CA - Another Rodney King?
Authorities are investigating the arrest of an unarmed black man who was repeatedly hit with an LAPD officer's flashlight. The incident, captured on videotape, is being compared to the 1991 Rodney King beating.
The arrest, captured Wednesday by a TV news helicopter, showed an officer hitting the suspect 11 times with a metal flashlight after it appeared the man had surrendered following a car chase. The incident occurred just a week after the LAPD said it had successfully implemented reforms mandated by a federal consent decree after the Justice Department identified a "pattern and practice" of civil rights violations by the LAPD.
