One of several interesting and misguided elements around this event is that police say "No one was arrested." Journalists seem to be clueless about what that means. In the video clip you can see a person in custody with handcuffs on. Police have a habit of saying to suspects "I am not arresting you." as they place handcuffs on the suspect and place them into their locked patrol cars. Unfortunately in law arrest means to stop. If a person is not free to go he is arrested. When police order a person to stop that is an arrest. What the police are trying to say is that they did not file formal charges against anyone. That can be seen regularly on the FOX TV Show COPS. Arrest is from the French language meaning to stop.
Here's an example of police arresting a person without charging her with a crime. She is suing the NYPD for false arrest.

What is more problematic is the pervasive denial of police and journalists about racially motivated violence. As Flaherty points out in his book, it is a growing problem across the entire country. Just like the equally pervasive media censorship about many issues. It enables deceptive politicians to mislead voters and taxpayers allowing more and more theft of taxpayer funds.
