Protesters Arrested During Anti-Racism Demonstration on Long Island, New York
Videos of an anti-racism protest in East Meadow, New York, showing the arrest of two demonstrators, have gone viral when the demonstrators are reported to criticize the Nassau District police.
The video recorded by Mike Motamedian shows the brothers Tiandre and Terrel Tuosto, who were arrested in various incidents.
In a clip, Terrel is ordered by officials to walk on the southern side of the street. He crosses yellow lines on the street and encounters an officer. Soon he is pulled to the ground and arrested. "Don't touch him! He doesn't fight back" can be heard in the video.
In another clip, Tiandre directed the demonstration - which, according to local media, included more than 150 demonstrators - down the Hempstead Turnpike and called "peaceful protest." Tiandre was then arrested when he tried to move across the street at a red light.
The Nassau County Police Department has not yet released a public statement on the incidents, but Commissioner Patrick Ryder spoke to the local media about Tiandre's arrest, saying, "One of the people decided to jump into oncoming traffic. A car came to skid. Me can't endanger my officers, and I have to protect the demonstrators. ”Photo credit: Mike Motamedian on Storyful
