1st I asked her where did she first see another person do that or if she saw it on TV…I spoke to her calmly without yelling or scorning her…i reprimanded her in a calm voice in front of him…She was visibly regretful & apologized AND hasn’t ever done it again. She told me she had seen 1 of her classmates spit on another & obviously the teacher was not aware & they all thought this was ok BUT you obviously do not have a child because if you did then you would NOT be asking me that question. I don’t even have kids & I’m ABSOLUTELY opposed to any adult who isn’t this child’s parents to reprimand him with slap to the face. No one has a right to put their hands on anyone especially a young child & especially not a stranger with a gun & handcuffs.

    • Layla Vasquez and there in lies the source of the problem. YOU’RE A FUCKING PARENT! NOT THEIR FRIENDS! ACT LIKE IT! FFS you pacified shitbags make me sick.

    • Um Yeah!… maybe you need to go back to school Mr. Schooley & become a psychologist or a social worker where you can actually have some professional backing to your abusive rhetoric or better yet go to a therapist & get a handle on your issues…you sound like you’ve been given many a lickin’ as a child just for batting an eyelash & you turned out SOOOOOOOOO well didn’t ya? LOL

    • Well considering I net 6 figures annually, yeah I think I’m doing pretty good. And your education proves? Oh that you can follow directions and copy what you’ve read. I’ve talked to many “head doctors” all of which possess the same pompous self righteous attitude you do. Psychology is a joke lol, but hey, good luck living the simple life.

    • Wow 6 figures huh? THAT explains it!!! And your STILL miserable & projecting it…possibly onto children. Talked to MANY “head doctors” have you? THAT explains even more. I guess misery does love company…the more you respond to my posts the more alive you feel. I’m glad I could do that for you. Seriously dude you’re demented & I’m done with you…ACCESS DENIED!!!!!

  • Force should only be used when necessary and not to make a point specially by law enforcement!

  • Good.

  • Seriously America? Sort it out. We’re almost as bad but some of the shit coming out of the states right now……….why? just..why?

  • Pigs dont deserve respect, it is earned not commanded. Use of violence on a child lol pig lovers need you kids slapped upside the head by a pig lol

  • I hate when I hear he MAY. As if it’s a possibility but not likely. That’s basically what that sounds like.

  • And he’ll hopefully get the shit kicked out if him while in jail/prison

  • cops aint what they used to be – surprised he didn·t shoot the kids ass !

  • You ever notice how America is really becoming the shittiest country in the world!?!

    • what do you mean becoming you america got that title long ago

  • Fuckin coward.

  • ^^^

  • oh god there not like that in the uk

  • Things have certainly changed. There was a time if a kid was taken into jail cops were allowed to spank them before handing them over to the parents, who usually spanked them again when they arrived home. Maybe if this kid had been properly disciplined at home he wouldn’t have been in handcuffs in the first place. I had an incident on my job where a customer spit at several people. The police were called. The victims refused to press charges. The police, however, did press charges. Their reason, as AIDS is spread through body fluids, spitting in someone’s face was considered attempted murder.

    • That argument is only valid if the spitter has HIV or aids. But I’m sorry, you’re wrong, that cop has no right to hit a restrained child or adult. Hand cuffs are for preventing the suspect grim attacking the cop, not to restrain him so the cop can hurt him.

    • Not my argument, simply a statement of what was common at one time. I’m not the police, once again stating what happened. I agree to the point that someone restrained has no chance of defending themselves, but again, we don’t know what happened before this incident. We are so quick to condemn the police, but I question the lack of restraint, respect and simple courtesy of the young man. And again, I say, if he had been properly disciplined at home and taught right from wrong, without someone making excuses for him, he MAY not have ended up in handcuffs with a long record of illegal activity to begin with. We baby these kids, give them excuses and don’t force them to accept responsibility for their actions. It was not how I was raised or how I raised my kids.

    • never been ok to hit a kid in the face over and over ,, ass hat,, who raised you jesus man

    • Eric Briggs i am not a man. And I never said it was OK. I question the kid disrespecting a representative of the law by mouthing off and spitting at him. And I question the lack of discipline in the home and a proper upbringing that lead him to his situation in the first place. I question why he is so defiant even when he KNOWS he is vulnerable that he would continue to act out. I question why people are not stating he needs to be held responsible for his actions rather than talking about him getting smacked. AGAIN, had he been disciplined in his home this whole discussion would be mute. And for the record, smacking anyone in the face can cause ear damage so I would NEVER advocate for it.

    • You cannot get HIV AIDS from saliva aka “spit”

    • It’s a body fluid. HIV is past in body fluids. At the time of the arrest health agencies were reporting possible infection from sweat and saliva.

    • No you can only get it from blood, semen, vaginal fluid, and breast milk. You CAN NOT get HIV or AIDS from saliva.

    • 20 years ago when you were still in diapers doctors warned that HIV was transmitted through ALL bodily fluids. But you seem to know an awful lot about it, so good for you. The point is 20 years ago you could be arrested for spitting on someone because the belief was it was transmitted through saliva. That is also the reason a certain basketball player retired. He was HIV positive and his teammates did not want to come in contact with his sweat. You’re young so I don’t expect you to know these things. Plus kids your age have a powerful.need to.be right all the time.

    • You can technically become infected through saliva… but you would literally have to DRINK copious quantities of it.

      Which is beside the point: the argument here seems to be that cops are justified in using any force they see fit, regardless of the severity, simply because of the suspect’s actions – which in this case are RELATIVELY harmless. I mean come on: I’ve seen MASS SHOOTERS taken into custody without a single blow to their face. Be real. Please. It is NOT a cop’s job to administer summary corporal punishment – we have legal systems for a reason! Smh. To merge together the issues of policing and parenting is mere juxtaposition; and as such any comparison is a little bit pointless, unless EVERY single crime committed by every criminal period can then be attributed somehow to “bad parenting” – which is immensely stupid. The actions of “criminals” do not and should not justify violent treatment!

    • It all starts in the home. However, two children raised in the same home.can take.totally different paths, one a saint and one a sinner. It is extremely complicated, however, kids get away with a lot and parents protect them and claim the are perfect instead of making them take responsibility for their actions. I don’t believe ANYONE should ever strike a kid who isn’t theirs. Period. In reference to your last sentence Joseph Layne, if you kill someone don’t cry “I don’t want to die; when someone puts a gun to your head. You’ve lost that right when you took a life.

    • I certainly agree with you Pat, and there were definitely issues surrounding parenting and the social implications of bad parenting, particularly in this day and age where things seems to be getting progressively worse, progressively quickly… My issue is simply that policing and punishment are separate for a reason; arbitrary use of force is a slippery slope, and leads to all kinds of complications – hence this latest incident! For me it is not a question of whether the kid DESERVED a slap, or a spanking/etc: the question for me is whether or not a COP should be the one to administer summary punishment – especially if the recipient in question is also likely to be punished by law for the same offence, which would essentially mean double punishment in a sense! As hard as it may have been, I think the officer made the wrong move: his job is to enforce the law, not administer it! For better or worse, the hands-on approach is not as viable as it once was…

    • I agree. I don’t like people putting their hands on me and I was raised to keep my hands to myself. Discipline is a parents job. When I was in 7th grade the teacher wanted each kid to go home and bring a note back giving him permission to spank you in class. I was furious my mother agreed. She said she knew it would never happen to me, but just the thought of her agreeing blew my mind. I would never have allowed it with my kids either. If someone has a problem with your kid, they need to talk to the parents. With out of control cops, they are the last people who should be taking that upon themselves.

  • This is something i thought i would never see a police officer do to a child.. they should be arrested..OMG

  • Daniel Jones what do you think about this one? (This time I’m really not being a dick, i’m honestly curious on what you think about it)

    • Like I said earlier, these types deserve all the grief in the world.

  • Good no pity 4 this bastard.

  • wtf

  • Hannah Laidlaw

  • You dont hit a child period, and if u cant handle shit like that than dont become a police officer, its slapping a child today but tomorrow he might be beating up a drunk guy , u could give the kid an extra charge for spitting like assault but cops must follow the rules like the rest of society and be held accountable like we all are, is the child a punk yes, does he deserve to get his ass beat …probably but thats not the police officer’s job…..

    • I would easily argue that slapping a child is way worse than beating up a drunk guy.

    • im sorry i dont know how slapping a punk kid for spitting at you is worse than beating up a drunk guy for no apparent reason, and why would u even say this, u should probably just focus on the issue at hand

  • THE LITTLE BASTARD DESERVED EVERY PUNCH!

  • He’s been fired.

  • He MAY?! This man should be detained and punished.

  • Wow really people this kid was coming out of court he spit in the officers face maybe if a parent smacked this little shit it would have never gotten this far. No accountability. For criminals even if they are kids

    • key word ass kids you dumbass…i would to kick your ass….please

    • can u type in English ?

    • And you most certainly would not kick my ass sir

    • you are a sicko john conte the kid is barely moving no threat at all to grown armed men you are a twat and your police are supposed to be setting a good example what an asshole you and them are

    • U a police apologist. What a looooossssseeeeerrrrr

    • No Theresa did u actually what it he spit in his face while cursing at him the officer paint brushes him a little it’s about respect why was he coming out of a court room maybe that’s one of the few times in this spoiled brats life he was held accountable. You mewling quim

    • No I’m not you fucking hick sack of dicks I’m one of the first people to call out a cop he didn’t closed fist punch the kid he paint brushes him are u such a scared little loser you can’t see the difference

    • Settle down Beavis

    • Don’t go losing your shiznit, John ! For starters, it’s only assumed he was GOING to spit at him…. No proof he ever did!

    • If my kids was to spit in my face and I slapped him that cop wouldn’t think twice to arrest me! As well it is their job to NOT lose their cool… This is unacceptable!

    • I’m sorry, what does the kid spitting have anything to do with a cop hitting a defenseless kid 4 times in the face?

      I don’t disagree the kid is a little shit but being a little shit doesn’t permit the cop to do whatever the hell he wants…

    • You mother fuckers are the source of the problem, John Conte, is absolutely right. If his shitbag parents actually tried, OMG hold on this concept is absurd, “parenting” this would not be an issue. I’m not saying what the pig did was right, but you better be certain I would’ve slapped this mcshit out of this little cock sucker too. Foh.

    • Michael Schooley your a fucking asshole and no nothing about parenting . You could be the best parent in the world but u still have NO CONTROL over what your kids will do . Not to mention the kid has autism . Thats a grown ass man bro , he would use his badge and his gun to kill anyone who ever touch his child like that so why should he do it to someone elses child

    • John is another brainwashed pussy that likes beating on those that don’t have a chance to fight back or is too weak to fight! Your no man john !! Your a pussywillow

    • Michael is John’s brother!

    • And not true about getting arrested for slapping your child!!!! physical discipline is not illegal… ” anything that causes only transient pain and no mark after 20 minutes” according to cps…. my daughter inspired me to ask for that in writing because of people spewing that stupid shit that are too blind to see the results of their new “parenting” ideas. i did not spank my daughter, inefective on a teen ager

    • whatch the video he did

    • Bret Simcha and your a cunt

    • John Conte I’m with you john conte whoever you are

    • and meanwhile in europe (germany) kids under 14 have no criminal responsibility (and until 18 or (if mentally immature sometimes until 21) they only get judged by youth law), and police men which hit kids loose their job and go into jail (beside the fact that in germany police kills only ~10 (2014:7)) people per year and gets really problems if they kill someone unarmed)… i always wonder, it’s like US is a totally different world from europe

    • Cops aren’t there to teach manners, they are there to enforce law, appropriately. Slapping a child isn’t appropriately… A grown ass man vs a handcuffed child, bet he feels really big now.

      Also, physical beatings don’t teach kids Shit, other than to despise authority. Read a fucking book.

    • Yes John the parents should’ve beat the Autism out if the child so they’d behave and not give a coward with a badge the reason to do this,Smh I hope you don’t have any children with your clear anger issues,and ignorance!

    • Thanks john… Since cunt actually means kundalini.. Which is the energy serpentine throughout my chakras, I’m delighted with your unintelligent attempt to down my brilliance, since your a dumbass, I’m sure you didn’t know that as you are a dumbass… So this paragraph more than likely lost you as well… Lmmfao

    • No accountability from asshole human beings in general.

    • haha and if the parents smacked the kid they would end up with a felony and jail time.

    • if he spat in the officors face at all i see at best a back chat and this kid has specual needs autism is a disability somthing that has to be understood and not to be hit for

    • hitting children is the lazy way to solve a problem you should try talking to them but this takes time commitment and understanding of childrens needs and why was a copper allowed to be taking a child any where with out a propper adult to care for his needs in the 1 st place

    • If a parent had smacked him they’d be arrested for child abuse.

    • looked to me like the kid needed the shit slapped outta him. old school. good for that cop. if more parents did this there wouldnt be so much fuckin disrespect

    • Luke Davis the child has autism I don’t think beating him would cure that ,but nothing better than a lesson on disrespect from a “man” who can’t make his point without using disrespectful language

    • There’s a difference between respecting authority and not letting police abuse their authority.

    • True. It’s always the cops fault nowadays never the asshole that starts it all. Send the kid to prison he’ll learn

    • Billy Schneider so I get it the cop should have spit in the kids face. Teach the kid what it feels like ?. YES!!

    • Linda Wiggins sorry, I thought we were all adults here and could handle a little profanity. Sorry if I offended your simple mind

    • Linda Wiggins he did not have autism that was a separate incident read comprehend then type you won’t look rediculus

    • Andrew Dudley I’m willing to bet you don’t have kids

  • He should go to jail!

  • And this is why I won’t travel to America. I can’t have a holiday in a place that openly abuses their citizens. I live in one getting ever closer to it. The west is getting more disturbing by the day

  • Some kid spit at me I would slap the little punk too but then again I’m not a cop.

  • Dam…357 time

  • Picking on the weak and poor. That’s there bread an butter

  • He had no right to slap that kid across the face. He was already handcuffed. Hopefully the cop faces prison time for this.

  • get him fired and prosecuted

  • I’m with the cop. Call it experience.

  • That 7 year old should not have broken the law im surprised he didn’t get Tased….

  • Badge or no badge.slap my child….you dont walk away.promise ya.

  • KILL THEM AND THEIR FAMILIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! KILL PIGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • And there is the fucking problem. He “may” face criminal charges. This is a clear cut case of assault. This citizen was restrained in a patrol car. He mouthed off? So what? He spit at you? Charge him with it, but YOU DO NOT GET TO PHYSICALLY ASSAULT A RESTRAINED CITIZEN. You should be prosecuted tot he fullest extent of the law and the only consideration given to your emplyment as a police officer would be to turn your simple assault into aggravated.

  • guess it’s okay until you do it to someone’s kid

  • john brunk what an asshole you enjoy seeing kids get beat up by armed adults sad bastard

  • WOW

  • Kids lucky that’s all he got

  • What would you do if this was your child and he just spit in the cops face

    • Well if it had been me as a kid I would’ve gotten smacked too. I waa taught never to spit in someones face.

    • If it was my kid, they would’ve never been in the back of a squad car. Secondly if they were, and they did that, I’d take turns slapping them.

    • Lmao. My kids would never do anything wrong. My kids are angels and I am the perfect parent, gosh darn it! Roflmfao

  • I’d kill the bastred

  • Anyone else would be charged. Why not him?

  • Hang that cop

  • The kid spit on him? I would have slapped him too.

    • 8 year old kid with autism bro . U can live with a lil mouth water

  • A cop does not require your obedience to do his job, he requires your obedience to do his job peacefully.

  • Wtf

  • Weird story- serve and protect huh??? Wait till that kid grows up!! no respect at all for law!

  • He should be in jail. If I walked up and slapped some kid like this I would be jail, he should be in jail.

  • He just assaulted the kid, they should get a lawyer, that what some cops do to kids because who going to listen to them, there Already have him in handcuff’s (I’m just glade it’s not in Reno, NV) I haven’t heard anything yet!

  • Had a headmaster do that a few times as a kid….what have these fks got in common?!

  • Where’s buddies medal?

  • He’ll get his job back and back pay

  • When ya live in a world where the armchair judges think its OK for “governmental enforcers” who outweigh, in mind and bodyweight, a child, no matter how unruly they may be…you know tyrants will always rule without accountability, because the majority of “peasant’s” are infiltrated with many, who suffer from Stockholm syndrome.

  • His parents should beat the shit out of the cop or shoot him. No one touches my kid like that.

  • Violence doesn’t teach anything but violence. Assault is always wrong. You can’t teach a child not to spit or hit by hitting them. You only teach them to bide their time till they’re big enough to get back at you.

  • He SHOULD get an award for PARENTING THE OLD FASHIONED WAY! I guarantee he got the PUNKS ATTENTION! NO bible! No banging! Just an ass kickin’!

  • Maybe his parents should spend less time sucking glass dicks and more time being parents? Just a thought.

    • Do u have kids ? Do they have autism ? By your response i highly doubt it

    • I have 3 actually. My youngest has severe adhd. My wife works with special needs children. But please, feel free to try again troll.

    • Glass though? Lol

    • It’s a term for crack pipe, or a meth pipe.

  • Yea ok villify the cranky cop an stick up for this disrespectful brat fukking teen NICE JOB u bleeding hearts im not condoning his abuse but surely no one bothered to teach this young man respect for authority or even his elders Shame on everyone the cop should be reprimanded but not fired what lesson are we teaching our young people that decide to become law breaking criminals ? So im on this cops side and please don’t blame drugs….ive seen many many drug addicts in my day and they were some of the most beautiful ppl I’ve ever met…guilty of making poor choices ..or falling victim of something the doctors push to make u feel better….and then when you become addicted because of course they hide the facts…that the pain meds are highly addictive…society and your govt. shuns you….anyway…the teen …im sure its not his first offense…and the cop well ….im sure some of you may not know how you would react if a punk kid spits in your face …thats one of the most disgusting things you can do to a person….so like i said suspend the cop…put him on desk duty till he retires…or force him out..why should one bad judgement call reflect his whole career…so now we will have criminals..antagonizing cops in order to provoke this behavior…ok sorry for the rant….but Trump gets me riled up….

    • When a country thinks it’s alright to handcuff a child that country has completely lost its moral compass. What sort of people are you? Are you all mad?

    • Got beat up by cops when I was a kid , wasn’t a bad kid , just a long haired gearhead . Got beat up because the Cop’s could . It happened more than once . Now I’m grown and Hate cops ! More people around that have the same tale to tell . Cops are just a bigger gang , no difference .

    • It jus so happens i was beat up too i was in the wrong place at the wrong time along came a paddy wagon an they rounded up a group of teens near a college okay they scattered an ran off in all directions-hence i was arrested too smacked cursed at and cuffs so tight in them days i had no idea that we could speak out against police brutality my point is we can now file complaints an they get reprimanded or at least written up there are way too many bullies masquerading as police and still they see this all day long punks maniacs or ppl wigged out on some sort of drugs not to mention the mentally ill and the real dangerous criminals who can and will shoot a cop ! So my point was it looks bad but there are 2 sides to every story i agree the 70 yr old cop lost his cool and the guy was extremely bold an disrespectful so i feel the cop must be held accountable BUT so should the guy committing the offense …jus sayin

  • It doesn’t matter what the offence violence is never the answer, it teaches that violence solves things, it doesn’t, we are a fucking evolved species for crying out loud we can communicate, there is no need for physical repercussions

  • ….& had that been a man he would have shot him in the face…..

  • Fuck that cop and whoever thinks that hoes right!!!!

  • If you watch the fuckin video is says he got fired. Do you stupid fucks not watch what your posting? Sounds like he got punished to me.

  • Disgrace

  • I gotta side with the cop on this one, that little brat had it coming.

  • WOW

  • It’s funny how the “police surveillance state” has only brought to light that the terrorist criminal element is the “police surveillance state”.

    • good point… obvious answer… to keep / get us riled up towards “rebellion against authority”. to create a movement they can defend us from.

  • I don’t like cops that break the same rules that they Love to punish others for breaking but….and I can’t say this any clearer….If you spit on me I’ll smack the Shit out of you too…

  • Stop bitching you fucking idiots. You pay for this shit to happen. No one will do anything but bitch.

    • So what will you do? I’m just curious. There’s always at least one asshole talking about how ‘we won’t do anything’ while they themselves do absolutely nothing.

    • What I am talking about is simple. We are known as corporate america right. What do people do when corporate doesn’t work for the workers any longer. They strike right. What I am talking about will need at least 40% of this country to just strike stop working and stop voting, but everyone is so corporate brainwashed they can’t think past there noses. In seven days we could have our own country back. Back to the way it supposed to be. This is why I bitch people out. They go to work with fucking smiles on their faces and pride in their hearts paying the same taxes everyone bitches about. We supply their weapons, equipment, to rule us.

  • Fuck that kid if he woulda spit in my face he would have gotten it alot worse

  • Damn right face criminal charges. Child should sue

  • Psyco bastardi

  • Ok the officer certainly shouldnt have done that but i totally get it..i woukd have felt like slapping tgat belligerent little shit as well…im totally against violence tor any reason….but I get it..

  • I’ll say violence is never the answer but we don’t know the context of the situation and who knows maybe the little punk needed it! I know when I told my mom I hated her I think a bitch slap would have been called for when I was an asshole, out-of-control little shit teenager!

    • Or he could be an 8 year old with autism . U didnt read the article did u ?

    • just watched video but that is exactly the context that would warrant an arrest. I was raised with that kind of discipline so maybe I am hardened to it a bit but it is not behavior I continued with my own children.

  • If the kid wants to act like an adult n be lippy and spit at an officer he should be able to take it like an adult! I know he is a cop but if some adult was telling you off and then spat on you what would u do? Most people would punch them out !!! Kids need to learn respect ! This little shits are ruining this world because we aren’t allowed to put them in their place!

    • Wow, that was difficult to read.

    • Your actually condoning child abuse

    • Can I slap the shit out your child then?

    • I’m sure she taught her child with respect so he wouldn’t be in that predicament

    • My kid would never spit or talk shit to someone n if he did he better be man enough to take the consequences ( right now he is 2.5 little different, that “kid” is a teenager!)

    • So even through this logic it’s ok for a police officer to respond violently to an adult after being assaulted?

    • You’re saying that pretty much all transgressions should be met with a slap, or some form of violence. I really hope your child, upon becoming a “teenager”, never makes a mistake or does some kind of wrong in their life – because, you know, someone might slap the shit out of em… -_-

      I suppose you agree with hitting women too in similar situations… provided it’s justified using the same logic you have argued…? -_-

    • What if it was your kid

    • The 4 harsh slaps was uncalled for yes but one slap to put the kid in his place . N if a women’s gonna hit a man they better be ready to get hit back.

    • Like I said before I hope I raise my kid with enough respect that if he gets in trouble with the law he puts his head down in shame n not mouths off n spots at an officer! I’d probably smack my kid depending on what he got in trouble with the law.

    • He has autism you dumb twat

  • Shameful

  • Can’t believe they actually fired him.

  • If same child did same thing at his home and his mum or dad try smack him they’ed b in jail right now but this sheriff.. No criminal charges

  • The officer was fired. In this case, good enough for me.

  • Mean while in New Zealand

  • give me his name and address please……..

  • He may also be facing a bat across hiss face if anyone wants to get me his address!!! PUNK BITCH!!!!

  • lets do a face to face ,,no weapons..hand to hand…and lets see if you don’t come out of it missing all your teeth…..

  • I hope he dies a horrid slow agonizing death!

  • people are seriously alarmed by this??? no wonder children now (in general, not all) have no respect or accountability. i was swatted with a wooden paddle at school more than once for far less than whatever this kid did to get in the police car in the first place…. oh my god i am scarred for life with a sense of accountability and awareness of consequences!!!

    • The kid is Autistic!

    • bull shit… it is just more crap to keep people busy. why dont we ever see posts like this about real problems? yes.. every body has it in for the police.. fine.. could not care less… it is amazing that autism was barely known when i was a kid…. and autistic pretty much meant you were totaly checked out… but now every other kid has it ( though it is often hard to tell) and adhd… better give them meds… god forbid we teach them how to deal with life when there is a pill available… so much better to drug our kids than discipline them.. or ourselves.

    • C.p. Copeland autism is a whole spectrum it can cause a variety of behavioral issues. Your definition of autism as being totally checked out is a very simplistic view.

    • Some autistic people are savants. It’s not always about intelligence, it’s about the ability to deal with surroundings. There are trigger just like an epileptics or someone who has PTSD.

    • And a lot of the time it’s the schools that demand that the kids be medicated. And just FYI no I don’t have a kid who is austic. I have a child who has a seizure disorder and have dealt with people’s lack of knowledge all her life

    • April pitts…. it is not a lack of knowledge… i have researched and i learn things like a sponge…. what i cannot determine is exactly what i said…Where did it all come from all of a sudden????? autism was VERY RARE and now it is everywhere… ADHD or plain hyperactivity was dealt with,,, without meds,,, and was also comparatively rare. the first thing they taught us in psych class was that the disorder in the media would be diagnosed more than any other…. it is crap… now they label everything a disorder when the only disorder is childhood and parents that dont discipline their kids… with or without spankings… and as far as the school demanding my child be given ineffective and unneeded medication that modifies behavior at a time when the base personality is forming???? my lawyers be all over that and i would pay some tweakers to visit the principle while i was at it… school shootings are CAUSED by anti depressants and adhd meds are only effective on ONE RARE form of adhd that is caused by a physical problem in the brain… most adhd and this semi autism we see today are LEARNED behaviors, stress management, and attention seeking.

    • Linda Wiggins ….. if you read the article you will see that this child was not autistic at all… it is referring to another child who was arrested at school…. this kid was just a shit

  • O

  • So are we going to have Another year of this shit or are we just going to read about it on FB and not actually do anything? If we are still seeing these posts in 2017, then 2016 will have been another year wasted before anything gets done about this gung ho gun culture in the states.

  • “he may also be”… More like he should be facing jail time. Send him straight to general population with pig tattooed on his forehead, like the rest of shit that abuse their power.

  • The comments… Tell all about your shit society and why its so rotten. Dumb assholes reacting with violence as wild animals onto kids they should be educating in the first place, since they are your responsibility, slap yourselves. Subhuman cunts.

  • Wow?

  • WTF is wrong in this country , handcuffing an 8yr. old child . then slapping him …if he spit just wipe it off ..Cops are suppose to have some form of self control…

  • The kid diserved it. He is a punk kid.

  • punk ass bitch!!

  • There are always some people that will justify any actions by the police including shooting someone in the back as justifiable due to their actions. BS. Its police abuse and in far too many cases flat out murder.

  • Charge this excuse For an officer!!!

  • I could take a MF shooting at me,before I could take a MF spitting on me,I absolutely hate the police,and I agree,he shouldn’t have slapped him,but,I completely understand what made him do it

  • By any measure..that;s child abuse!

  • When you see this watch the cop who is buckling the boy in,
    you can see his hand go to the boys shoulder just as the cop that slaps the boy climbs in, when it is done the other cop withdraws his hand. Seems to me he had an accomplice, don’t it?

  • Grow up people the kid is restrained so put a muzzle on him if he spits. No need for revenge. Be an adult. Not another kid.

  • ???????????????

  • that aint no cop thats a dam coward

  • His head woulda been mailed to his mother and the rest of him woulda been buried in 5 random states of my choosing then I woulda ate
    breakfast on the burial site #HARSH

  • Joel Elliott Jr. Funny how he can get probable time for child abuse and some can’t get it for murder or poisoning an entire city full of children

  • SOP…

  • Well I hope so!

  • Kill that pig…then set him on fire…pig roast !!

  • This is how good police keep their department clean of abusers!!
    Wish it happened more.

  • Switzer, 70, retired from the Albuquerque police department
    hmmm we know what problems APD has with killing people…kid is probably lucky.

  • So police are child molesters. Big surprise.

  • What about that “cop super” who said “were not going to let cops abuse people in THAT manner” in what “manner” do they let “cop abuse” happen in?

  • If that was my child that Comp would be dead. I don’t give a damn what my child did you don’t put your hands on them.

  • still that cop sjould behave as an adult,he is a bully.

  • OMG….

  • SCUM.

  • i work in food service. If i lunge over the counter and slap someone’s kid when they are being rude, annoying, overly demanding etc…not only am i going to lose my job, but i would be arrested and have assault charges filed against me. I don’t understand this culture where it’s not okay for some, but if you are a police there is not any legal action taken against you.

  • Weak sauce. You gotta put your hip into it, officer.

  • But the officer feared for his life . . .

  • Some cops have a very low IQ…..that is the problem.

  • How do they even get their jobs.

  • Im not saying what that Deputy did was correct….however it looks like that little shithead teenager deserved that.

  • those who enforce the law are above the law

  • Good Job you piece of Shit!! you just altered that child’s developmental track into a negative spiraling turn for the worse

  • What right does he have smacking a kid that’s not his. Good on the officer for reporting his ass!

  • It’s time for people (kids father and family in this case) to stop waiting for a corrupt court to fix dirty cops. This cop should be forced to eat a gun.

  • The state will eat itself.

  • Auschwitz.

  • So I know the kid was disrespectful but if a cop saw my child spit on my face, I slapped my kid multiple times in front of the cop, would I get arrested? I’m not saying what is right or wrong but there are so many ways to look at this situation.

    • I would be in prison for beating that cops ass putting hands on my kid like that it’s disgusting

  • I’d meet with that cop on the streets and give HIM a few fucking slaps.

  • So, these days a parent can face charges for whipping their own child, but a LEO slaps a handcuffed teen 4 times and no charges filed yet?!?

  • Police Officer should know better than to respond to “violence” with violence, but what shocks me most is this; 1 cop slaps a kid…..(White kid…!!!) Outrage ! Several cops KILL kids on regular basis ….(Black kidS )…so few are offended…!

  • Spitting on someone should be considered assault. It could transmit infectious disease to another person.

  • he hit a handcuffed child there is no decision to be made this dont neeed to go to trial before a judge i clear what happenned my only fear is if he done this to a child in front of his partner on camra knowingly what else has he done off camra not just to kids but to the rest of the public im sure we see others come forward that also victim of his abuse i hope

  • Why….he should be treated just like any other child abuser…

  • I wouldve gotten out my pen and pressed it hard on top of his fingernail. It hurts like a sumbitch, and leaves no evidence. You wouldnt hear him scream, since theres no audio. Fuck the kid, he got off lucky. Give that man a medal, for doing what his sorry ass parents have failed to do.

  • You don’t hit nobody. It obvious this kid has had discipline in his life. He is already traumatized. His calling for help.

  • His ass ought to be handcuffed and slapped the same way and fired!!!

  • The pigs in America are out of control.

  • Are these sheriffs trained or just a bunch of morons with guns

  • “You will respect MY AUTHORiITY, because it trumps all else !”

  • Matt Potter

  • Bad

  • And this is what’s wrong with society today!……….a few more smacks from his parents and maybe he wouldn’t be handcuffed in a police car!………….

  • I didn’t watch because I can’t stand violence, especially against a child. Please let this cop be made to face charges and jail time for this horrific behavior. And never, ever let him carry a badge again, anywhere.

  • No NOT ok !

  • It’s unfortunate that the kid had to get slapped like that this by someone a lot older and bigger than him. But in a way, at least now that kid will think twice and have a little more respect for his elders.

  • I’m sorry but kid or no kid u spit on me I’m beating your ass

  • so if a cop is a disrespectful punk can we slap him. u people are stupid his anger should never interfere in his job. at no time ever sshoulde an officer put his hands on anybody while they are handcuffed and defenseless. thats bitch shit. and a grown man at that gonna hit a small ass boy while hes handcuffed

  • Glad he didnt shoot him, remember these kids grow up, and cops get old and decreped, scaley, wrinkled, helpless, karma is one of the greatest things to look forward to

  • Mr Lahey?

  • Spit on me? I slap the taste out of your mouth if you are male.

  • If he did spit at the cop then a little attitude adjustment was needed.

  • just your typical cop caught on tape

  • Handcuffs on a child wtf?

  • Hope he is charged big time!

  • Needs the shit beat out of him. Pathetic loser

  • Artificial drama… really people …. this happens and has happened with every law enforcement system,,,, fired …maybe… its not always right but respect is taught it does not just magically appear

  • Great. Put another one in prison population.

  • Blue lives

  • Kids needs be corrected. The word abuse is used to much.

  • “May be facing charges?!” Wth?!

  • Sick cunt… He must love handcuffing kids an beating them…. Watch this one closely…pig.

  • What an asshole!

  • Once a stupid Nazi pig always a stupid Nazi pig.

  • This needs audio..

  • Of course charges should be filled. The asshole abused a restrained child.

  • May?

  • cop going to hell

  • Did he get a paid vacation

  • Isn’t that ….called an “attitude adjustment”? That is how the universe responds to being spat on…….

  • anon ymous

    Well then it’s a good thing that you don’t have a job like a cop where you will be continously dealing with the disenfranchised, and mentally ill or I imagine you would lose it pretty quickly. Or do you have a job like that? Let’s hope for the mentally ill, and children’s sake, the answer is no.
