Fresno Police Officers Violent Arrest of a Homeless Man



This is not the kind of world I want to live in.

Two Fresno police officers are under an internal investigation following the release of a video tape obtained by KSEE 24 News showing the officers beating a homeless man.

Friends of a homeless man shown being beaten by Fresno police say they never knew him to be violent. But Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer says judgment cannot be made yet about the incident, and points to the man's record, which includes an arrest for attacking a Fresno County Sheriff's Deputy in 2004. Meanwhile, a local defense attorney says the video could be the basis for a lawsuit against the police department.
