They are not cops, but a private security company.
This happened at a soccer game in Portugal, and security guys deserve that

yes they shouldn't have been hitting that guy like that in anyway. There were plenty of them where they could restrain him. I don't think he was going anywhere.
However when they did attempt to get away and were mobbed that is where I do not agree.

Just a correction to the correction: this wasn't in Portugal, it was a Benfica pre-season game in Switzerland.
PS: I don't think there are private security companies acting in public events as soccer games in Portugal, as far as I understand it (and I'm not a lawyer), they do not have any more rights than the other citizens, so they cannot arrest anyone (and the Constitution gives us the right to resist to any attack when it isn't possible to ask for the intervention of the authorities).
