Dashcam Shows Cops Beating Black Man During Arrest

Officials in suburban Detroit appealed for patience and calm Thursday while investigators review why police repeatedly punched, kicked and Tasered, 57-year-old Floyd Dent, an unarmed black driver who ran a stop sign.
The January confrontation in the small city of Inkster drew about two dozen protesters affiliated with the Reverend Al Sharpton's National Action Network to police headquarters on Wednesday — following NBC station WDIV's broadcast of a dashcam video of the arrest.
Inkster Police Chief Vicky Yost told reporters Thursday that state police are investigating the arrest. She declined to discuss details about the case or the officers, who have been reassigned to administrative duties.
