Two Fresno police officers are under an internal investigation following the release of a video tape obtained by KSEE 24 News showing the officers beating a homeless man. The person who recorded the video said while he did not want to reveal his identity, he felt compelled to hand it over to KSEE 24 News in hopes of protecting those who cannot protect themselves.
It appears 2 of the blows came after Beaty was partially or fully restrained with his hands behind his back.
unfourtantly you cant see the vid. these things have nasty habit of starting just when cops start to beat someone. im not defending the cops nor the man. but isnt a good possibilty that the homeless man resisted are started to become combative and actout violently.

Tell me, so you guys EVER sympathize with the cops? Or better yet, do you ever post videos of citizens acting badly with the thread title, "Idiot citizen picks fight with cop"?

That's right and that's why they should not be police officers. The man may be homeless but he is still a citizen of the United States and his rights are protected. These cops are suppost to hold up the law and protect it's citizens not beat them/taze them/shoot them while being handcuffed etc...
