Police Assault Unarmed Black Man At Traffic Stop (Warning: Disturbing Content)
Published on 26 March 2015
"Cenk Uygur (http://www.twitter.com/cenkuygur) host of The Young Turks discusses yet another case of Police targeting people due to race and using brutality for no good reason.
Another grim chapter in the ever expanding non-fiction novel of the epidemic of unnecessary lethal force and brutality against minorities. This time the location was Detroit where a man, Floyd Dent, was beaten, tased, and assaulted by Police officials during a routine traffic stop. Dent, with no prior criminal record, believes he was singled out due to being black. After the attack Dent was hospitalized for two days due to injuries to his head and face. He has been charged with possession of cocaine, which Dent says was planted at the time of his arrest. He faces a hearing on April 1st."
