Authorities probe beating video of Maryland student


edition.cnn.com

A Prince George's County, Maryland, police officer has been suspended, and prosecutors are investigating an incident -- caught on video -- in which officers wielding nightsticks beat a University of Maryland student, officials said Tuesday.

Authorities also are looking into documents filed by police in the case that appear to contradict the video, Prince George's County police Lt. Andy Ellis said.

The video of this is shocking.

I am split in two by this story. I am filled with a just and satisfied feeling since the cops got caught in a lie, and sad for the poor guy that got beat up. We can see the entire thing from start to finish, and they claim that "Documents filed by police allege that the two were causing a disturbance and that they struck mounted officers and their horses, causing minor injuries, when authorities intervened."
Oh, and for those who want, here is the pdf of the officer's charges against him. (also from the link)

From the video, I wouldn't say McKenna didn't provoke the attack. He probably mouthed off to the officers when he shouldn't have. Tensions were obviously high. But he clearly didn't physically assault any officers and the officer's horse didn't kick the guy as the official report alledges.

That is understandable and probable. This guy's team won some big match and everyone was excited, but mouthing off should not result in getting physically beaten. Surely, they could have let the man run his mouth and enjoy the post-game excitement without feeling the need to attack him?
