By BBN Staff: Over the weekend, a disturbing video was circulating on social media showing three police officers attacking a man who had already surrendered.
The video shows officers entering a yard in Southside, Belize City walking towards a man with a white t-shirt. Seeing the officers coming his way, the man lifted his hands and surrendered by turning his back to them. But the officers instead of arresting or handcuffing him, proceeded to beat him on the ground and stamped him multiple times.
While the man was on the ground, police then searched him and continued to kick him before taking him away.
From all accounts, the officers are members of the Special Assignment Team.
