NYPD Beat Homeless Man

Yet another black eye for the NYPD. Two cops are caught on video beating up a homeless man:

"On October 8, 21-year-old Ehud Halevy was sleeping in a youth center run by the New York synagogue where he's a member. Ehud is homeless, so his Rabbi -- who runs programs for at-risk youth like Ehud -- had told him back in September he could sleep there.
In a video that's now gone viral on the internet, two New York police officers are shown waking Ehud in the early morning. Even though Ehud explains to them that he has permission to sleep at the center, they try to arrest him. Then, the officers beat Ehud for almost 5 minutes straight -- even after Ehud can be seen lying down. 
And despite the NYPD's beating, it's Ehud who's being charged with assault, and he faces 5 years in prison." source: change.org
