The video, the video, where is the video?



I am dying to upload the video I shot during the Code Pink demonstration in which I got assaulted by a Cuban exile.

However, I am still trying to acquire a photo taken by Roberto Koltun of El Nuevo Herald, who was about three feet from the incident when it happened.

He told me he got some good shots, but the editors chose to run other photos with the article.

The photo would be like the cherry on top of a sundae for the video. It would come on screen as soon as my video camera gets shut down during the melee.

Because everything he shoots is property of the Miami Herald, I have to go through the Herald’s archives department to acquire licensing rights for the photo. And this has taken several days so far.

They need to know what resolution size photo I will need, where I’m going to run the photo, for what duration of time, for what purpose, etc.

And they still haven’t told me how much this will cost. And they might even end up disapproving my request.

I am almost tempted to upload the video without the photo because the video is strong as it is. But I tend to be nitpicky about these things.

If I upload the video today, then end up getting the photo tomorrow, it will just drive me mad.

So please bear with me.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
