A man who attended the Eric Garner protests in Boston last night has posted a video to YouTube showing him being pepper-sprayed by a State Police officer.

Kin Moy, the videographer who was sprayed, writes:

I was filming some arrests that were unnecessarily forceful and aggressive, and I tried to catch when an officer threatened to run us over with his motorcycle. Unfortunately, that footage was lost but one of the cops was pissed that I was filming so he threatened to spray me. I blocked the first shot with my phone, but that second shot got me clean. Ouch!
