This video showing the arrest of three youths in East Auckland has been referred to the Independent Police Conduct Authority following claims of police brutality. It shows an officer punching one of the youths several times in the head. The stolen vehicle failed to stop for police about 4.30 pm Monday 26 September on Alfriston Rd.

While it’s good that the police are actually doing something about youth crime for once, behaving like this is unacceptable.
