"Phillip White of Cumberland County died in police custody after two police officers violently beat him and let a K-9 maul his face." witnesses say, SIA informs citing the RIA Novosti.
Officials are investigating White’s death, while witnesses told NBC10 that the officers beat the man who was already unconscious.
"They punched him, stomped him, kicked him and then they let the dog out of the car," said neighbor and eyewitness Ricardo Garcia. "The dog bit him on his face and around his body. There's no call for that. Once a man is handcuffed and unconscious, you should have stuck him in the patrol car and take him to the police station. Instead they decided to beat him right here".
