“ Police in Southern California are investigating after a video captured four officers appearing to kick and punch a shoplifting suspect while they tried to detain him at a mall last week.

The incident happened at a Dick’s Sporting Goods store inside the Glendale Galleria on the evening of June 5, Glendale police said in a news release. The video, posted Wednesday on Twitter, shows two officers punching the suspect while he’s on the ground before a third officer joins in and kicks him in the face. “

This was all over television news the other night. It's true that the video does not show what led up to the beating, but maybe that's not really important and cops should be taught that they are going to be judged on whatever footage gets taken whenever it starts. Maybe there should be a policy that when the police have overwhelming numbers, they take a moment to explain this to the suspect and try to deescalate a little. I remember an op ed by Joseph Wambaugh from right after the Rodney King beating where he explained that before all the portable cameras, police would routinely administer beatings on people who had led them on car chases. Considering how many slow speed chases we are having now, I suspect that some people would like to go back to the old days.
