Shocking video shows police officer slapping a child after the boy bites his hand

On camera: The police department said that the unnamed officer acted professionally at all times

A shocking video has revealed the moment a  police officer apparently slapped a 10-year-old boy across the face after the  child bit his hand.

The officer, a member of the Eugene Police  Department in Oregon, was responding to reports that the boy was in the care of  his mother when his father had been granted sole custody.

A group of officers went to collect the boy,  who has never attended school and is illiterate, from Monroe Park where he has  been living with his mother, Stephanie Johnston, 28, in a bus.

But when they arrived on the scene, the  mother's friends told the boy to run from the cops, and one pulled out her cell  phone to capture the confrontation.

Pain: He grimaces as the officer holds him. The child  ran away when cops came to settle a custody dispute

 

One officer is seen holding the boy by the  hand and pulling him through the park towards police cars, where the boy's  father, 32-year-old Brian Wolfe, is waiting.

But suddenly, the officer hits the child on  the head with his right hand - causing the boy to yell and try to wriggle  free.

 

'You do not hit that child,' a bystander can  be heard screaming at the officer. 'You do  not hit an under-aged child.'

'He just bit me,' the officer  explains.

As the video continues, a crowd gathers and  shouts profanities at the police officers, while the boy insists that Wolfe is  not his real father.

People in the background shout 'he's just a  child' and threaten the police officers with lawsuits.

Officer Sam Kamkar from the Eugene Police  Department told KVAL that  the officer's response was calm and professional.

'He continues to display professionalism even  after he's bit by this 10-year-old,' Kamkar said.

The officer whose hand was bitten received a  very minor injury, according to the Eugene Police.

The child was in the custody of his mother,  which was against a court order for the last few years. Wolfe has a court order  awarding his full custody of the child - with Johnston getting  nothing.

The Department of Human Services is looking  into the case.

Yeah, definitely shouldn't have bit him.  That was absolutely slap-worthy.  Bet he learned that lesson.

Police really do feel that they're above the law at all times, weather on or off duty and it's really a shame for them to feel this way!

True gskeete. Like the black kid on the beach in Florida. Cops slammed him on the ground claiming the kid was giving them "subhuman" looks.
