Don’t forget your bus ticket in the Bronx

YouTube video of cops beating up a guy in the Bronx.  Two cops haul him off the bus and hold him while he searches his pockets for his ticket. When he finds it and indignantly shows it, they don’t let him go but continue to manhandle him. Four more cops join in, they wrestle him face down to the ground and handcuff him.  With five cops on top of him, another cop kicks him. And that’s what they do if you have your ticket.
