Smile! You’re on Camera! Surveillance Video Catches Long Island Cops Beating Man

InfoWars | Adan Salazar

LONG ISLAND — Disturbing footage has emerged corroborating a Long Island man’s account of a police encounter late last month which left him bruised and bloodied at the hands of two Nassau County cops.

On April 25, police pulled over Kyle Howell, 20, from Westbury, for the flimsy pretext of having a broken windshield.

In the video, two officers can be seen approaching his vehicle and boxing it in from both sides.

Next, the officers open up Howell’s passenger and driver’s side doors, at which point Howell says he reached for a paper that was about to fly out.

That was one of the last things he says he remembers before blacking out.




“My paycheck started to fly out the door,” Howell stated at a press conference.

“I went to go reach for it, and the next thing you know, I got a knee to the face. Then the next thing I remember, I was in the hospital…You can see the damage that happened.”

According to WABC, police had it in for Howell and had pulled him over multiple times in the weeks prior to the beating.

Howell says the same police had threatened him with a pummeling during a previous traffic stop for recording them.

“The next time you record me I will use physical force to stop you,” Howell says an officer had threatened.

He proceeded, however, to film his next encounter, and the cops followed through with their threat.

Police charged Howell with resisting arrest, assaulting police officers and tampering with evidence, according to Newsday, claiming he attempted to eat a bag of marijuana and that he was also in possession of a bag that tested positive for cocaine residue.

Howell says the charges are fabricated; he didn’t fight back, had no drugs and was only chewing gum.

Oddly enough, he was not charged with possession of a controlled substance.

After posting bail, Howell and his father retrieved surveillance footage of his beating from a nearby business.

“Prosecutors launched a probe after seeing the video, and police internal affairs investigators also are looking into the officers’ actions,” reports Newsday.
