Actually the camera spins around when he is maced, it is a second or two after being maced, but mace takes a few seconds to effect someone. Note how
he was spitting a bit a minute or two later. His camera even spun when the girl was maced.
When the "cop" who without provocation sprayed the cameraman in the face with "mace" returns to the cameraman's location, the only thing he has
to say is "Go home," or words to that effect.
The guy backed up, and the police moved down the street. That would be because that is also when the video ends, the guy left, the police had no
reason for any more actions. They also could be private security and not government police, currently many police functions are being handed over to
armed private security firms.
The "cop" is wearing nothing that would identify him as a police officer.
The head gear he wore is the same riot head gear in the 2003 clip I added, note how it has a small filter on the side, a face shield and the shape of
the helmet. There is also one frame where the police is close up, when he was hitting the guy with a stick (the stick also matches sticks in 2003)
The can of peper spray also matches the stuff from 2003. He has an insignia on front brest of jacket, not something usually on casual clothing,
although it was out of focus, and I have not identified it.
I could go on.
It defies credibility.
Honestly, the main point I believe it is possible is I know this stuff happens, I would guess you believe this behavior to be rare.
No one doubts that some cops abuse their authority, but to post such an obviously fake video as the real McCoy demeans this forum.
It is possible it is fake, they may have added helicopter sound, they may have added the screaming of people just wanting to get in there house, they
may have dressed people with police riot gear. They may have even have had the presence of mind to add three other police on the very edge of the
camera field for only the first 3 seconds of the clip. They are walking down the street, and that is where the police look to when breaking contact
and the screaming starts.
We don't need a high school or college film assignment to use as evidence of a crime being committed, at least not without some kind of disclaimer,
such as, "This is a dramatization."
It is not evidence, but it also can not be dismissed so easily, if there was a disturbance, and police were out trying to keep a place clear that is a
I have no clue if it is real, but I will not dismiss it yet, there were not alot of hallmarks of a fake, in my opinion.
If it is fake, they had lots of people yelling in the street for awhile just for this video. Notice the echo of the yell, it sounds about right for
outdoor, definitely does not sound canned.
Also 2 people walked up got sprayed by cops, but the one with the stripe took off, and the girl fell then cussed out police, this is the type of
oddity not usually in directed things, either they both run or both stay, rarely do fakes have mixed behaviors.
I don't know what this is, but I doubt it is fake.
