The boy put the mask on incorrectly and did not respond to the police comments. Then he was thrown to the ground.
A Spanish policeman knelt down on the throat of a 14-year-old child, as he violated the mask regime. The NIUS wrote about this on Thursday, September 10.
Law enforcement officials in Miranda de Ebro stopped the teenager and pointed out that he was wearing the mask incorrectly. They asked him to wear it correctly several times, but he refused. Then, according to the police, the boy began to argue and then even tried to hit one of the officers, and then the policeman threw him to the ground.

Twitter users posted a video. The footage shows a policeman kneeling on a child’s throat. Family members who were there and passers-by started to resent and demand the boy’s release, but the policemen handcuffed him and took him to the station. Now the family decided to sue the policemen.
We remind that at the end of May in American Minneapolis, African-American George Floyd was killed while being detained by police when a policeman was kneeling on his neck for more than eight minutes. His death sparked massive protests in the country, with riots and clashes with police.
