Phila. watchdog group seeks police beating video

June 13, 2008 6:19:51 PM PDT
Philadelphia's Police Advisory Commission is asking to see the district attorney's enhanced video of a May 5 police beating. Four officers were fired shortly after the beating was caught on video shot by a WTXF-TV news helicopter; their union is challenging the firings. An investigation by the district attorney's office is still in progress; as part of that probe, the video was enhanced.

Advisory Commission Chairman Robert Nix said Friday that he doesn't want to compromise the district attorney's work, but would like to make arrangements to view the enhanced video privately.
