NYPD proving to be out of control



Another video has emerged showing an overly aggressive New York City cop brutalizing a citizen.

This time, it is officer Maurice Harrington repeatedly bashing the legs of a suspect as another cop tries to handcuff him.

The suspect, 46-year-old Michael Cephus, can be heard yelling out in pain as witnesses protest the beating.

According to the New York Post, the two men who filmed the incident were arrested for disorderly conduct, but were able to slip the tape to one of Cephus’ friends before the arrest.

Cephus, a truck driver, claims the officers attacked him for no reason.

“I was with some friends at a cookout,” he said. “I stepped out of the park to get some ice. The officers told me I couldn’t return because they said I had alcohol. I told them it was only ice.

“They thought I was drunk and they just came at me. They started swinging and hitting me with the batons.”

It was only a day earlier where another video emerged showing officer Patrick Pogan body slamming a cyclist off his bike and arresting him before charging his with assault on a police officer.

If these videos are not enough to wake up the average American into realizing that many officers are not the brave heroes they claim to be, but rather chickenshit bullies, then maybe this video would. Or this video. Or this video. Or this video.

These videos infuriate me because it reminds me of my arrest when the cops repeatedly bashed my head into the pavement even though they had already handcuffed me.

I wonder how my arresting officers would have acted if they were off-duty and alone without their guns.

I would love to find out.

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.
