Nick Hammers Ex Police Chief For Justifying Car Smash Video

19 September 2016, 07:58 | Updated: 19 September 2016, 10:07

A former police chief tried to justify the controversial video of a police officer smashing a car windscreen - and Nick Ferrari let him have it.

David Banks, a member of the International Police Association, told Nick that the officer had the right to use force if a member of the public did not comply with his demands.

But Nick insisted that the officer was much too aggressive and said the officer gives police a bad name.

This is the video they were discussing, which appears to show an officer smashing a car windscreen after stopping a driver for not having insurance.

The officer has been identified and placed on restricted duties while the incident is investigated.

Speaking on his LBC show, Nick said: "Why not come in through a side glass? I'll tell you why because there's aggression.

"It's aggression, it's intimidating and someone like that really lets down the brave men and women who do the job.

"My heart soared because I thought you would say, providing the video hasn't been doctored and all the necessary caveats, this lets down police.

"Instead you've squirmed and tried to find a way to justify it. I really think you need to reconsider your position."
