Dashcam video released on Tuesday, exposes several Inkster, Michigan cops as liars and thugs.
The incident began after police said 57-year-old Floyd Dent, improperly stopped at a stop sign, so they pulled him over.
When Dent stopped, two officers approached with guns drawn. He was yanked from the vehicle, thrown to the ground, choked, and severely beaten.
“The next thing I know, the officer runs up to me with his gun, you know, talking about blowing my head off,” Dent said. “Then he grabbed me out of the car and started beating on me, you know. I just couldn’t believe it.”
As the original two officers choked and beat Dent, “back up” arrived to join in on the lynching. Dent was subsequently tasered, three times. Prrof Detroit Police Abuse is out of control
