The Seattle Police Department fought to keep this video from being released to the public, but thanks to a lawsuit and intense media pressure the police were just forced to release it.
Here's a rundown of what happened from the victim's lawyer, Seattle defense attorney James Egan:
On October 6, 2012 Leo Etherly was detained by Officers Faust, Chin and Campbell of the Seattle Police Department on suspicion of a Hit and Run that occurred some distance away. Officer Eric Faust apparently became agitated at Mr. Etherly's questions, and when Officer Faust went to arrest Mr. Etherly, Officer Faust choked Mr. Etherly for some time period. At the same time, Officers Chin and Campbell held Leo Etherly's arms, splaying him out on the hood of the police car. Mr. Etherly's throat constricted as a result of the choking, causing saliva to pool and resulting in him spitting involuntarily as his airway constricted. Officer Faust believed that Mr. Etherly had spit on him intentionally, and responded by striking Mr. Etherly in the left eye with his fist. Mr. Etherly was dragged to the ground and struck in the face again by Officer Faust.Notice how the officer who violently choked and punched him tries to act like he is the good guy? He acts like he's looking out for the man's best interests after brutally attacking him and falsely accusing him of assault. That's how these control freaks operate, it's not enough for them to merely beat you, they have to lord over you after the fact, they want you to love them for beating you.
