Rochester, NY Police Sgt. Aaron Colletti Punches African-American Man
A video posted on Facebook shows Rochester, NY Police Sergeant Aaron Colletti beating an African-American man on the porch of a home while another RPD officer kicks the man after he is already down.
The video of the incident, which took place Thursday afternoon, also shows that same officer holding a taser to the back of the man's head in what is known as a 'drive stun', which is when a taser's electric current is deployed when it's making direct contact on a person's body.
At no point in the video is the man seen resisting.
In fact, as Rochester Police Sgt. Colletti is seen delivering four hard blows, including two punches to the man's head the man is seen cowering against the house, trying to cover his face and head.
The video begins with the Sgt. Colletti punching the man before two Rochester Police officers run up on the porch yelling, "On the ground now!, Get your ass on the ground!, Get on the fucking ground!"
Then, in perhaps what is one of the most disturbing points in the video, the man is heard telling the officers, "I can't breathe", which is exactly what Eric Garner told NYPD cops before he collapsed and died after being put in a chokehold in Staten Island in July.
Just a few seconds later, one of the RPD officers tells the man, "We don't care!"
