This is just horrible!

A Southern California man was brutally beaten by Hawthorne police after they say he made threatening gestures at them.

Jonathan Meister is deaf and had no idea why cops were approaching him outside of his ex-roommates' home. He had been retrieving some stuff he was storing at the house when neighbors called police because they thought Jonathan looked suspicious.
