This is a horrible display of police abuse. I couldn't watch the whole video. I had to stop. Beware, not for the faint of heart.

A investigation is underway in Long Beach, California after a violent incident that erupted between Long beach police officers and a man was caught on tape, CBS Los Angeles reported.

The video, posted on YouTube, shows a number of officers surrounding the man on the ground and viciously beating him. The suspect is seen screaming and begging for the officers to stop. One of the officers is seen striking the man with a baton numerous times while the other uses a Taser on him.

The woman recording the video gasps in horror, “They knocked his teeth out. They keep tasering him! They beat the f@*k out of him. Literally I’m shaking, I’m so scared. They keep on tasering

That video had been deleted, either by the person that had uploaded it, Youtube themself or a third party.

If I said what I want to say the freaking MODS would pull my post. I will stop short at saying that those officers need to be put down like rabid dogs. Damn it! When are people gonna get mad? Those officers deserve death.

"TO PROTECT AND SERVE"....yeah.

Over here in Spain they have a saying -
"if you beat someone to #, you go to jail........why...because the state has the monopoly on violence and only they can use it"...

Is this the video we can't watch and others have complained about??!



I did a search on exact title and can't find it... If this isn't the one... Just goes to show Police are out of control. Not unless they've always been this way-- just now getting caught by big brother as the rest of us are. No privacy can be a bi*tch!!

Not that I advocate paraMilitarypolice!!!

I started to watch that on Underground Documentaries once and couldn't watch that one either.

I don't understand the point you are making?

Prior to the alleged beating, security camera footage shows the suspect fighting another man and refusing to comply with officers' demands.

"During this time when he kicked one of the officers, he kicked the baton out of their hand. When they went to try and go grab a hold of him again, he again kicked one of the officers in the head," Sgt. Aaron Eaton said. "Eventually, at some point, the officers were able to grab a hold of him and try to get him to roll over. He was still refusing commands."

Police say the suspect was under the influence of alcohol and may have been on meth.


So i am curious as to why you left out the part about him being in a fight with another man which was caught on security camera. I also have to wonder why you didn't mention that he resisted arrest, was drunk and possibly high on Meth.

For those not entirely familiar with the day to day in our country, well we have something of a meth problem in major cities as well as a "pharma" addiction that has been gripping our nation for awhile now. While i certainly understand the point of the OP, you have to see that sometimes people are so high they cannot do anything but resist arrest which can lead to things like this. There will always be people who have little fear of a cop and will violently resist any such authority figure.

While i certainly wouldn't advocate this level of abuse against a regular person there are also people in America who will only respond to intense physical violence. Especially those high on an illegal substance.

“They broke two bones in his right arm. They collapsed his lung on the left side. He has two cuts on his right leg, a cut on his left, a cut on his head,” Santos-Lopez’ wife, Lee Ann Hernandez, said.

Look I am a huge supporter of our officers because 99% of them are actually doing their job. What we are starting to see here is a hatred towards the police because of the few bad apples. Just keep an open mind people that not everything they do is bad and unfortunately they too can lose it.

Anyways back to the video. It was for sure unnecessary roughness. The dude with the baton needs to be suspended or fired. The dude running the taser needs the same. It's almost as if they are afraid of doing physical work. Very simply 2 officers could have subdued this man. They kept telling him to get on his stomach...well duh! if he's on drugs he's not going to comply. Still #ing amazes me that some can be so stupid in today's society with all the technology around them at any given point.

I never see any reason to use such awful aggression as this. The law is supposed to be above wanton beating as this. The man was down..all they had to do was wait for back-up and then cuff him.

There is no way the guy could have got onto his stomach with a collapsed lung..they would be facing murder charges if he had.

Regardless of what he did. Officers were beating a man that was already down and no longer resisting. I could HEAR the baton hitting his shins. "Stop Resisting" while beating someone is a freaking oxymoron. I don't care who you are, how tough you are or how much drugs you are on. Get hit in the shins and you will react by moving and writhing in pain. Then you will hear "Stop Resisting" and get hit again.

This is BS and there is NOTHING that justifies those officers ruthless and egregious behavior. A five year old could have cuffed him up before the first hit to the shins........

I hate criminals but we still have to hold Cops to a Standard of behavior or they are little more than taxpayer sponsored vigilantes.

Thank-you. Like I said earlier... Is this brutality because we're filming their bad behavior more then ever before or... Has violence up-ticked w/ these guys? I get that we as people can be disrespectful and loud but to go to this extreme.

I had a Cop get in my face one time because I didnt have ID on me but was more then willing to get it to him. I told him twice I only lived 2 blocks down for him to follow me and I would get it. I was dripping w/ being overly nice to this guy. I only wanted to help. This Cop screamed at the top of his lungs * I said NO!!* i don't scare easily but I almost crapped myself. We have noooooo defense against these control freak nut-cases !

Are they being trained to act overly controlling ?

I feel you should get treated w/ respect if your giving respect no matter the charges. You don't have to like the guy or the crime. Of course now days... Your guilty unt proven innocent and that can destroy a persons life.

All of you
ALL OF YOU AMERICANS

MUST call OBAMA out on this crap. OBAMA is the person responsible for this! Why? Because all he needs to do is send a message out to every police force saying that any cop involved in this crap WILL be jailed. If he did this it would stop. He hasn't done so has he? Thats why it's his fault.

Until you do this, those out of control thugs will get worse, and soon it'll be YOUR children laying in the road being beaten!

Because of T and C's, I provided the first 3 paragraphs and a link. Wasn't trying to hide anything. Along with the video. I think the video makes it clear that the man was down and was not resisting as the beat the crap out of him. I don't care what transpired before that.

So I guess you believe the statements of the police cuz that part didn't make it onto the video.

This coming from the guy who just a week or so ago was advocating shooting "thugs" regardless of whether or not they were actually criminals. Really?

Some drunks don't feel pain, some meth heads simply react with violence because they are incapable of thought. We have all seen how incredibly violent our society has become, and we only get a taste of it with videos like this but cops see it all the time. Considering some of the many messed up stories about criminals i have read and seen lately i really need more information to go all "Anti Cop" when i would much rather have them around doing what they do then having them not there and be at the whim of some jacked up animal looking for a thrill.

The lesson here is don't get drunk and get in a fight with the cops.

Is this excessive force? Probably.
Was it justified? Well, sadly, it probably was.
