In video uploaded to WorldStar Hip Hop, a Boston police officer is seen harassing a black man just walking down the street, peppering him with questions about whether he has a job before sarcastically mocking him as a “contributor” to society.
In the video, the unidentified black man claims he had just exited his Uber on the way to get his haircut and noticed two plainclothes Boston police officers watching him from their vehicle, causing him to get his phone out to record the encounter.
What followed was one officer wearing a Boston Bruins knit cap, demanding the man give him his name, saying, “We’re look like some we want to speak to. You’re not Kevin?”
After refusing to give his name, the man is flanked by both officers after they leave the vehicle, told to stay and answer questions including where he lives and what he is doing walking down the street.
“Why are you bothering me?” the man asks the officer who proceeds to take out his cellphone and take his picture, smirking, “Your parents proud of you for flipping off the police?”
As the man tries to walk away, the officer in the knit cap, sarcastically adds, “Have a great day, contributor. What are you doing for work, anything?”
Tired of being questioned, the man confronts the officer and is dismissed with, “Go away. Go away, tough guy.”

Trump’s damage to the federal government is driving voters to turn to more liberal candidates: report
According to a report from Politico, Donald Trump's tenure has not resulted in voters becoming more conservative, and instead, he is driving them into the arms of more liberal and progressive candidates at the local level who are then using their newfound power to change Democratic policies at the national level.
Trump's negative influence is turning into a positive for those candidates -- particularly in the big cities.
"From New York City to Los Angeles, many of the nation’s biggest cities have turned even harder to the left under President Donald Trump, putting pressure on local officials to embrace the leading progressive presidential candidates — or withhold their endorsements entirely for fear of antagonizing newly energized activists," the report states. "It’s a drastic political shift in some places, where for decades entrenched party bosses crushed any signs of life on the left or tended to put the weight of big-city institutional support behind Democratic establishment-oriented candidates."
‘Not true’: Manic GOPer Mark Meadows shut down by CNN’s Bash for repeating lie about Ukraine
A fifteen-minute CNN interview with Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) wound down to an abrupt end on Sunday morning as the "State of the Union" host Dana Bash cut off the Trump defender's insistence there was no quid pro quo offer from the president to Ukraine's leadership, with the CNN host telling the GOP lawmaker, "That's not true. I don't want to debate about it."
In an interview where Meadows continued to rage about former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter, Bash finally brought up Trump's phone call to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky that led to the impeachment inquiry.
Discussing the call where Trump asked for a favor, Meadows pushed back after she said Trump, "Allegedly held up aid and he said it in this phone call."
GOP’s Collins demands delay in impeachment hearing after being overwhelmed with Dem’s massive case against Trump
Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) has demanded that Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) postpone a scheduled House Judiciary Committee hearing slated for Monday after being blindsided by a massive report from the Democrats on the committee making the case for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
According to Newsmax, Collins -- who has become one of the president's main surrogates opposing ouster of the president -- fired back at the Democrats over their Saturday release of thousands of pages of documents to be considered from the House impeachment investigation.
