Who needs this

Eyewitness tells different story of viral Calgary police video

Police say 21-second Instagram video does not tell whole story and an eyewitness agrees

An eyewitness is challenging the Calgary police version of events after some officers' altercation with a man on Friday night went viral after being caught on video.
"If they are saying this guy deserved that? Not a chance, not a chance," the witness said.
CBC News is not identifying the witness because of fears of possible retribution, but CBC News can confirm the witness is in a position to have seen the incident.
A 21-second video was posted to Instagram Friday night which appears to show one officer throwing a man to the ground and punching him several times in the face while two other officers hold the man down.
Police said in a statement Saturday the officers were doing a walk-through of bars in the area when they were tipped off something was going on outside of the 1410 World Bier Haus Restaurant & Lounge on 17th Avenue S.W.
