San Bernardino County has agreed to pay Francis Pusok, the man who was beaten by sheriff's deputies, $650,000 in a settlement. The entire incident was caught on video by a news helicopter.

This ends any potential claims Pusok could make against the county or Sheriff's Department. But will the settlement deter further instances like these from happening again? UCLA law professor Joanna Schwartz joined the show to talk more about this.
