Videos of police abuse in Imbaba police station

A friend of mine sent me an email with the links below. Someone shot these clips with a mobile phone inside the Imbaba police station in Cairo.
Of course this is minor abuse compared to the torture and killing that takes place, but this is caught on tape.

Update: Just to clarify for readers not familiar with it, the act of slapping someone on the neck seen in the videos is seen as humiliating in Egypt.
