Two cops from Bloomfield, NJ's police department have been indicted, and another plead guilty after a suppressed dashcam video showed them beating a man who was facing years in prison for "resisting arrest" (the DA dropped his charges right away).

The video -- shot from a second police car that crossed the highway median and rammed the victim's vehicle -- shows the cops screaming "stop resisting" and "stop going for my gun" while the victim, Marcus Jeter, held his hands in the air and one cop aimed a pistol and another aimed a shotgun at him. The Bloomfield PD's internal investigations department found no evidence of any wrongdoing by the cops.
