Portugal - Jose Magalhaes beaten by police at football game while children look on
This is the footage that is causing a stir in Portugal: police beating a football supporter in front of his family.
An officer questions Mr Magalhaes, then punches his elderly father before using a truncheon to beat Mr Magalhaes, who was on the ground, while his nine-year-old child screamed 'dad'.
Another policeman, wearing riot gear and carrying a shield, grabs the child to keep him away from the scene.
Please don't watch the video with children around.
This is a very disturbing situation of police abusing force. I really have no words, the little boy panic breaks my heartůman differs from the animal by the fact that he is a killer; he the only primate that kills and tortures members of his own species without any reason, either biological or economic, and who feels satisfaction in doing so.
