Startling video from surveillance cameras showed officers beating, macing, and stripping inmates in the jail of Henderson, Nevada. The sleepy suburb of Las Vegas was shocked to see corrections and police officers spray one woman with pepper-spray, use male officers to strip her, beat her repeatedly, and drag her naked body into a holding cell. Other video showed other officers standing, kicking, and kneeling on inmates and detainees.
