Eight South African police officers have been arrested after a global outcry over the death of a Mozambican taxi driver who was handcuffed to the back of a police van and dragged along a street.
The officers were initially suspended from duty while the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) looked into the incident. They were later arrested.
The IPID said a second postmortem examination might be carried out on Macia's body. "The second autopsy is being considered. There have been so many allegations of assault, so this is just to confirm what happened," a spokesperson said.
President Jacob Zuma has condemned the incident as "horrific" and "unacceptable".

I dunno wrabbit... I do agree fair is fair, but we're not that low.
I've also thought about it and I do feel that they should be publicly humiliated in some way... a modern throwing of tomatoes, or tar and feathers.
I say they should be sentenced to a few years of community service; street-clean-ups, building maintenance/beautification, working with the underprivileged and aged... that sort of thing, something that helps better the country.
And that should be how ALL these lowlifes should be sentenced, to set an example to any other would-be bullies, that this is what WILL happen if you disrespect your duty and community.
Honestly, corruption cases should be treated the same.
