Video of Houston Police Beating of a Teen Burglar Suspect

Last March seven Houston Police Department officers were accused of excessive force against teen Chad Holly after he told he was beaten by police during an arrest. A nearby storage unit security's cameras caught the action of the arrrest and this video was known about in the Houston community, but was ordered by a federal judge that the footage NOT be submitted for public. This is a move for the prosecution uses in order to build a strong case against the four officers charged with crime. However, the film has surface and well, you know the rest. The saga continues and so does the struggle.

This is nothing new. This happens all the time to Black and Brown men. This NEVER happens to young white males. WHY IS THAT?
