The San Jose Police Department’s internal affairs division is investigating what some citizens described as “police brutality” in a three-minute, one second video that has already been viewed nearly 100,000 times, and is being watched more than 20,000 times an hour as of late Monday night.

The video shows an arrest that took place in a parking lot near Story and White Roads around 8:45 p.m. Saturday night. A family who was driving through the parking lot saw the incident and started recording.

Roberto Tejada said what he witnessed Saturday night was an injustice, and that’s why his mother started recording the video.

The recording began with two police officers holding a suspect on the ground. Then more officers arrive and appear to kick and beat the suspect with their fists and billy clubs.
