Legal Claim Alleges Sheriff Beating, Theft, Coverup

Lawyers have filed a claim against the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, saying deputies illegally beat a man lying on the ground, then took a trophy photo, stole money and a gold medallion from him, and used them to bribe witnesses. A surveillance camera video of the beating has since gone viral on the Internet. Christopher Martinez files this report from Oakland.
