Richmond man assaulted on camera for questioning a police officer's actions

RICHMOND, VA -- At a "Shamrock the Block" festival on St. Patrick's Day, a man was assaulted for questioning police's reason for arresting his twin brother. Video shows the officer striking the man first, grabbing his neck, and putting him in a chokehold. Another officer beat him with a baton. The man understandably attempted to defend himself from the aggressive behavior.

The Mohawk..

Is there a reason why a lot of cops shave their heads? Looks like the cop initiated the force.

Yes, the cop is a dick.

Riot Police get their Asses Kicked by Soccer Fans

The crowd was justified.

The crowd became louder and acted when one of the police started jabbing the boy in the ribs while he was already subdued on the ground with all those police on top of him. Did you see one of the police try to stop the jabbing? When they act outside the law, the people have to step in.
Had to laugh!!

more then 1 time when it should be 10000000 times.

Did ANY of you see what happened?

1 or one or ONE guy yea just ONE person had a backbone and went out there for what was right.

Only took 4 seconds for everyone's else back to straighten up and grow some balls.
