Police Beating Controversy - Dissecting the Video

Last month video of a police beating in Henderson spraked a controversy.  In the video officers pull over motorist Adam Green, believing he is driving drunk.  Five officers take Green and hold him to the ground.  We then see Sergeant Brett Seekatz come in and kick Green in the head repeatedly.  Green has settled with the state and the city of Henderson.  Why did the sergeant feel he needed to kick Green after he was already down?  What should his punishment be?  And what did that video tell us about the culture of cops?
