Miami Police kick, punch suspect

The Miami-Dade Police Department says it's checking a TV news video "frame by frame" to determine whether officers were justified in roughing up a suspect.

Wednesday's incident involved a robbery suspect who had led police on a lengthy car chase - weaving through traffic, crashing into a wall and finally fleeing on foot. The video shows officers catching up with the suspect and pouncing on him with at least one officer punching him numerous times and another kicking him.

Police say their initial assessment is that an officer's response was not appropriate.
