Palestine activist groped by New York police in front of TV cameras

A pro-Palestine activist was groped by a police officer in New York in plain view of TV cameras from Democracy Now. The activist, Julieta Salgado, was arrested at a student protest at the New School university in Manhattan before the assault took place. The so-called values of the New York Police Department - courtesy, professionalism and respect - are ironically juxtaposed at the bottom of the camera frame, while Julieta is being inappropriately touched by an officer at the top of the frame.
