Cop unleashing 12 punches to man's head ..... Police Brutality ?

The Camden County Prosecutor's Office is investigating the actions of a Camden County police officer caught on video punching a man in the head 12 times after stopping him on a street, officials confirmed.

Edward Minguela, 32, of Camden, said he was walking near the Fairview Liquor store in Camden Thursday when he heard police screaming for him to put his hands up.

He did, but was taken to the ground by one officer and then struck repeatedly in the head as other officers held him down, according to his account and the surveillance video he obtained from the liquor store.

officers were responding to a call for a man with a gun, and Minguela and the vehicle he was near matched the description given by the caller.
