NYPD cops disagree about force to use on guy

This video has been going around the internet today of two NYPD police officers arresting a guy and they almost come to blows on each other about the force to use.

The video starts with the guy already in handcuffs on the ground yelling as one officer is roughing him up and the other officer is trying to get his partner to calm down or take it easy on the already handcuffed guy. The two cops have a little disagreement and push each other. Then the officer who was roughing up the guy before tries to get the guy over to the cruiser as the guy yells about his hurt hand. The officer slams the guy against a parked vehicle. Then the guy drops the ground and starts crying. The officers then get physical with each other again, pushing each other back but that's as far as it went. The peaceful officer later comes over to the person recording the video and the video ends.

Of course we don't know what happened before the video started so I don't know if the guy tried to attack the officers or not, but that one cop is definitely using excessive force. I'm sure more info will come out about this incident, so stay tuned.
