The above video was submitted by a reader by the name of Wil, via the Cop Block submissions page. He states in his description:
“I was simply using my First Amendment right to video record in public, when a police officer approached me demanding I.D. He then he grabbed my arm and threw me onto the hood of a police car. I was cuffed and kept with my face down on the hood for 10-15 minutes before being released. My First and Fourth Amendment rights were violated.
I have more recordings and plan to make a FOIA request for recordings of the cctv cameras in the precinct. Everything happened in front of the police station, cameras should have recorded everything, unless they mysteriously got deleted.”
