The video, taken from surveillance footage, was recorded in 10-second increments with gaps in between so the beating was actually twice as long as what was shown. It shows the moment two policemen chase a suspect to Clinton Park and Stevenson Street. One officer jumps on him and both of them use batons to beat him while he is on the ground as other police cars come screeching to the scene with their sirens blaring. 'Lay on the fu***** ground,' one of the officers shouts breathlessly to the suspect, later named as Stanislav Petrov.

That one was caught on camera...
I wonder how much LEO brutality slips under the radar?
They approached the vehicle and the suspect inside started the car, ignored orders to stop and allegedly rammed two police cars, injuring one deputy and disabling his patrol vehicle.

Would people give different responses if the title read: Attempted cop-killer beaten badly after long, high-speed chase ?
He ran over and injured one deputy and rammed another car then endangered countless lives by making police chase him.
He ran - all for a stolen car. He could have given himself up and the story would have ended there. He made the choice to try to kill the cops then get away.
Not saying these cops are in the right - they most certainly aren't.
But when you try to kill one of them don't expect a simple slap of cuffs on the wrist when your finally caught.
