A video clip out of Spain shows a police officer beating two woman with a truncheon because they are not properly wearing their face masks.
The footage shows two women involved in a confrontation with the female officer, who beats them across the arms and upper body.
One of the women appears to have suffered a serious injury to her arm as a result of the blows.
Although the women are wearing face masks, they appears to have committed the sin of letting them slip from fully covering their faces.
The police officer does not appear to be wearing a mask at all.
Spain has been one of the most draconian countries in Europe when it comes to the enforcement of coronavirus rules.

A man was cited outside a Florida supermarket after undercover plainclothes officers busted him for wearing his face mask incorrectly.
The incident happened this week outside a Publix in North Miami Beach.
The man, Dean Gonzalez, who was wearing a mask when he was confronted by police, insists he wasn’t trying to violate mask orders and argues he was entrapped.
“It was like a trap,” Gonzalez told Local10.com. “It was a mask trap.”
According to Gonzalez, he was speaking with officers when the mask moved beneath his nose.
“That was enough for the officer to threaten Gonzalez with arrest,” reports Local10.
In cell phone footage taken by Gonzalez documenting the incident, a masked man displaying a badge tells Gonzalez he can either receive a citation or go to jail.
