Cops Accused Of Brutality: Caught On Tape -- Watch Now [VIDEO]
Three Cops have been accused of brutality in Bridgeport, Connecticut. After a video leaked on YouTube, the police chief from Connecticut's largest city pulled the three officers from duty on the streets.
The video consisted of two officers stun gunning the victim, and once he was down, kicking him repeatedly. A third officer arrives, runs from the car, and kicks the already beaten man.
