A DEVASTATED father has shared a video on Twitter of alleged police brutality in the arrest of his son, who died days later.

Ángel Bejarano, from Mairena del Aljarafe, Seville, uploaded the video in a bid to bring attention to the alleged malpractice in the arrest by Guardia Civil agents of his son Carlos, aged 37.

The incident reportedly happened on September 12 at the gates of the deceased’s home, which caused him a cardiorespiratory arrest.

Carlos was admitted to hospital but died seven days later on September 19.

His father reported the alleged incident to the courts that same day and since then he has only received a summons for next February 6, he says.

Two months later and he claims he knows nothing about his son’s autopsy that would clarify what happened in the events that led up to his death.

A spokeswoman for the Civil Guard told El Pais that the case has been put forward to the judicial system and it is up to officials to act upon it.

“He practically died in front of the house. There he stopped breathing, ” Bejarano told the newspaper.

He started to record the 26-second video on his phone after the Civil Guard agents had reduced his son with “folding metal defenses”, according to the complaint

Officers had initially gone to act against an alleged case of domestic violence, according to the Armed Institute.

A complaint, filed by Bejarano and his wife, states that “the necessary medical assistance took a long time to arrive and when they arrived they were not life-supporting.”

Carlos was in the ICU of the San Juan de Dios hospital in Bormujos, with assisted breathing, from the afternoon of September 12 until his death on the 19th.

      The guardia civil is full of narcassistic tw*ts who if it werent for the job would probably be working a life of crime instead. These are the bullied school kids of yesterday that cant make it in the real worls so resort to this pathetic uncalled for behaviour. ITs about time they had a shake up in this organization …… people had enough of child idiots that think because they have guns and a uniform are bestowed some kind of never ending power grab to do what they want……YOU DONT !!!!

      Surely if people didn’t resist arrest and struggle then they would not need to be pinned to the ground to get handcuffs on them? So many deaths could be prevented.

      Why was he resisting? Was probably high on something and it affected both his belligerent behavior and his breathing.
