NYPD Beats Several People at Pete Rock, Smif N Wessun Album Release Party: Video

On the day of Oscar Grant‘s mother’s settlement with BART for $1.3 million dollars, NYPD apparently finds no problem with beating several people and threatening a mother and daughter. Their crime? They allegedly did not disperse or move fast enough after the Pete Rock and Smif N Wessun album release party in Brooklyn was over.

Thank goodness, all of this was caught on video and is being shown on hip-hop activist sites like @MrDaveyD blog. At one point in the video, you see some 15 to 20 cops beating one man. Was this necessary? No, by all counts, the album release party was peaceful and without incident. It was after the party was over, and people were outside talking and socializing when NYPD decided it was time to move in and get “these people” out of here. Our prayers and thoughts are with Louie Skaggs, whom NYPD beat uncon­scious and then, incredulously, arrested. Please watch the video, and leave a comment. –martin pratt

    Sad to say this but this sort of thing will get worst because the US is about to exercise “Martial Law” on all the inner city communities! This what you see on the video is only the beginning!

    That’s the reason why I wrote the book, The Most Dangerous Gang in America: The NYPD. I wrote about the many accounts of injustice victims suffer at the hands of NYPD officers and how they lie about it in court. Check the book out on kindle and the nook. It’s the most informative book about police brutality.
