The fact remains that the homeless guy was on the ground being heavily pinned down on his stomach. He was never once on his feet once down, was he? So, tell me, how can one argue that the six police officers were trying to protect themselves? Shouldn't the one trying to protect oneself be the one being brutally attacked by six big guys while all the time being pinned down to the ground until one was asphyxiated to death?
P.S. there is no other interpretation whatsoever of the video concerning the homeless guy being on the ground and pinned down.
