Michigan State Trooper Beats Senior Citizen During Protest In Lansing

During Tuesday's "right to work" protest in Lansing, Michigan, state troopers were witnessed and recorded using a baton on a senior citizen who was already knocked to the ground. Another officer had to step in to restrain the trooper from making further contact with baton.

What would have happened if the other officer hadn't restrained him?
