On Feb 18th, 2011, an observer captured video of police arresting a man on Foote St. for no clear reason. He was reportedly slammed against a police car hard enough to make a dent, and then charged with damaging the car. The officer shown conducting the arrest has a reputation in the neighborhood for pulling over drivers and detaining pedestrians for questionable reasons.
On Feb 21st, Copwatch conducted an interview at the scene of the arrest with the observer who recorded the arrest with his cell phone. While we were there, Copwatch recorded police detain and start to search another individual for walking across the empty residential street.
