Vic shared this video this morning on Twitter and I just got around to watching it fully. First of all…WTF. Why does one 60-year-old Chinese man require more than one middle-aged, heavy-set NYPD police officer to take him down? Also, what is with the NYPD man-in-charge swinging out his baton as if ready to beat some people? Is that really necessary?

UPDATE: Gothamist has some background info (not a whole lot though) and apparently somebody nearby had complained about noise disturbance due to a small group of old folks gathering to play music.
