Police in San Francisco have released video of the suspects in the brutal beating of Tai Lam, reports the SF Chronicle.
The 67-year old homeless man was found dead in his sleeping bag in the city’s Financial District.
Authorities say the act was caught on video and is so gruesome, they have not released it. They have released less graphic video of the crime shot from a distance and of the suspects themselves.
One of the suspects can be seen kicking Lam, then walking away. The men returned a short time later to continue the attack.
It is incredibly vulnerable to sleep outside,” said Jennifer Friedenbach, of the Coalition on Homelessness in San Francisco. “Homeless people say they have to sleep with one eye open. It’s really common for people to come into our office who have been severely beaten when they were sleeping.”
