A father-of-three was caught on video beating his teenage daughter with a belt in public after finding her at a protest against police brutality in Colombia.
Norbeli Restrepo said he had warned his Karime Restrepo not to participate in a protest last Thursday in Armenia, Colombia, in response to the death of Javier Ordóñez, who died in police custody.
Norbeli is seen in the video arguing with his daughter and striking her on her legs as two police officers attempted to defuse the altercation.
But the father said he would carry out the punishment again to avoid seeing one of his daughters seriously injured or killed in a demonstration.
Lawyer Ordóñez died after he was seen on video being tasered and beaten by officers Damian Rodríguez and Juan Camilo Lloreda a day earlier in Bogotá.

Karime, 19, had been out eating at a restaurant and decided to walk through a part of the town where she had been warned not do go by her father. She then decided to take part in the demonstration before someone alerted her dad.
Norbeli told Noticias RCN that he was not in the wrong of having disciplined his daughter harshly because ‘when the dialogue fails, it is time to punish, to reprimand.’
He said he would carry out the same punishment to save his children from being caught up in the demonstrations, which have raged across Colombia for five days and left at least 13 dead.
One of those killed was María del Carmen…
