Since the riots in Ferguson, anti-police sentiment across the nation has grown to a frightening level and what you are about to see in this video will depict exactly what law enforcement officers are up against on a daily basis.
The following incident took place in New York City as two officers attempted to make an arrest over the weekend. As the officers detained an unidentified individual a crowd of spectators began to grow, quickly turning the scene into a potentially life threatening situation.
From what you see on a cell phone video posted apparently by an onlooker to a very tense confrontation on a New York City street over the weekend, a couple of NYPD officers were in a volatile and threatening situation that could have gone south very far south very quickly. The two officers a white man and a white woman, from what the video shows were surrounded by several black people protesting what appears to have been the detention of another black individual. Fortunately, the incident is said to have ended without gunfire, even though one of the officers is seen getting slugged in the face and the other appears to be struggling to protect her gun from being snatched from its holster.
Moral of the story, for those that wish to promote the narrative that all white police officers have a hair-trigger and are just waiting for any opportunity to shoot black individuals… You are dead wrong.
