SAN JOSE, Calif. — A newly enhanced video of the arrest of a San Jose State University student further deepens the questions about why police repeatedly struck him with batons and shocked him with a Taser, as the student never speaks defiantly to the officers.

The video, taken with a cell phone by a roommate of Phuong Ho inside their house, shows Ho saying over and over, "I'm just looking for my glasses ... I'm looking for my glasses" as he is struck. Ho's glasses had fallen off earlier in the encounter as an officer shoved him.
