Apparent Police Beating Captured on Video

by TChris

In an incident that calls to mind Rodney King, cameras have again captured an instance of Los Angeles police interaction with a crime suspect that appears to be abusive. News footage from a helicopter shows a man driving a car (apparently stolen) to the end of a dead-end street, then running down a path.

After [running] about 30 yards, the man appears to surrender by putting his hands in the air and dropping to the ground. Then as two officers have him on the ground, the third officer arrives and is seen apparently trying to kick the suspect in the head and striking his upper back and neck at least 11 times with a flashlight.

The officers involved were from the Southeast Division of the LAPD.
