Charges dropped against Texas reporter



It took more than three months, but authorities in Texas determined they didn’t have enough evidence to prosecute a TV reporter named Victor Castillo for failing to identify himself as he was trying film police conducting a drug bust.

The arrest was captured by another TV videographer from another station who was also harassed moment before.

Castillo was standing there with a tripod, camera and microphone dangling from his pocket, looking like an obvious TV reporter.

Check out the video here.

The incident occurred in mid-March near the border of Mexico after police and Border Patrol Agents chased a car filled with bales of marijuana. Apparently there was some type of accident, which resulted in the actual bust.

Both of the videographers were nowhere near the actual bust where they would be interfering with any investigation.

It is moments like this that make one wonder what is it the officers are trying to hide. The average viewer would probably think they are just doing the job.

But by chasing away the videographers, it gives the impression that they were trying to hide something.

And considering corruption along the border runs rampant, I wouldn’t be surprised.

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.
