Racial Profiling Experiment- HOAX


The video of a NYPD officer appearing to racially profile two Muslim men because they are wearing traditional Islamic clothes has been exposed as a hoax.
 
Shamelessly seeking to exploit recent tensions sparked in New York City by the choking death of Eric Garner in July, the video was created by two filmmakers hoping to create and profit from viral content on YouTube.
 
Brooklyn residents Adam Saleh and Sheikh Akbar, who produce shareable content under the name 'TrueStoryASA' released the video entitled, 'Racial Profiling Experiment' over the weekend - duping many media outlets around the world.
Not cool guys!

  1. Police brutality is at an all time high these days in the States what with a new video popping out every day showing truly graphic scenes like an officer beating an elderly mentally disabled black woman or another officer chocking a 7th grader (also black) somewhere in North Carolina but what these two douchebags did is absolutely disgusting. They ought to be brought to justice on defamation charges and whatnot. Fuckin A, bro. Not cool.
