Oh wow, oh wow.

This is serious stuff. Dude in shorts and a T-shirt approaches a group of armored cops in an open field at the CzechTek fest. Cop jumps on him and start beating him. The other cops join in: beating him while he's down, kicking him in the head, jabbing him with batons. All right in front of a guy with a video camera.

Having watched the entire clip, the second most surprising thing is that the majority of cops do seem to be behaving pretty well, even chatting with the crowd, at least while the camera's running. But I don't suppose that's much consolation to the guy at the beginning.

(That's a QuickTime file.)

In case you've been living in a foreign country or something, Havel's now in the ring.
