At about 1am on april 22, 2013 Downtown Santa Cruz, Pacific Avenue. I rode my bike past two guys sitting passively on a bench at night downtown. Then a cop stopped and one-thing-led-to-another and the officer hand cuffed one of them and "spun him" ... slamming the mans face with great force into the sidewalk.

This video is now the catalyst for a possible Santa Cruz police dept. policy change.

The victim was not told in the hospital that he had been injured by an officer of the scpd. He only found out 3 days later when I (videographer Brent Adams) found him and showed him the video. The blood stained the ground for nearly 3 days in front of Dell William's Jewelers.

If a police officer slams a homeless man to the ground fracturing his skull and someone isn't there to video tape it, did it even happen?

You'll notice there are no ads on this video or any of my videos (except one because some music voided the possibility). I'm not trying to make $ on this.
