Police beating? Reasonable force? Weird camera moves?: Inside the Michael DeHerrera video

Today, the Office of the Independent Monitor released a report about the April 2009 beating of Michael DeHerrera, with the OIM's Richard Rosenthal and Manager of Safety Ron Perea coming to very different conclusions about a video of the incident. Rosenthal thinks the two Denver Police officers involved acted dubiously and weren't honest in subsequent reports. Perea disagrees. Meanwhile, the DPD stresses that an angle change in the video wasn't an attempt to cover up the worst of the confrontation.
