Man Gets Arrested After Video Recording NYPD Cops

Moments after aggressively piling on top of a man over a paid bus fare, NYPD officers turned their attention to another man who was video recording the arrest, using that same aggression to pile on top of him and grind his face into the sidewalk.

Both arrests were captured by two other men with cameras, one man who recorded the first arrest, another man who recorded the second arrest.

The video of the first arrest has already gone viral, leading to an article in the [__New York Daily News__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/video-bronx-arrest-viral-article-1.1701889) as well as [__a petition__](http://www.change.org/petitions/william-de-blasio-investigate-the-bronx-nyc-police-officers-involved-in-this-brutality-and-take-appropriate-actions-against-these-individuals?share_id=KNMeOAyyfb&utm_campaign=friend_inviter_chat&utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=share_petition&utm_term=permissions_dialog_false) on change.org, demanding newly inaugurated New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio to investigate the arresting officers.

And the second video is now getting some attention after it was posted on Facebook Sunday where it has been shared more than 3,000 times (the first video was shared more than 90,000 times after it was posted on Facebook Sunday).

But the third video, the one recorded by the second man arrested, is still in the hands of police, according to the person that runs the Youtube channel, Nycresistance, who compiled the two videos into the video above that focuses on the second man arrested

The arrests took place Sunday in the Bronx, less than a week after an [__NYPD cop arrested__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2014/02/17/nypd-cop-attacks-man-video-recording-deleting-footage-man-recovers-footage/) [*__PINAC__*](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2014/02/17/nypd-cop-attacks-man-video-recording-deleting-footage-man-recovers-footage/) [__reader Randall Thomas__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2014/02/17/nypd-cop-attacks-man-video-recording-deleting-footage-man-recovers-footage/) for recording him in a subway, another video that went viral after it was posted here.

So it’s a ripe opportunity for de Blasio to send a message to the community that he will not tolerate this type of behavior from the NYPD, which was heavily encouraged by previous mayor Michael Bloomberg.

But that is doubtful considering de Blasio inherited what Bloomberg described as his personal army, boasting it is the [__“seventh largest army in the world.”__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Bloomberg-I-army-NYPD-State-Department-New-York-City.html)

Dariel Reyes posted the [__first video__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/photo.php?v=10202392388963371) of the cops shaking down the man after he had stepped off a bus over  a fare he had paid, even having the receipt to show for it.

And Christopher Ferrer posted the [__second video,__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/photo.php?v=509196905865728) showing the man who can be seen in the first video recording the police pile-on, now being manhandled by several cops while yelling that he didn’t do anything illegal.

One cop can be heard accusing him of spitting in his face, even though the man’s face was being pushed into the sidewalk in typical police gang fashion.

So we can bet that is a lie. Just as we can bet they had no legitimate reason to stop the first man after stepping off the bus. In fact, they offered no comment to the Daily News when pressed.

Both videos are extremely disturbing. The first video shows the man sitting on a short wall as the cops grab on to him while he tries to fish around his jacket for his bus receipt.

“Why are you holding me, Rivera, Delgado,” the man demands, apparently naming the two cops.

After more than two minutes, he attempts to stand up and the two cops attempt to wrestle him to the ground. More cops run up and he is brought down to the sidewalk in the typical police pile-on that has led to several deaths in recent years.

“Please don’t do this to me,” he pleads. “My face is on the ground. I can’t do nothing.”

“Please don’t fuck me up. Don’t fuck me up,” he begs before unleashing a blood-curdling yell.

“My face! my face!” the man yells as the video goes dark.

The second video picks up after they evidently have the first man in custody and is almost a repeat of the first arrest.

Below is an exchange on Ferrer’s Facebook wall about the video.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
