Police Brutality Caught on Video

Surveillance video caught an officer in Homestead, Florida, pepper-spraying people and kicking an elderly man unconscious


The Miami-Dade state attorney's office on Friday released videos that prosecutors say show Homestead Police Sgt. Jeffery Rome kicking a 69-year old man unconscious and pepper-spraying another man repeatedly in the face.

The videos are part of the evidence the state will use to prosecute Rome, who was one of three Homestead police officers arrested last month in connection with a string of alleged attacks outside a Homestead bar where migrant and immigrant farm workers go for a night out.
