Two Police Officers in the San Francisco area have been placed on paid administrative leave after a Public Defender released a video surveillance of the officers horrifically beating up a man. The Public Defender is now asking the Federal Government to get involved in the investigation, after you watch this video you’ll understand why.

“Two Northern California sheriff’s deputies seen repeatedly beating a suspected car thief in a video were placed on paid administrative leave on Sunday.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Alameda County deputies, who were not identified, were placed on leave two days after the release of the video, which launched an internal investigation.
The video released on YouTube by the San Francisco public defender’s office shows two deputies chasing a man on foot. As the man slows, one deputy tackles him and punches him twice. The second deputy arrives and starts hitting the man with his baton. Soon, both deputies hit him with their batons as he screamed and alternated from laying on the ground and getting on his knees.”*
