An apparent case of police brutality in Bahrain – can you provide the details?

A friend on Twitter provided this video to me, however, I cannot locate the original version on YouTube, and I wanted to share it with you.

It appears to show a traffic stop in a Bahraini neighborhood where people are harassed and threatened by riot police.

Do you know what happened here?  When was this, and where?  What is the story?  Can you solve this mystery?

If you know the original YouTube video, please share the link in the comments!

  1. Here’s the original video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjrIUS9oCBA. It was in Samaheej village on 6/17/2012. It was witnessed by @SAIDYOUSIF and @angryarabiya. @angryarabiya provided some details, but she incorrectly identified the officer: https://twitter.com/angryarabiya/status/214378311231606784 https://twitter.com/angryarabiya/status/214378821137342466. @angryarabiya also mentioned that the same officer threatened @SAIDYOUSIF, but incorrectly identified him again: https://twitter.com/angryarabiya/status/214370513290670081 https://twitter.com/angryarabiya/status/214370887531626496. Here, @SAIDYOUSIF explains that the (same) officer who threatened him and assaulted the guy was not the officer that @angryarabiya said: https://twitter.com/SAIDYOUSIF/status/214398180060708864. Later, @SAIDYOUSIF identified the officer as Isa Alsulaiti: https://twitter.com/SAIDYOUSIF/status/214416112052482048.
