This kind of thing doesn't happen in small towns
Things like this aren't supposed to happen in small towns like Santa Fe, Texas. Small town cops know better than to allow video such as this to be made public.
The police department did their best to make certain no one ever saw what happened -- it took over a year-and-a-half before the video was produced.
The Galveston County DA's office then did their best imitation of seeking justice -- they reduced the charge on the beaten citizen from a felony to misdemeanor resisting arrest.
Mr. Sergio Robles has filed suit in U.S. Federal Court alleging the officers involved violated his civil rights while beating him up.
