Brooklyn, NY - Crown Heights Resident Capture Aggressive Arrest By NYPD Of Hasidic Man (videos)
Brooklyn, NY - Video footage, captured with a cell phone camera, shows a large number police officers manhandling a Jewish man who was trying to defend himself, constantly asking why he was being arrested.
According to news site CrownHeights.info The incident began unfolding within the eighteen minutes after Rosh Hashana had already begun near the intersection of Albany Avenue and Montgomery Street. Police officers pulled over a Jewish motorist who was in a hurry to get home just as the holiday was starting.
Passerbys called out to the cops to let the motorist go, saying that the holiday was starting. The impassive officers responded that “he broke the law and we will not let him go.” One bystander got vocal and police fixated on him.
