Activist releases new video of alleged Houston PD 'excessive force'
Quanell X releases video of 2008 hospital arrest
By James Pinkerton
HOUSTON - Another surveillance tape released Thursday shows apparent excessive force by a Houston police officer on a handcuffed suspect, underscoring the position of civil rights activists who say police brutality in the city is widespread.
Community activist Quanell X on Thursday played a video recording made in a Memorial Hermann Hospital waiting room in June 2008 showing a man being handcuffed and then hit twice with a baton and knocked down by an officer with no apparent provocation.
