A video of a police stop in the Bronx has gone viral on Facebook, eliciting hundreds of anti-NYPD comments and leading to a change.org petition to have the officers in the video investigated.
The video shows two officers restraining and arresting a man who exited a Bx12 bus Sunday afternoon on Pelham Parkway near White Plains Rd. Police accused him of not paying his bus fare. Once he showed the officers his receipt for fare and ID, they continued to manhandle him. When he stood up and asked to be released - the male cop then grabbed onto him to try to slam him. Other officers arrive on the scene within moments and tackle him to the ground. At 4:10 you can see an officer kneeing this guy in the face.
The footage was posted on Facebook by Monroe College student Dariel Reyes.
