Taxi Man Dragged Behind South African Police Van Dies In Custody


South Africa's police watchdog is investigating the death of a Mozambican taxi driver who was allegedly handcuffed to the back of a police van and dragged through the streets.
Video footage taken by a bystander of the incident has been shown in the country's local media.
A spokesman for the Police Investigative Directorate said he was "shocked" by the footage. 

According to report, police initially assaulted the 27-year-old Mozambican, a taxi driver, accusing him of parking his vehicle incorrectly in Daveyton, east of Johannesburg.
The video shows a large crowd gathering, as uniformed policemen tie him to a van, dragging him as they drive away.
He was later taken into custody, where he died.....

This is brutal even the police? OMG
