Police Brutality in the age of cell phones

It's the age of instantly sharing stories via cell phone cameras, something that can be a good thing in these days of police brutality.

This story comes from a Walmart (of course) in Greenville, South Carolina.

Someone called 911 to report a man acting erratically outside of the Walmart. When the deputies arrived, the intoxicated individuals told them "I'm the 911". He then enters the store. In this video, you can see that excessive force was used to "subdue" the man. One deputy punches the suspect seventeen times in the head, while onlookers record the scene and scream at the cops to stop. Finally, a level headed deputy gets the testosterone filled cop to stop beating the suspect:

What ever happened to cuffing the drunk and taking him to jail?
