Isn't Harlem known for drugs, gangs, shootings and high crime?

are you saying this behavior on innocent people is acceptable because they are in Harlem? Did you watch the video?

I did watch part of the video.  Who made the video?  There is one side of the story, but not the other.

I wouldn't want to live there, and I wouldn't want to be an officer there. 

It seems like they are trying to do something about gangs, drugs and crime.

I'm not saying that this isn't legitimate, BUT the shadowed 'officers' could be actors.

I do believe the accounts of the story and I believe the recording is legitimate. I have a serious issue with police and LEO in our own community because of situations similar to what is being portrayed in this clip. But until there is some under cover expose blazing the headlines and on 20/20 I don't think a lot of people will consider the ramifications of this kind of police brutality.

No, who pieced together the youtube video?

I don't know what happened before the recording.  I don't think the officer should have used a racial slur or threatened to break his arm.  

How are they supposed to combat drugs, crime, gangs?

Do you live in NY? Do you live in a metropolitan area?

I thought the same thing, since the kids said his dad was a cop.  These officers would have been in serious trouble, because his dad would have known who to talk to, etc.
