And i would do the same, if it is my child. Well, probably a few of smacks on the butt. Many believe to punish your child, even with one smack, it is
"abuse".. It is cos we love and care for their well being and falling into foolish habits or dangerous situations.
I think this kid did not want to be taken away from his mother, hence screaming and acting up like he did. This boy had his reason, i believe. If a
cop should slap my kid for biting him, it will not end there. If a child acts up towards another adult, that adult should talk to the parents. It is
the parents job in handing out punishment to their own child.
As an adult we should know by logic that we do not touch another child, no matter if we get bitten, or screamed at. I don't believe a uniform gives
you right to even lightly smack a child of this age. I will add that imo it was a reflex, and it does not seem that this cop hit him that hard, though
it is difficult to judge from the video.
Another thing is - unfortunately, not all parents will punish their kids as they should. Still, i have no right lifting my hands towards another
