San Jose police officers caught on video using baton & Taser gun on unarmed college student

A cell phone video shows San Jose police officers repeatedly using batons and a Taser gun on an unarmed San Jose State student Phuong Ho, including at least one baton strike that appears to come after he is handcuffed, as they took him into custody inside his home last month. This video recently just got released, made by one of the student's roommates without the knowledge of police, shows that force was used even though the suspect was on the ground, and apparently offering no physical threat to the officers. Several experts in police force said the video appears to document excessive — and possibly illegal — force by the officers. This is what goes down behind the scene San Jose police force - excessive force.
