Text version of Philly cops beating suspects

If you can't watch the clip, here's how The Philadelphia Inquirer describes its contents:

The video shows police cars chasing a gold sedan to a stop in the 3700 block of North Second Street, where about six to eight officers, with guns drawn, swarm over the sedan. As more officers race up to the car, one beats the passenger's side with a baton.

All four doors are pulled open, and as each of the three men is pulled from the car, he is tossed to the street and surrounded by three to five officers. Three or four officers begin trying to handcuff the driver and can be seen delivering at least 13 kicks to his head and sides, as well as several punches.

The passenger pulled from the rear seat is kicked by four officers and struck four or five times by an officer who appears to be wielding a baton. A canine officer stands nearby, restraining an excited police dog.
