'He Doesn't Look Human,' says innocent guy who was blinded and disfigured after being beaten nearly to death by seven cops.

  Christopher Bailey is suing the Los Angeles County Sheriff's department after he was beaten nearly to death during a traffic stop. Bailey says he did everything the police asked him to do but they beat the hell out of him anyway. "I really feared for my life, I thought I was going to die," Bailey said. The sheriff's department is choosing to remain silent and only released a canned statement about their use of force. "He doesn't even look human," someone can be heard saying in the video as Bailey is loaded onto a gurney, unable to see through his swollen eyes. "This was just a beat down. This was a gang-like beat down of a melanated citizen," the lawyer says. Link to watch the video:
