8.) Iraq War veteran Jose Guerena died after being shot more than 60 times by the Pima County Regional SWAT team while conducting a "drug raid" (which yielded no drugs). Police had claimed that they saw muzzle flashes coming from inside the house, though Guerena's gun had the safety on and was never fired. His family received a multimillion-dollar settlement.

7.) This video isn't particularly brutal -- it only shows Phoenix cop Richard Chrisman planting a crack pipe on a mentally ill woman and grabbing her by the neck. The video's important because Chrisman went on to fatally shoot an unarmed Phoenix resident. Chrisman is currently serving a prison sentence for manslaughter.
