NYPD Takes Break From Beating Man To Threaten Videographer With Pepper Spray
by Carlos Miller
New York City police officers were so busy kicking and beating a man with their batons that it took them 30 seconds to realize they were being recorded.
They had the man on his back, ordering him to put his hands behind his back while continually beating him with their feet and sticks, making it impossible to actually comply with their orders as he was trying to fend off the blows.
After noticing the videographer, one of them pulls out a pepper spray canister, shakes it and walks toward the videographer with the canister pointing towards him.
“Move back, MOVE BACK! MOVE BACK!"
The incident took place in the Bronx and the video was uploaded on January 30, 2012. I saw it for the first time tonight when Cop Block tweeted it out.
