Camera Man Attacked during Stop and Frisk in Harlem,NY

I was walking by and I witnessed some arbitrary stops by the police, so I decided to stop and take a look. After about five minutes of watching what was happening, I remembered I had a camera on me. I was in no way trying to distract the officers; I was actually more than fifteen feet away from the scene. The officers began to try to intimidate me and even assaulted me. I have made a complaint at the NYC Civilian Complaint Review Board and they weren’t much help at all. I didn’t posted this video sooner because I was in fear for my safety. I hope this video is educational to everyone. My goal is for people to understand that it’s not American and not Constitutional for the police to conduct themselves in this manner and for the people to stand idle as if nothing is happening.
