Rochester, NY Police officers Threaten to Arrest Man if he Doesn't Put his Cell Phone Down, In an Attempt to Get him to Stop Recording Them!

By Davy V.
Rochester, NY Police officer:
"You're being detained right now."

Although the video is short, and the driver, who did not want his name published for fear of retaliation, should have recorded the entire traffic stop, it's enough to clearly show the Rochester, NY Police department's 'gestapo like' way of intimidating innocent citizens.

The man, who is African-American, was driving in Rochester's South Ave. neighborhood, when RPD officers pulled him over for driving 5 miles over the speed limit.

Rochester, NY Police officer:
"You're going to be arrested if you don't put it on the car..."
RPD officers then told the man they smelled marijuana, which is a very well known tactic that the Rochester, NY Police department uses in order to justify illegal searches of motorist's vehicles.

In the video, an RPD officer can be seen, and heard telling the man "You're being detained right now", while another officer tells the man "You're going to be arrested right now if you don't put it on the car... you're interfering with our investigation."

At the end of the video, one of the officers tells the man "This ain't a big deal", after the man questions why they are harassing him and telling him to put his phone down.

The officers were referring to the man's cell phone.

This incident reminds me of Rochester, NY Police officer Mario Masic, who arrested Emily Good in May of 2011, because she videotaped Masic and other RPD officers conducting a racially-profiled traffic stop of an African-American motorist.
