- Two Philadelphia police officers stop two men on a city street

(CNN) -- A recent cell phone video of two Philadelphia police officers during a stop-and-frisk has caught the attention of online viewers and the American Civil Liberties Union -- and the police department itself, which says it its investigating.
The over-16-minute long YouTube video dated September 27 depicts two male Philadelphia police officers confronting two unidentified pedestrians, one of whom recorded the incident on his cell phone.
It is unclear who posted the video online, but police have not challenged its authenticity.
Despite the lengthy and often caustic questioning of the men, they are allowed to walk away by the officers.
The video begins with a police vehicle slowing down as one officer is heard saying, "Yo, my man," before the vehicle comes to a complete stop. "How you doing sir?" one of the pedestrians replies, as the officer in the passenger seat of the vehicle opens his car door and steps out on to the street.
After inquiring whether the pedestrians have identification or live in the area, the second officer exits the vehicle and joins them on the sidewalk.
One pedestrian asks, "What seems to be the problem?" as the other says he is on his way to work.
