It appeared Mr. Davis was not resisting but was reapetedly beat and kicked by police until he was laying in pool of his blood. Another New Orleans officer ordered an AP producer to stop the camerman's filming, when he provided press credentials the AP producer was thrown against a car and punched in the stomach. The next day three officers were suspended and charged with assault/battery.
