Extended Video Shows NYPD's Ray Kelly Heckled Mercilessly

“From NYC to PVD, stop police brutality,” they chanted as Kelly fled the stage.

A longer video of the confrontation between a group of protesters and NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly during a Kelly's "Proactive Policing in America's Biggest City" lecture at Brown University has been released. "You violate our rights every day on the street and you expect us to be civil towards you?" one man shouts at the commissioner.

The video, made by Emily Kassie and the Brown Political Review, shows a coordinated campaign of audience members standing up to interrupt Kelly. "I thought this was the academy, where you're supposed to have free speech?" Kelly wonders aloud.

Protestors from the Providence area in conjunction with some Brown students, shut down the speech with their cries against Kelly's "stop and frisk" policy, and racial-profiling.

“From NYC to PVD, stop police brutality,” they chanted as Kelly fled the stage.
