I don't know the background on this video at all, for all I know it could be fake. However it seems to be legit, and shows what happens sometimes when a Police Officer decides the rights of another person are not important. AGAIN: I want to make it clear I have NO IDEA the background on the video, and there could be a legitimate reason the officer needed to "take down" the camera man... he could have been threatening, could be brandishing a weapon, I just simply don't know.

Regardless, the officer seems to be in no harm, and does not ask the cameraman to do anything or warns him before attacking him.
