The San Francisco Public Defender’s office this evening released video of two Alameda County Sheriff's Deputies beating a man who is curled up on the ground. The first pig tackles and punches the man and then both proceed to hit him with their batons for nearly a minute, repeatedly striking the man in the head and all over his body. They only stop beating him after other deputies and SFPD arrive on the scene, making sure to get in a few final whacks before they stop their assault. Instead ...
