Fearing for his life, a New York cop pulled a gun on a group of teens having a snowball fight.
“Don’t fucking move, guys,” the New Rochelle police officer can be heard on video as he points his gun at the youths, who are down on their knees with their hands in the air.
The cop proceeds to pat each of the youths down with one hand while holding the gun, continually telling them not to move.
Once the officer realized the fear was all in his head, he released the teens with no charges.
The officer had initially responded to a “disturbance,” according to Raw Story.
The video was recorded by a witness who stated the following:
“They were having a snowball fight, ” she explained. “This group of guys was having a snowball fight and now a cop has a gun on them.”
These teens are lucky to have escaped the long arm of the law without injury. Perhaps they read New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s advice to his son Dante on how to deal with the police.
The video was originally posted on a site called New Rochelle’s Talk of the Sound but that site has crashed due to so many views of this video. The second video showing the cop releasing the teens is also on that site.
