Outrage in network due to a video of police beating a Latino immigrant
The video was filmed with a mobile phone by an eyewitness, and shows how several police attack Santos Porfirio Lopez, a 46 years old Latino immigrant.
“At first he unresisting. He was on the floor and started getting ‘taser’ and caned, then they started kicking.”
Porfirio receives medical attention as arrested, and their families complain that they do not allow seeing him because they presume that his condition is serious.
Santos Lopez’s family will sue the authorities, as the victim suffers from schizophrenia.
The Police Department Long Beach, Los Angeles, justifies his actions saying that Santos had resisted arrest.
