This is What a Stop and Frisk in Philadelphia Looks Like

A video posted on Youtube shows a stop and frisk in Philadelphia escalating and officers engaging with two men on the street in Philadelphia.

“He’s a f*cking dirty ass, that’s why. He’s f*cking crooked,” says one of the cops to kick off the banter.

One of the guys who is being stopped says “I didn’t do nothing.”┬áTo which the officer responds, “how do you know?”

The officer continues, “I’ll grab you up any way I got to. Why don’t you shut up. Everybody thinks they’re a f*cking lawyer and they don’t know jack shi*t…he’s gonna tell you how to do your job now.”

The police officer’s frustration seems to be with himself and his job as much as the guys he’s dealing with.
