There was no reason for them to kill a man already in dire straits, they should be ashamed of themselves and be treated like any other killer. It is all on video, and is very sad. They could have just left the guy alone, but it looks like they just had to throw their weight around against an innocent, helpless, homeless man, already just trying to exist. Too many times deaths occur because police got involved unnecessarily. They could have left them alone.
