    Is it just me or does the title to this story make it sound like 3 police beat a man? I was very confused after reasing the title and then starting in on the story. Kind of feel cheated now, this is every day news in St. Cloud now days.

    I’m a racist and I did not assume it was black guys at all. I figured it was Romanians. They only come out at night, you know.
