Seaside Heights (NJ) Officer Attacks Videographer


According to Chris, (via email): Me and my brother were walking on the boulevard right off the boardwalk. A police car pulled up by us about 20 yards away so I pulled out my phone ready to film. Nothing happened after standing there for a minute so we started walking away. We were about 35 yards away when the cop got out of his car and told us to stop. This is when I pulled my phone back out and started recording the officer walking up to me. He quickly took my phone and violated my rights. Me and my brother were separated. He was handcuffed peacefully a short while later. Eventually he was thrown to the ground and beat. I continued to be harrassed for not giving my ID and was told I would be arrested if I didnt hand it over. I handed it over without consent after a very long time asking what crime I commited. I continued to be harrassed and after a while they gave me a ticket for public nuisance and my brother was arrested for aggravated assault. He was taken away and subsequently beat in jail. We got him out on 25000 bond the next day at the county jail. He has marks and scratches all over his body. He also broke his nose. After all was said and done I asked Officer Anderson for his badge number but he told me I better leave and refused. More at: copblock.org
