Mentally Ill Homeless Man Severely Beaten By Police Because His Beach Umbrella was Too Big

Venice Beach, CA– A video released on Wednesday captured eight Los Angeles police officers beating, tasing, and hogtying a mentally ill homeless man as he tried to enjoy the simple pleasure of a day at the beach.
The man and his lawyer say that this abuse at the hands of the LAPD has been a pattern over the past year, and his hospital records show it.  They are now calling for a federal investigation of the violations of his civil rights.
