beats in Nigeria
… An Israeli border police officer who was filmed beating a 
Palestinian-American teenager on the edges of a riot in East
Jerusalem in July 2014 has been sentenced to 45 days of community service and
to a suspended prison term of four months, Israeli officials have said.
State prosecutors had requested a seven-month jail term for
the beating, which prompted international outrage when a video recording of it
came to light.
The Israeli news media said that the court handed down the
lighter sentence on Wednesday after taking into account the officer’s
expression of remorse, his service on behalf of state security and the
difficult circumstances in which he was operating.

The officer was charged with assault in September 2014 and
was suspended from the force. The video shows him kicking and punching the
teenager, Tariq Abu Khdeir, who is from Tampa, Fla.
