Days after damning videos emerged of the NYPD using chokeholds to try to subdue suspects during arrests, one of whom died shortly after, new footage has been posted to Facebook that shows an officer pointing a gun at a man’s head while he is being restrained. The officer then walks away to get his handcuffs and returns, only to stomp on the suspect’s head, while he is still on the ground. According to DNAInfo, this latest act of police brutality took place in Bed Stuy and the officer has been been placed on “modified duty.” The man they arrested was allegedly in possession of a joint.
