Except, the guy getting beaten was a uniformed police officer.  This is eerie in the similarities.  Guy gets in argument with taxi driver. Guy starts to beat up taxi driver.  Cop, working at hotel off-duty, but in uniform, goes outside to intervene.

Cop attempts to arrest guy who, in turn, flips cop onto cement sidewalk and the beating commences.  But, unlike the Zimmerman-Martin case, this time there was someone with a cell phone recording.

Warning: The language is graphic.

The story is here.
