PHILADELPHIA, PA — Two men walking down the sidewalk in Philadelphia got the police state treatment when they were stopped by a pair of aggressive police officers, shoved against a police car, searched without probable cause, and verbally harassed and threatened. This event was only remarkable because one of the men had the foresight to record it. These tactics are regularly employed against innocent pedestrians in Philly and other big cities.
