New Mexico cop arrests videographer as tape rolls



In a clear example of police abuse, an Albuquerque police officer lost his temper and arrested a news videographer after being asked for his name and badge number.

Instead of providing his name and badge number, Officer D. Guzman walked away, only to walk back to the videographer as he was putting his camera back into the news truck.

Guzman then pounced on the videographer, grabbing him from behind as a struggle ensued.

“We’re rolling bud, you hit me,” the photographer said. “It’s all on camera. Quit it, (or you’ll) break a $50,000 camera.”

Guzman has been a cop for 13 months and been on the street for only seven months – apparently not enough time for him to learn not to do anything stupid on camera.

The videographer, who works for KOB-TV, was handcuffed and charged with disobeying a police officer. He was released 90 minutes later.

Albuquerque police refused to comment, but ensured the incident would be reviewed by the Independent Review Office, which will then make recommendations to the police department, according to NBC6.net.

In the meantime, the incident is being reviewed by thousands of online viewers.

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.
