A man who apparently was double-parked at a store buying fried chicken before he was pulled over in the parking lot of an apartment complex in New York City was dragged out of his car by NYPD cops who began beating him in front of a crowd of outraged witnesses.
People will predictably say that we don’t know for sure what happened in the moments before three cops pulled the man out of his car and began beating him.
But neither did the NYPD cop who ran up out of nowhere and tried to jump over other officers to get his punches in right after the 1:30 mark.
A professional cop would have run up and tried to ensure the growing hostile crowd of witnesses did not intervene with the arrest.
But cops have that pack dog mentality where they will run up and start punching, even if they have no clue about the situation. And especially if it is obvious the person being beaten is already under control.
The video was uploaded Tuesday night to Facebook by Stephanie Genaro. The cops were from the department’s 47th Precinct in the Bronx.
The man recording, who was in the back seat when the driver was pulled out, explains after the 2:45 mark that the incident began when the driver was double-parked at a store to buy some chicken, but was told to leave by a store employee.
Words were exchanged but the driver left, only for the cops to pull him out of a the car in the apartment complex.
We will update this when we receive more information.
