VIDEO: Omaha Police Brutality Caught On Camera Prompts Outrage, Investigation
March 27, 2013
Cell phone footage showcasing various misdeeds perpetrated by the Omaha, Nebraska police department brought to light a number of questionable actions that took place during an arrest earlier this month.
The video, filmed by a vigilant neighbor and posted to YouTube last week, captures cars in the middle of being towed, and shows one officer put his arm around a man’s neck, slam him to the street and then punch him repeatedly before another officer joins him.
Moments later, another man observed filming from the road gets chased into his home by an officer, followed by at least 9 more police officers.
