Brooklyn, NY - A newly released video shows two NYPD cops punching and beating a local hip-hop artist with their fists and batons inside a Brooklyn grocery store while the man’s hands are meekly raised in a surrender pose.

NYDAILYNEWS.com (http://bit.ly/1HRhORl) reports that the video, taken from behind the counter of the Roslin grocery store on Bainbridge St. in Bedford-Stuyvesant on July 7, clearly shows 24 year-old Thomas Jennings, who raps under the name “Sen Tekk,” attempting to surrender before being pummeled and eventually handcuffed by the officers.

According to Jennings’ attorney, Amy Rameau, police tracked down and confronted Jennings after a nearby pizza parlor reported that two men made off without paying for a $3 order.

Jennings reported he needed five stitches to close a gash over his eye in the incident involving NYPD officers Lenny Lutchman and Pearce Martinez.

Rachel W. is both right and wrong when she state that she smells a massive lawsuit and tax dollars sucked up for a payout. Her tone suggests that it would be such a payout is wasteful. Indeed it is, but the only way police brutality (and this was a surefire case of it , if I ever saw one)`will end is if taxpayers feel the pinch and cry out , "Enough! We'd rather spend the money on getting a better class of constabulary than the thugs that presently constitute our police force.".

I don't think we Jews get it. Those cops who are beating that unfortunate black man are just doing what they wish they could be doing to Jews.

A police force run amok is a danger to the entire society, not merely to their current chosen victims.

There's only one difference - Jews don't eat in pizza stores and the walk out without paying!

This guy might not have either, even if someone claimed he did.

Are you so sure that no one ever accuses a Jew of anything?

Frank I don't give a hoot if the victim is black, white, green or purple, Jewish or not, police brutality is police brutality and society cannot continue to ignore that these guys act in the name of all of us.

If soc tolerates this crime because it only happens to other people, we are all guilty at some level.

It's quite obvious that he is resisting arrest and refusing officers asking him to put his hands behind his back while they are trying to handcuff him.

Police are doing exactly what they are supposed to be doing to anyone who resists arrest.

The video shows this clearly.

You've got to be joking. Why do I feel that if this were a Jew being attacked by this thug in a uniform, you'd be screaming GEVALD!

You have to be really stupid to play a Race Card on this.

He really is resisting arrest and use of force is clearly justified, regardless of what race an alleged perpetrator, is or isn't.

Just because an alleged perpetrator is black, doesn't give him the right to resist arrest, nor does the cop need to be too scared, that the perpetrator will play the race card.

How was he resisting arrest? He was standing there with his arms up. He wasn't running, he wasn't making a threatening motion. And then the big bovan of a cop suddenly rushes him .If anyone is playing the race card here it's you, because if this were a white guy, let alone a Jewish guy, you wouldn't be claiming he was resisting arrest.

The guy in the video is resisting arrest. The cops are telling him probably to put his hands behind his back and he is not complying. These thugs know they're on video and all they can do is act right. He acts as of being inocent. He's far away from inocent and to all those smart people that know exactly how to take down a person that might have a weapon on him. Please come forward and show how to do it. Show how to risk your life for a business owner calling for help that he's being robbed.

Is there a form of life lower than "hip hop artist?" He resisted arrest and deserved what he got. I doubt the good cops even knew he was a tribal "singer," if they did, they would probably give him more...

But if he was a Yid, no matter how serious the accusation or egregious the crime, you and how many others here would be writing "Innocent until proven guilty," right?

I can't "resist" replying to those who insist that this video clearly portrays someone who is resisting arrest. I viewed the video a number of times and I don't see it that way. In fact, I used a stop watch to gauge the time elapsed from when the police first approached the suspect until he was struck by the second officer on the scene.

Fourteen seconds.

That's all it took. Imagine, if you can, what it's like to be confronted by five cops yelling at you and you have fourteen seconds to convince all of them that you are surrendering, before they start swinging their clubs.

Oh, wait a minute, this wasn't a human being who was beaten; this was the "low life form known as a 'hip hop artist' ". That means he deserves a beating just for drawing breath. OK, I get it.

So why should you be surprised when Jews get beaten or killed. It 's not as if they're human.
