Most people wouldn't find the photo to the right funny.

But Rochester, NY's 98.9 The Buzz radio show hosts Kimberly and Beck do.

It's a photo of Mark Schroth.

That's not how Schroth looked when he went to a popular bar on Rochester, NY's Monroe Avenue,  Saturday night, but it's how he looked after he was beaten by Rochester Police.

Wednesday morning, Kimberly and Beck, well known for their racist rhetoric, and hurtful, insensitive behavior, including once making fun of an African-American grieving mother whose teen age son was run over and killed by a Rochester Police cruiser, had a field day with the horrible beating that Schroth suffered.

According to reports, Rochester Police were responding to a crowd outside of O'Callaghan's Pub, when a Rochester Police officer told Schroth, who witnesses said was doing nothing wrong, to move.

Witnesses say that when Schroth told Rochester Police that he had a right to stand where he was standing, that's when at least one Rochester Police officer snapped, and began beating Schroth.

"Mark did not deserve this, he didn't do anything wrong, nothing at at all", said a witness who did not want to be identified for fear of retaliation from Rochester Police officers.

After several more RPD officers arrived on the scene, the beating continued.

At that point, officers also began beating and pepper-spraying, innocent bystanders.

One of those bystanders, a young woman, unable to see from being pepper-sprayed,
was assisted by a friend, who walked her over to a Rochester Police officer who was close by.

The young woman then asked the RPD officer for help.

The officer responded to her, "I'm not going to help
you with that attitude."

On their "Breakfast Buzz with Kimberly and Beck" morning radio show, not only did Kimberly make fun of the beating Schroth received, but equally disgusting, she went as far as condoning police brutality.

"Douchebag guy opened his mouth to the wrong guy and got batoned upside the head", the radio show host said.

Then, in a classic example of adding insult to injury (no pun intended), Kimberly says, "You're not going to get any kind of sympathy here on this show."
