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.”

The FDA repeatedly stood up to Trump on coronavirus — and even won some victories: NYT
President Donald J. Trump has repeatedly tried to undermine the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (F.D.A.) and now, with just two weeks until Election Day, the world is learning more about the behind-the-scenes battles that have shaken these governmental entities to the core.
Approximately two weeks after Trump's release from Walter Reed Medical Center, there is no "cure," as the president stated, and he is not "immune." No one is immune - and there is no successful vaccine, regardless of how much Trump claims one will arrive before Nov. 3. The F.D.A. published the guidelines in briefing materials to an advisory committee that will discuss them on Thursday, effectively making them official. To be clear, the F.D.A.has not approved Trump's miraculous cure of a cocktail - even though he has claimed differently.
America is on pace for record-shattering early voter turnout — including in critical states: report
On Tuesday, The Washington Post reported that voters are casting early ballots in numbers on track to set a historic record — including in some critical battleground states.
"Early-voting counts suggest a record level of civic participation before Election Day. The tens of millions of ballots already cast show highly enthusiastic voters are making sure their votes are counted amid a pandemic," said the report.
15.8 million people in battleground states have already voted, and in some states, like Michigan and Wisconsin, more people have voted early so far than did in the entire early voting period of 2016. In North Carolina, meanwhile, 2 million ballots have been cast — more than double the same amount at this point in 2016.
