[VIDEO] Shocking Police Brutality Against Confused Black Man In Vallejo, California
Police officers in Vallejo, California have been caught on camera brutally beating a mentally unstable black man and threatening concerned onlookers. Cellphone videos of the shocking case of police brutality have caused a storm of outrage on social media.
The violent takedown occurred on Friday afternoon after officers responded to a 911 call form a Vallejo gas station. The caller claimed that a man was “acting crazy”. According to witnesses, the first officer to arrive at the scene chased the suspect for several minutes until he sat down and surrendered.
Despite the alleged surrender, the officer was filmed pushing the man to the ground with excessive force and beating him repeatedly first with his fist and his flashlight. When witnesses began to protest against the officer’s brutality, he threatened them with his gun.
A second officer later joined the first, telling the onlookers to “get the f— back”. The suspect was heard screaming, “I am God, I am God.” Witnesses say he appeared to be struggling against being handcuffed, but he was not armed and clearly in an unstable mental state.
