Long Beach man says cops brutalized him during 2012 marijuana dispensary raid


A screen shot showing a cop standing on Dorian Brooks.

Last June, Dorian Brooks showed up to work at the THC Downtown Collective in Long Beach, California thinking he would have normal day helping patients out. That changed instantly when Long Beach police raided the dispensary. Brooks hit the ground to surrendering (though he had done nothing wrong) when some cop comes over and stepped on the back of his neck while muttering racist remarks at Brooks. It was all caught on camera, despite the cop trying to destroy the evidence at the scene.
