when you watch the video a couple of times you can figure out that they are not cops. they are unarmed security guard. they dont have guns or even holsters for them. they only have batons for defense. if you look closely, only 2 of the guys are beating him. the guy in front to the right is hitting him with the baton, and the guy in front on the left is what looks like is elbowing him. in the back left side you can clearly see that the guy is yelling for someone to stop. not sure if he is talking to the guy they are trying to put into custody or the 2 guys that are hitting the guy that is down. but the 2 guys in the back are not hitting the guy at all. if you notice at the end that the security officer that ends of getting kicked is one of the guys that was in the back. which is one of the guys that wasnt hitting the guy. that is un called for. he was only try to restrain him.
fyi, you can tell by the dialect that they are talking in Portuguese. you can always tell by where someone is from by what dialect and how fast or slow they talk. i have learned that from working with hispanics for over 7 years now.

Two wrongs do not make a right
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.

Something that may have helped to the situation is the fact that this happened in Switzerland, in a friendly game between a Portuguese and Swiss team.
Most of the spectators were Portuguese (there's a very large Portuguese community in Switzerland), and the guy running across the field had a sign supporting the Portuguese referee, so when he was attacked by the security (not cops), the spectators may have seen this as an attack to their community, so they reacted in a more violent way than if they were all Portuguese, for example.
PS: as an example of how many Portuguese are in Switzerland, the security man that was kicked and left unconscious for some time was also Portuguese.

Freaking cops are not above the law.
