Melbourne, Florida police officer Derek Middendorf was caught on the dashboard camera of his police car attacking and viciously beating 66-year-old Albert Flowers.
The graphic video shows the victim, Mr. Flowers, walking toward officer Middendorf when the burly police appears to kick him in the groin without warning or apparent provocation.
According to reports, the incident began when police responded to a 911 call that Flowers had been wielding a knife. The International Business Times reported that the officer “claimed Flowers walked aggressively towards him and could not tell if Flowers had a knife.”
