Police Don't Know the Rules of Engagement?

Having lived for a quarter-of-a-century begond the Green Line, we were always instructed that we cannot shoot at a fleeing rockthrower or even a Molotov cocktail thrower because once he is fleeing and has turned his back, he is no longer presenting any immediate danger. This was ridiculous during the last two Intifadas but, well, that was the law.

You'd think the police know the law, right?

So why are they trying to smack this kid in the head when he has his back to them and is fleeing?

And watch here a policeman using unrestrained and unprovoked force unduly.
