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.
