Footage of Victoria Police officers beating, verbally abusing, and physically humiliating a disability pensioner has been released after CCTV cameras caught the incident in late 2017.

The Age today reports that Melbourne disability pensioner "John" suffered baton blows, punches to his back, multiple capsicum sprays to the eyes, verbal taunts and a jet spray blast to his face after his psychologist made an emergency call to police, one of whom filmed parts of the incident on their smartphone.
