Minnesota police officer's brutal arrest of driver was 'disturbing', ACLU says

A Minnesota arrest in which a driver was dragged from his vehicle and repeatedly punched and kneed by a police officer was a "disturbing and completely unnecessary" example of an excessive use of force, the state ACLU has said. Video recently obtained by the Minnesota chapter of the ACLU shows Buffalo Ridge drug taskforce agent Joe Joswiak initiating a traffic stop with his gun leveled at the driver's seat of the vehicle, shouting expletives at the driver, and violently removing him from the vehicle - seemingly before he had a chance to comply with the officer's commands.
