Worse than Rodney King? Dashcam shows horrific brutal beating of Detroit Man



I have not chosen to view this video because of personal reasons, I doubt I need to watch to convince me of the evils of police brutality to know it fully exists and is not just a "few bad apples".

Floyd Dent is an amazing man. He has worked his entire adult life, from age 20-57, for Ford Motor Company in suburban Detroit. Never a day in his life has he been in trouble with the law. Loved by his family and community, he's about as upstanding of a citizen as a man could be.

So, when the Michigan State Police in Wayne County, outside of Detroit, trailed Floyd's car, suspecting him of purchasing drugs, what happened next may be the most preposterous case of police brutality in modern American history.

Yanked from his car and put into a brutal, illegal choke hold, officers begin to repeatedly punch Floyd in the face, nearly knocking him unconscious. Another officer comes up and shocks Floyd three separate times with his Taser - putting him at great risk of death. In all, ten officers, all of them white, made contact with Floyd during this ordeal.

While in the hospital, Floyd was forced to take drug tests, which all came back negative for drugs. No drugs were found in the car.

They eventually charged him with not coming to a complete stop at a stop sign. Floyd even disputes this charge. One of the officers, as you will see in the video, was previously cited by the government for falsely planting evidence.

See the brutal video below and share this immediately.
