17-Year-Old Secretly Records NYPD Officers Racially Profiling And Abusing Him

In this disturbing video, a 17-year-old boy living in New York City talks about and plays back a recording of policemen profiling him as suspicious despite him doing nothing wrong and then proceeding to verbally and physically abuse him. It’s disturbing stuff, and as is explained in the video, this is no isolated incident: this is the result of police policy, the need to fulfill quotas for the “stop and frisk” directive. Racial minorities are being targeted, stopped, called names, roughed up, and threatened — and for no legitimate reason. TC mark
