A New York police officer has been stripped of his gun and badge after pointing his weapon at a man who was filming an arrest in Harlem. The bystander recorded the entire incident and posted the footage on Facebook.

The video, which was recorded on Thursday evening, shows two plainclothes officers pinning a man to the floor in the lobby of an apartment building. One of the officers, who is wearing a black T-shirt, grows increasingly agitated with a bystander, later identified as Calvin West, who was recording the encounter. With the suspect still pinned underneath him, the officer draws his gun, points it at West, and repeatedly shouts "Back up!"

In an interview with local TV news broadcaster NY1, West said the officer threatened him by saying, "Move. Get out of here. I'm not playing with you all. I'll shoot."

Deloris Johnson, tenant association president of the apartment building where the incident occurred, told NY1 that the officer "held out the gun like he was one of them god damn gangsters or like a gang member."

Another video, purportedly recorded moments prior to the gun pointing incident, shows the officer leaving the lobby of the apartment building and walking up to a young man, later identified as 19-year-old Jahnico Harvey, who is holding a cellphone. The officer punches Harvey and drags him to the ground. Harvey was reportedly charged with menacing and disorderly conduct, and issued a desk appearance ticket.

The incident began with the cops investigating a double-parked car, according to the New York Times. As officers were speaking with the driver of the vehicle and his passenger, two men riding dirt bikes drove up and started circling them. With the cops distracted, the two suspects in the car tried to run away. The officers followed Dayshawn Bettway, 21, one of the dirt bike riders, into the lobby of an apartment building, where he was arrested and later charged with assault, reckless endangerment, obstruction, and resisting arrest.

I'm sure this cop is just one bad apple.. Hes not a representation of the entire nypd gestapo at all.. I'm sure one those "good" cops of the nypd would've handle things to different...
