Mayor Discusses Cincinnati Police Beating

Cincinnati remains on edge after six of the city's police officers severely beat a 350-pound black man while trying to arrest him outside a fast food restaurant on Sunday. The officers, five of who are white, beat 41-year-old Nathaniel Jones with night sticks as they tried to handcuff him. Jones died, and the city coroner ruled that his death was caused by his struggle with the police. NPR's Michele Norris talks with Cincinnati Mayor Charles Luken.
