How My Video Got 6 Cops Indicted | I Was There

Almost two decades before cell phone video cameras came into widespread use, the violent actions of N.Y.P.D. officers during the Tompkins Square Park riot in 1988 were caught on a hand-held video camera by local Lower East Side resident and artist Clayton Patterson (@claytonles). In this episode of I Was There, Clayton recounts the wild and free era of the L.E.S. in the 80s and the events that led up to the riot and its aftermath, which included the indictment of several police officers and a jail sentence for Clayton for refusing to turn over his footage to authorities. 

Featuring Excerpts From the Film “CAPTURED” (2008) provided by Clayton Patterson, Elsa Rensaa, Daniel B. Levin, and Ben Solomon. www.capturedmovie.com
