The Jewish security guard who called police an asked them to remove a naked man from the Aliyah Center in Crown Heights was threatened by that man, Ehud HaLevi, shortly before police were called. The guard says HaLevi also threatened police and made racial remarks about them. And he also says that since the incident became public he has received numerous threats – presumably from Chabad followers.

As you watch the first video posted below note that ABC cuts out the beginning part of the confrontation (among other things), and leaves out other facts (that HaLevi was "naked" and confrontational when the center's Jewish security guard called 911, for example, as the second video, an interview with that security guard, reports) that make police look worse than they were.
ABC also falsely describes the male officer's shift into a boxing stance and otherwise does a horrible job with the basic reporting.
On the other hand, ABC finally got the head of the PBA to make a statement. And that statement supports the cops:
