(Right Country) – You’ve heard of some pretty extreme examples of COVID enforcement as the world’s tyrants show their true colors.
But this may nonetheless surprise you.
Summit News reports that a new video out of Spain shows a police officer kneeling on a 14-year-old kid.
Because the teen wasn’t wearing a face mask.
This incident reportedly occurred in the city of Miranda de Ebro after police apparently “observed the boy walking with his mask incorrectly on,” according to reports.
Police claimed that the child tried to attack them, but this moment was not captured in the video.
The boy’s family denies the assault took place.
In the clip, the officer kneeling can be seen kneeling on the boy as he shoves his head into the ground.
The boy screams, and appears to have trouble breathing.

Police also claim the boy’s mother assaulted them and she was arrested along with her son.
Authorities claimed they used “minimum force” against the boy.
While the 14-year-old is clearly resisting arrest, this incident would never have happened in the first place without Spain’s draconian face mask rule, which dictates the coverings must be worn everywhere, outside and inside, by law.
As we have repeatedly highlighted, Spain has seen perhaps the most draconian coronavirus enforcement measures besides Australia.
Earlier this week we reported on how Spanish authorities are using drones and low-flying helicopters fitted with loudspeakers to enforce COVID-19 curfew rules on beaches.
We also previously reported on the case of two women in Spain who were beaten by police for not properly wearing their masks.
