The events in this video reportedly occurred at the Sydney Mardi Gras parade. A press photographer was wrapping up filming the parade when he heard someone crying for help. What he found was a relatively small male being manhandled, punched, and thrown around by police. Is it right how they acted? Caution the video is contains mature language and violence.

[Update: Video of the man being arrested kicking and punching police]
