Viral Video Shows Ugly, Aggressive Side of ‘Stop And Frisk’
A recent video documenting an apparent stop-and-frisk procedure on two men is currently undergoing online scrutiny and exposing the aggressive, verbally violent side of law enforcement in communities of color. Released on September 30, 2013 via YouTube, the 16-minute video shows two Philadelphia police officers questioning two men using foul language and threats of physical violence.
While asking for identification from the men, the police officers repeatedly use aggressive language and berates the men for coming to their neighborhood, accuse them of dealing drugs, telling them to “go back to New Jersey” and claim they “weaken the country.”
