Film shows student being beaten by Californian police
Video footage of an unarmed man screaming as he appears to be beaten by Californian policemen was being investigated yesterday.

A retired officer said the film reminded him of the day he saw the black motorist Rodney King on TV in 1991 being hit by Los Angeles police.

Officers in California were being investigated after video footage taken on a mobile phone appeared to show police repeatedly hitting a university student with batons and using a Taser device.


Another officer appears to use a Taser on the student. The film suggests that the final baton strike was delivered after he was handcuffed.

Roger Clark, a police expert and a retired lieutenant with the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department, said the last baton strike was enough to warrant a felony charge.

"It takes me back to the day I saw the Rodney King video on TV," said Mr Clark. In that case, six patrolmen were charged. Their acquittal led to six days of rioting.

San Jose's large Vietnamese-American population is already angry over the police shooting of a mentally ill man in May.

San Jose police said it had begun an investigation into the conduct of the officers who dealt with Mr Ho.

Four officers were called to his home on Sept 3 after he allegedly brandished a knife in a scuffle with a flatmate.

He claimed that he was not armed when the police arrived and did not resist arrest.

According to a police report, officers had trouble understanding Mr Ho and he was handcuffed after ignoring an order to stand still. The police have declined to comment.
