Video: police beating of a pretrial detainee

Check this video out.  It is wrong on so many levels.  A pretrial detainee was attacked from behind, immediately put into a chokehold, and then beaten over the course of several minutes with a blackjack.  He was also tasered.  I don’t even know why the guy was in jail, but it doesn’t matter.  The cops were fired for excessive force.  Apparently a lawsuit is pending.
