It is absolutely disingenuous to report a story started in the middle, based on two seconds long video clips stitched together.
It is also a misleading title, a more objective title would be, COPS RESPOND TO SCENE OF SNOWBALL FIGHT AFTER CALLED TO INVESTIGATE GUN REPORT.
You see the cops weren't there to bust up an innocent snowball fight, 2 cruisers were responding to reports of a gun, but that doesn't seem to fit the current agenda.

This has to be an epic new low in law enforcement procedures, a police officer draws and points his loaded weapon at kids having a snowball fight, in the wake of the snow storm in the northeast. And not to be outdone by simply drawing and threatening with his firearm, he spree obscenities at the kids as well.
The first video picks up the action in the middle of things so it is not clear from the video what transpired beforehand. The video shows an NRPD officer using obscene language, ordering the already-kneeling youths to remain down. The officer is holding his firearm with both hands, pointed directly at one of the youths. He then approaches the young man, briefly frisks him with one hand while holding onto his firearm.
Freeze! Moment cop pulls his gun on teens 'armed with snowballs'
This is the moment a foul-mouthed police officer pulled his gun on a group of teenagers - reportedly because they were having a snowball fight.
The officer, filmed walking from a patrol car, shouts 'don't f*****g move, guys!' at the group of six people standing at a snowy intersection.
This is beyond comprehension. What happened to, "Hey kids, you might hit someone walking by, why don't you take this to a park, or a less-busy street."
Wow. Just… wow.

Isn't New Rochelle renowned for this sort of thing? The name sure rings a bell...
eta: Oh, yea. Go to google, set your date range for the search 1/1/12 to 1/1/15 to filter out today's story, and you'll see a lot of stuff for "new rochelle cop" that isn't kitties in trees.

So you believe that as an officer pulling up to a gun call, before you go to investigate said potential crazed gunman you should first subdue the kids throwing snowballs with threats of death?

They don't even need to be breathing, they can be guilty of being black while dead.
