After strip club video contradicts police claims, jury sides with Oregon man beaten by cops
Travis Gettys

Jurors awarded the full $562,000 sought by an Oregon veteran who was beaten by police three years ago when he was suspected of drunken driving.

Jason Cox testified that he feared for his life as three officers threw him to the ground, punched him at least six times, and shocked him four times with a Taser after they stopped him June 28, 2011, in the parking lot of a Portland strip club.

Police claimed Cox was argumentative, furrowed his brow, and tensed his muscles as officers attempted to place him in handcuffs, reported The Oregonian.

But surveillance video recorded outside the Pallas Club contradicted police claims, showing that Cox did not swing at officers or reach for a weapon.

4. You can't train his kind of brutality

It has to come from the (lack of a) heart.
