The video below shows police officers pummeling a man found drunk and shirtless in a Jewish youth center in Brooklyn. The video shows slight resistance to being cuffed — followed by a virtual beat down by the officer, including one officer who appears to assume a boxing stance. The man has been identified by one site as Ehud Halevi.
The Institute in Crown Heights reported the man after a private guard discovered the man. The man was sleeping when police arrived. The push on the officer certainly constitutes resistance but the level of response clearly seems excessive and continues for a prolonged period.
Eventually eight police officers arrive and handcuff Halevi, who was charged with assaulting a police officer, trespassing, resisting arrest and harassment. Do you view the resistance shown by Halevi to constitute assault on an officer — the most serious charge?
