An explosive videotape that appears to show a group of Houston police officers beating a black teen burglary suspect last March has led to the firing and indictment of those officers, and a flaring controversy.

A surveillance camera caught the end of a police chase of 15-year-old Chad Holley, who had allegedly burglarizing a home.

Holley goes right to the ground, face-down, hands over his head, as if to surrender.

But then, reports CBS News correspondent Seth Doane, one officer appears to stomp on Holley's head, while others kick him. One cop seems to land five kicks. Then, another officer punches him again, and again. As he's picked up, there's another kick.

"They just started kicking me from there, and I blanked out," Holley says.

The video wasn't supposed to be seen yet by the public, but was leaked by community activist Quannel X of the New Black Panthers Party this week.

He told "Early Show on Saturday Morning" co-anchor Russ Mitchell he was "shocked" when he first saw the tape.

"I was appalled," he said. "I was absolutely angry at what they were doing, these police officers, to this young man who was on the ground. You could clearly see he surrendered, he gave up, and the beating he took was absolutely unnecessary. It was shameful."

"We hear these stories all the time in our community, all the time,"
