This is a clear case of harrassment with the intent of pushing this man to a point of violence. They violated his 4th amendment rights by searching his back pack without a warrant, they goaded him into a state of anger, then as the cowards they are they beat him to death. They should recieve the same treatment they gave that poor defenseless man. I would love to be on that Jury. There are too many people in who, given a badge believe they are free to treat people they view as lessor then them selves as less then human. These men showed no natural human empathy and are not fit to be police officers. Even those that showed up on the scene were like a pack of  wolves after a defenseless prey. They should get a minumum of 25 years in prison.
