A pair of NYPD cops simply wanted to disperse a crowd gathered on a hot July night at a Bronx street corner. But as a disturbing video shows, the officers suddenly found themselves surrounded by angry, taunting bystanders. As the crowd cheered, a man the cops were trying to arrest put one of the officers in a headlock — a controversial tactic that has drawn condemnation when used by police, and is about to be prohibited in New York City.
