This is apparently being investigated. But you know…cops investigating cops and all that fun stuff. A cop apparently tried to stop the filming of an arrest today and a lot of people are upset. Here’s the video of the arrest. Some guy had to be tasered and apparently attacked a cop.
The guy who was filming says the cops threatened to take his phone and says the police tried to stop him from filming.
One of the officers tells Khan that the man police are arresting is “going to spit in your face, you’re going to get AIDS.”
At least a spokesperson for the police has said “Clearly there is more work that we have to do. This is very much a teaching moment,” so it sounds like they know it wasn’t handled properly.
