Newly released video appears to show another example of police using undue force on an unarmed citizen.

The surveillance video opens with a Mesa, Arizona police officer exiting an elevator onto an apartment complex’s fourth-floor deck. 

A man later identified as 33-year-old Robert Johnson comes into view. He leans forward on a railing and checks his phone.

About three minutes later, four officers surround Johnson while he appears to be on his cellphone. They talk to him and he shifts his body against a wall. Then they grab him, knee him in the gut and throw several punches to his head and body until he slumps to the ground.
