Five police officers in Birmingham, Ala., have been fired after they were shown in a dash-cam video beating an unconscious man with their fists, feet and a billy club following a high-speed chase.
The incident took place in January 2008, and the man, Anthony Warren, was unaware he'd been beaten until the tape surfaced in March of this year. Warren was knocked unconscious after his vehicle rolled and he was ejected.
City officials were contacted about it two months ago and they, too, were unaware of the beating or the tape.
The police chief called the beating "shameful."
