This is one of the most disgusting videos of police brutality I have seen in some time. Apparently the man fled an attempted arrest in a car, and then dumped the car to steal a horse from a party passing by, and rode off into the San Bernadino desert.
He was chased by police helicopters, and appears to fall from the horse and then attempt to hide in bushes. The police have meanwhile alighted from the helicopter and are closing in on foot.
The fugitive appears to decide to surrender and comes out of the bushes and lies on the ground in prone face down position where he is tasered twice in quick succession even when he has his hands behind his back, and is then kicked and punched mercilessly for more than two minutes by up to 11 police officers.
The video was taken from a news helicopter that the police on the ground had mistaken for another police helicopter, hence their lack of care concerning their actions.
In the two minutes after the man was stunned twice with a taser, kicked 17 times, punched 37 times and struck with batons four times. Thirteen blows appeared to be to the head.
After the police became aware their assault had been filmed they claimed dehydration of two of their members and a horse kick as justification.
These violent vicious cowardly scum need to go down for a long time and so does Sheriff John McMahon who appears to think there could have been some justification for the beating. There is not Sheriff, the man had surrendered.
The victim was identified as Francis Jared Pusok, 30, of Apple Valley, who was hospitalized with unknown injuries.
Cops are out of control in the US and the Police State that so many Americans fear has in fact arrived long ago. The thugs who carried out this assault are little better than the crooks they claim they want to protect us from.
