A graphic video obtained by the New York Times shows guards at Clinton Correctional Facility beating inmate Leonard Strickland while in handcuffs.

The New York Times says the 2010 case fits a pattern of beatings by corrections officers at prisons across the state and a department that rarely holds anyone accountable, issues that have been highlighted in a series of articles over the past year by The Times and The Marshall Project, a nonprofit news organization.

In the video, Strickland, is barely conscious and being dragged by officers, while a prison nurse stands by, and guards can be heard shouting," stop resisting," according to the New York Times.

By the time an ambulance arrived, medical records said Strickland’s body was cold to the touch and covered in cuts and bruises.
