Is pulling a gun on black teenagers throwing snowballs a proper use of force by the police?

NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Talk of the Sound has obtained copies of two video clips posted on social media that appear to show a New Rochelle Police office draw his firearm and aim to at a youth kneeling in the snow after police responded to calls of a disturbance which one witness described as a snow ball fight.

h/t the video was posted on social media by @WattsWorld, sent to Talk of the Sound by @_KingMalcolm

The first video picks up the action in the middle of things so it is not clear from the video what transpired beforehand. The video shows an NRPD officer using obscene language, ordering the already-kneeling youths to remain down. The officer is holding his firearm with both hands, pointed directly at one of the youths. He then approaches the young man, briefly frisks him with one hand while holding onto his firearm.

The second video clip shows police telling the youths to get up and move along.

New Rochelle City officials did not respond immediately to a request for comment.

You can hear profanity being uttered by the officer holding the gun which is a direct violation of New Rochelle police rules.

You can hear a girl commenting at the end of the clip describing what she saw.

They were having a snowball fight. This group of guys were having a snowball fight and now a cop has a gun on them.

We can't verify who the woman is yet. I'll have more information when it becomes available.
