I meant that sometimes police over extend themselves, then used trumped up charges to try and cover their actions. If police, and by that I mean the less than professional ones, realised that in today's world cameras are everywhere then their actions would and should be beyond reproach.

De-escalation techniques are required for all police. If they can't handle a little razzing whilst they do their job, then they are in the wrong profession. If they want the public in todays world to respect them and the uniform, then they need to earn it and not expect it.

Just watching that video demonstrated to me that the female officer did not have control of the offender or the situation. Her partner!!! where ever the hell he was and her should have removed him from the group and dealt with him seperately. Defusing the situation quickly. Holding him one handed against a bus with a baton out is NOT a recognised Use of Force.

This is an over reaction by the officer over a simple smoking offence. If she decided that the offender needed to be arrested then she should have done so and removed him quickly from the scene, not made a show and allowed herself to be ridiculed for it.

As she said, it was her partner who preferred the charge against this boy, not her.

I am sorry, but bad people always show off in front of their mates and will always give the police a hard time. Don't blame the crap head kid for being a crap head, he is what he is and the police officer should know and be trained in how to deal with people like him, thats her job.
