RPI student brutally beaten by Troy, New York Police Officers

By Carlos Miller -
A college student who was videotaping the aftermath of an altercation between another student and a police officer was arrested on questionable charges.

Nicholas Nigro, a student at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in upstate New York, was charged with disorderly conduct and having an open container. He denied having an open container, according to the Times Union.

And it is not clear what constituted disorderly conduct because while the above video is not very clear, it is obvious that Nigro was not interfering nor yelling nor doing anything other than describing the incident that had just taken place between the officer and the studenet.

“His face is all bloodied up. When I came out they were hitting him with nightsticks,” Nigro narrates into the camera.

Seconds later, an officer storms up to him and orders him to get back inside
