A Michigan police department has released body camera footage that appears to show an officer striking a 16-year-old runaway they were apprehending to return to a youth center.

User from MI: Hate to say it but that girl deserved what force the police had to use to detain her.

Cristy Gibson: little brat, she obviously is a problem or they wouldnt be after her in the first place

User from MI: I don’t see any punching whatsoever...I do see where she refused to listen to what she was told to do multiple times and wouldn’t move her foot

User from MI: Her choices entirely...to follow directions, which began with STOP! I don’t see any miss handling of her at.

Roxanna Sandel: The force used was mild,girl you're so Lucky you didn't get your A$$ whooped by those officers,kids these days were raised with a sense of entitlement, it's everyone else's fault,they didn't ask to be born kind of attitude, I want to make clear not all kids but I've noticed many that have this attitude that we owe them,kinda like the IMMAGRANTS at the border,they think we owe it to them to let them in our country so we can feed house a clothe and even their medical bills all so the demoncrats can have there vote to get and keep power so they rule us, sorry I got ranting but I mean it

are you people slow or what.? i bet everyone of your asses would be pissed if that was your kid. the police punched her 15 times. so you say it's ok if the police do it but damn if it was the mom here you would be saying that she is a rotten mother. get rid of your hypocrisy.

no this officer did nothing wrong!I watched the whole video multiple times and see nothing. The teen is combative and are the officers supposed to try and talk sweet to her to make her put her leg in the car?

all of these comments and none of y'all looking at the 16 year old girl do you know people are really scared of the police do you know sometimes people run out of fear this s*** is serious and it has to stop police abusing Authority you are a peace officer not an MMA fighter not a Marine. they are here to serve the public not to authorities people and yes it's serious in the black community police just need to stop harassing people it's too many police killing they are trained to use a gun so use it in a respectful way not take anyone's life this is pure scary

They did what they had to do. Nobody would complain if it had been a 30 year old lady. I have two girls and if either behaved that way I would congratulate the officers. Have respect for law enforcement. There may be some bad apples but they don’t all fall from the same tree. Girl was so wrong!

Should of slammed the door on her foot , bet she would not try it again. Just another failure to parent . Figure she could make a scene by defying authority. Who would want to be a cop under these kind of restraints ? No support from the top and the thugs are getting conditioned to resist . Sad when kids are raised to do and say what they want without consequences.

No wonder we have a problem. These brats have no respect for anything. Both teens deserved everything they got. How do you expect our police to be able to do there job if they have to put up with crap like this. Good job officers

These are tools they are taught to use with adults, not children. They could have 'hog tied' her and that would have been that. Punching her multiple times wasn't necessary. This was a grown man dealing with a teenage girl. It's not like he was defending himself, for crying out loud.

let's see now , Police can be very congenial and friendly if you are a law abiding citizen , break the law and now it's their jobs to serve and protect and enforce the laws so we don't live in total mayhem like this young lady seems to have going on inside her pea sized brain

you need to learn how to write. your story sounds like a 3rd grader wrote it.

police officer should be able to handle a 12 or 16 year oldsto restrain him not to punch him it's still child abuse and the ones that are used to run the law should know better than to break it!! .

She deserved everything she had coming to her! Being not compliant the officers are not asking an age when someone is being unruly. If she would have listened and followed orders she wouldn't have had any physical issues with the officer.

What a misleading headline. I was about to ask, "is this CNN?" Nope, it's ABC, in the same ballpark. I used to be one of those entitled millenials who talked about police brutality and militarization. That's because I got one half of the equation. Now I've seen the other half, I have more of a "yeah, makes sense" attitude. Everyone in these communities are 'good people' who didn't do nothing wrong. If it weren't for those evil white police officers, they'd have some sort of advanced civilization like Wakanda or something.

Police are paid to arrest criminals not discipline other people kids. it's a shame reports like this gives a bad look on law enforcement. you couldn't pay me twice as much to do.
