VIDEO: Outrage Over 'Police Brutality' After Man Beats Cops Then Loses Fight

A man was beating Raleigh police officers in the street, and is now being portrayed as a victim of police brutality.

Raleigh, NC - A video has sparked outrage and claims of police brutality after it showed officers surrounding and hitting a man on the ground (video below.)

What that video didn't show was the minutes before he was taken to the ground, which was also recorded.

The details to what led up to the incident haven't been released at this time, but it occurred Friday at Garner Road and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

The first video showed a man, later identified by family as Frederick Hall, 44, fighting with three police officers.

A witness told WRAL that she saw officers try to use a Taser on Hall, and do everything they could do get him down, but nothing seemed to work.

"They were hitting him as hard as they probably could, and he didn't seem even phased by it. He just kept going. He was swinging at them. It was everything they could do to get him down on the ground," witness Bonnie Kidder told WRAL. "I heard them say 'quit resisting,' and the gentleman was noncompliant, obviously."

The video shows Hall repeatedly punching the police officers, knocking them to the ground.

The fight moved out of the camera's view as officers were still attempting to take the crazed man down.

Then a second video was recorded which showed what happened as officers got him on the ground.

Six officers could be seen fighting to control Hall while he was on the ground. The officers repeatedly struck him and used control holds, but he continued to fight back.

At one point, he could be seen biting the ankle of a female officer who kicked at his face to get him to stop biting her.

The officers were finally able to take the man into custody, and he was transported to WakeMed for treatment.

Despite the shocking video of Hall attacking officers, many in the community are outraged after only the second video has been going viral.

The Save Our Sons organization called for firing all officers involved, according to WRAL.

The NAACP also spoke out against the video, saying, "Unlawful acts by a small number of our city police will not be tolerated."

Attorney Dawn Blagrove told The News & Observer, There is a lack of trust between the black community and law enforcement because law enforcement displays over and over again their utter lack of respect for the lives of the citizens."

Despite the video showing the attack on officers, Blagrove says that those facts don't matter.

"It really doesn't matter what happened leading up to it because the standards of care being deployed by our law enforcement shouldn't matter," Blagrove said, according to WRAL. "They are trained law enforcement officers -- we are not talking about a group of vigilante citizens with no training who are trying to subdue a situation. What could we know that would justify what we saw? What facts could change what we saw?"

The Wake County District Attorney Lorrin Freeman says that she's investigating if criminal charges are appropriate against the officers involved.

What I saw was someone who was resisting so much that equipment was flying through the air early on. Then with three officers sitting on him, he still resisted arrest. Sorry, NAACP and SOS, it shouldn't take 6 officers to arrest 1 man.

There is a lack of trust between the black community and law enforcement...".

No there isn't. There's a lack of accountability in that people who do bad things don't want to be held accountable. Trust doesn't enter this in any way. Smoke and mirrors.

"Despite the video showing the attack on officers, Blagrove says that those facts don't matter." this quote by attorney Dawn Blagrove is deplorable she should be reported to her state's Bar Ass. an attorney that states evidence should be ignored is a piece of work. Heres a thought hire her as a prosecutor for the state and let her say the violators tape of him being subdue and cuffed by the officers is just that and not an attack. Blagrove is as dumb as the guy who would not comply, only she has a degree to prove her stupidity.

This is why I would never could be a cop, I would have shot the MoFo. I would not care, Black, White, Drunk, Sober, High, "special" or whatever.

A bullet between his eyes would have been justified.

This isn't a Marquess of Queensberry Rules event. The more resistance by the suspect, the greater the amount of force required by the officers until he is subdued. Hard and fast is the rule. The longer you fight, the more you get hurt. PCP can make things messy as "pain" type holds do not work.

Play stupid games win stupid prizes! Dam lucky he didn't get the hot lead prize!!!!!! And the attorney, what Cracker Jack Box did she get her law degree out of? I thought ALL lawyers dealt in facts whether they were facts they liked or not! Guess this is the new American Justice system, only facts that they "feel" apply, matter, the rest are lies....

Stay safe brothers and sisters. Remember, just like I commented about shooting...practice, practice, practice...also remember training, training, training. This jackoff should have been taken down quickly with the united attack by the uniforms.

"Attorney Dawn Blagrove told The News & Observer, There is a lack of trust between the black community and law enforcement because law enforcement displays over and over again their utter lack of respect for the lives of the citizens.""

Well yes, you imbicile! There is a huge lack of trust because of people like you and your NAACP and ACLU comrades. This guy was very large, out of control, not even phased by the taser and you are worried about their level of "care"? This guy is swinging on a female police officer wildly and you think he is the victim. That is what is wrong with the black community in America is that people like you, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Obama, and all the rest of the ilk who perpetuate the lies on stories like this instead of the truth. These people who edit videos to make it look like the officers are in the wrong and then publish them as truth should be prosecuted. And as for the idiot attorney, I triple dog dare her to put on that female officer's uniform and display to us how to use the proper level of care on an individual like this. Either that, or shut the hell up! Go back to ambulance chasing and leave the real attorney work to those who have ethics and integrity. No wait, that's like an oxymoron - attorneys with ethics and integrity. Unbelievable! Until black Americans decide to stand up for right and stop festering in the wrong, this is going to continue to happen and we, LEOs, are the ones who are going to suffer for it because there are too many candy ass administrators who won't back us up. Why don't these folks start talking about the level of "care" between blacks in Chicago and other inner cities where the slaughter is happening and they don't care. Black lives don't really matter then!

Unlawful acts by the criminal element will not be tolerated either.

NAACP has become an organization to protect black criminals from the bad white folks who persecute them( insert sarcasm here). And that DA ?? READ THE DAMM LAWS on assault etc before you even begin to go after the cops involved.

It doesn't surprise me that BLAHgrove says it doesn't matter what happened before their viral video started rolling.

This POS is lucky he didn't get a bullet because it would have been completely justified!! The NAACP and that attorney need their heads examined or better yet, let them put on a uniform and let them take on this suspect and see what they do. In a stand your ground state, a citizen would have been justified in shooting him so why not police??

This is because of the nature of the natural man, Me, myself and I first and foremost syndrome. which lust after the things of the flesh. Gal 5:19-21, 19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Why didn't someone use a taser? That would have locked him up for a few seconds so they could get a handle on things.

That black man had to be on some type of drug, he was crazed Police have to take control for the safety of other citizens and especially themselves. If he would have been civil like most people, all of this could have been avoided. Its like they want to fight police knowing someone is going to video. And as we find out, there is ALWAYS bias and bigoted blacks who edit their videos to place blame on law enforcement 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸👮👮👮

This is honestly the only thing that comes to mind. We are seriously living in an alternate reality these days!

It will never matter why cops have to take the steps they do to take a black person into custody. All that matters is pushing the racist cops kill innocent blacks for no reason narrative because race pimping is huge business and no American will ever go broke stirring hatred against law enforcement.

FedupViewer, they did tase the Adam Henry the wires are hanging off of that animal in plainview. Yes animal, is the only way to describe someone who is acting they way this Adam Henry was. Seriously, he is lucky he was not shot and the officers used restraint for not shooting him. This is no Rodney King incident this is a violent animal in public that needed to be subdued. I am surprised we dont have someone from the Humane Society on explaining the proper way to subdue a violent animal that has been released into the public domain. For crying out loud NAACP get a life, go look at what you name proclaims, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is a civil rights organization in the United States, formed in 1909 as a bi-racial endeavor to advance justice for African Americans by a group.

Why not deal with the drug issues this individual suffers from, the lack of a father in his house when he was growing up, the lack of fathers in the black community at large. Why dont you people address the real issues in your community and stop blaming the cops and the evil white man for all your problems. Police brutality exists and it is wrong and should be rooted out and those responsible prosecuted, but when an animal is released into society and all practical means of restraint have failed, hands on, taser, baton, blows to the body, chemical agents please grow up and get a grasp on reality.
