Charge of police violence – dropped – World Today News

Security cameras recorded the arrest of a 17-year-old boy and his 23-year-old brother in a garage in Stovner on November 10, 2020. The arrest came after an incident of violence against a person in which both boys were later convicted.

The video shows the brothers obeying the police officer’s request to lie down on the concrete floor.

While the 17-year-old stands on all fours, kick the cop him. The boy thought the kick had hit him hard in the head. The police officer, who arrived alone at the scene, claims the kick caught him in the shoulder or arm.

According to the indictment decision of the special command for police affairs, the police officer must have noticed that the brothers were speaking to each other in a language he did not understand.

Then he is said to have directed the kick at the 17-year-old to regain his attention.

The special forces believe that there is no evidence that the kick hit the head.

The boy explained that the kick hit him on the left side of the head, near the ear. According to the indictment, the boy did not remember that he was released when he was released from prison before his brother told him about it.

The results of the Bureau’s investigation showed that the police officer had not committed a criminal offense and the case was therefore dropped.


Dagbladet has contacted the brothers who have just read the Bureau’s decision.

– We got upset. My brother feels let down from all sides. It was even documented with a picture of the head injury, says the eldest brother.

– He sits bent over on all fours and the kick hits just below the ear. When the video is angled from behind, it’s hard to see, he says.

The task force criticizes the police officer for not reporting the dismissal in his incident report, but concludes that it was not a criminal misconduct.

The eldest brother answers.

– The fact that he never reported it before we pursued the case is also appalling and we will look into the possibility of pursuing the case further.

– We will consider whether the suspension should be appealed to a higher prosecutor, says Petter Bonde, lawyer for the youngest brother.


When Dagbladet met the brothers in September last year, the older brother said they cooperated with the police during the arrest and followed all instructions.

– When the kick happened, I lost all confidence in the police, said the 23-year-old.

The night the arrest took place, the two brothers drove to Stovner to confront a person who had hit their father the day before. They found him sitting in the car in a parking garage.

A ruling by the Oslo District Court describes the violence the brothers used against the man as gross. The man ended up sewing up 16 stitches after being hit several times in the head with a fist and a punch.

It was a dramatic scene that hit the policeman who arrived alone. The victim must have had blood on the face and both brothers must have had blood on their fists.

The 17-year-old was sentenced to 90 hours of community service. The older brother was sentenced to 120 days in prison and is soon to be served with an ankle bracelet.

Police in Oslo have refrained from answering questions about the case pending the outcome of the FBI’s investigation when Dagbladet reported on the case last year.

According to the communications department of the Oslo police, the police do not want to comment on the decision and refer it to the Bureau of Investigation.
