The police protocol of dominate and control is in and of itself Fascist. This is attractive to the type of people that become cops. It allows them to vent and express their violence onto others in a plauseable and deniable way. In this way they can perpetrate and yet still be considered a "hero". (Psychological profile).

I agree with Forplay - it was resisting arrest. As to him being there legally or not, there is no way to tell since there is no audio to know what the conversation was.
However, this was an overly excessive use of force. Like that naked college kid that got shot and died, the cops could have (and should have) used a taser or pepper spray on him. Physical beating should only occur if the suspect takes it to that level.
