Outrage is boiling over due to images and video posted by Talk of the Sound depicting a New Rochelle police officer holding a gun on, and using profane language with, a group of teens that one clearly shaken witness claims were simply having a snowball fight when approached by authorities.

Though a spokesman for the New Rochelle police department has called the video misleading and are hinting that 9-1-1 transcripts will paint a different picture of the event, this is definitely atrocious timing with the world watching the way we treat unarmed Black citizens.  We are still reeling from the deaths of Tamir Rice, Eric Garner, Michael Brown and the list goes on…

JET will keep an eye on this story…  The video below is NSFW.
