NYPD reviewing video of officers appearing to follow teens

Recently released video of two officers appearing to follow teens along a Brooklyn street is raising questions about the officers' conduct.



In the video shot on March 16 near Midwood High School, an officer can be heard asking the students, "Do you want to ride the lighting?" in reference to the stun gun he was holding.



The video shows the other officer pulling out his baton.



The Brooklyn College professor who shot the video told the Daily News that the actions of the officers seemed to be unwarranted.



The NYPD responded by saying, "We are aware of the video and the incident is under internal review."
