Vicious Cops Attack and Pepper Spray Innocent Citizens for Filming Them

Rochester, NY — A video uploaded to Facebook last week is causing an uproar as it shows multiple Rochester police officers assault and pepper spray innocent bystanders for exercising their first amendment rights.

As the video begins, a man inside his car is filming two officers on top of an apparent suspect. Becoming agitated with the way police are treating that suspect, bystanders voice their opinion — from a distance more than enough to be considered non-threatening.

However, that does not stop police from targeting the woman who is standing on the sidewalk in front of her own home. As the officer approaches the woman, he becomes enraged that she is not immediately submitting and giving into his demand to stop practicing her first amendment right to film — and speak.

The woman attempts to explain to the officer that she is on the sidewalk in front of her home and that the sidewalk is not his — to which the officer replies, “Yes it is my sidewalk!”

After multiple threats, the woman turns to walk inside her front yard, but, as one of the cops said, “It’s too late.”

As young children are heard crying in disbelief and fear, cops swarm the woman, tackle her, and pile on top of her on her own property.

The cops were not content with only arresting the one innocent woman and after they assaulted her, they turned their sights on the other man filming.

“You’re under arrest,” says an officer who is likely going to be the subject of a lawsuit that will cost the taxpayers of Rochester dearly. He then takes the phone out of the man’s hand and places it facing down on the cruiser.
