California police defend using spit mask on 12-year-old boy

Police on Wednesday defended their use of a clear mesh ’spit mask’ on a 12-year-old boy in an encounter in Sacramento. They also released officer body camera video which shows the boy repeatedly cursing and shouting that he can’t breathe after he is handcuffed and placed face down on the ground. Police spotted the boy running away from a security guard and helped detain him.
