NYPD Too Busy Beating Man On The Ground To Notice Being Recorded

New York City police officers were so busy kicking and beating a man with their batons that it took them a little while to realize they were being recorded.

Here I thought the police brutality in New York was reserved for just Occupy Wall Street activists. But here a group of New York City police officers were so busy kicking and beating a man with their batons that it took them a little while 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 batons, and stomping him with their feet making it impossible to actually comply with their orders as he was trying to dodge the blows.

Once they finally noticed 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!"

This took place in the Bronx and the video was uploaded on January 30, 2012.
