Australian police's bully tactic

ss_Sunrise_101109.jpg

After watching that interview on yesterday's Sunrise, I can't help myself not to mention about this. When police saw a teenager not wearing a helmet, instead of issuing a warning or a fine, the police forced the teenager to deflate the bike tyre. What sort of police order was that? Unbelievable.

The teenager police victim already told the police that he won't ride the bike home, and the over-powered police forced the teenager to deflate the bike tyres (perhaps that way the police won't get charged).

When did police have such power to force a person to deflate his tyre? I am not a law expert, however, if they do, such unethical power must be stripped away from power-abusing police.

Watch the interview: Bully Police Forcing Teenager to Deflate His Tyres (Sunrise video, Channel 7)

The little law breaker should have been given an "on-the-spot" fine, and taken home to face his parents.
Those nice officers were doing him a favour, and may have save him from serious head trauma!

The innocent young boy has already agreed that he would not ride the bike home. What's the point damaging the young boy's properties?

Nobody "damaged the young boy's property", they merely directed him to let the air out of the tyres.

Did you watch the video ( http://au.tv.yahoo.com/sunrise/video/-/watch/22902031/ )?
One, the police refuse the return the young boy's pack of cigarettes. (Instead of returning, they threatening the young boy.)
Two, they forced the young boy to deflate his bike tyres with keys. That is an act of damage the young boy's property, although physically conducted by the young boy, however since it was forcefully ordered/instructed by the police with threats, it is same as being done by the over-powered police.
Three, the police was clearly taking the advantage that the young boy did not know about his rights well and possibly not knowing the police was abusing his powers.

So there was another kind act on the part of the police officers by refusing to return his life threatening tobacco product. If the "teenager" disregards his own health and safety, it is correct that the officers, hired by the State should do it for him.
Over 7 years of age we are supposed to understand right and wrong. The boy clearly, has limited "rights" under the law.
