New York State Trooper Media Spokesman Said he is Not Same Trooper

New York State Trooper Jack Keller said he is not the same Trooper Keller that handcuffed a man [__last week__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2013/04/29/ny-state-trooper-and-possible-media-spokesman-handcuffs-man-for-video-recording-him/) for video recording him during a protest.

Jack Keller, who is a public information officer, contacted me today wishing to clear his name, telling me he had received a multitude of phone calls from irate *PINAC* readers.

“People were telling me they wished I had cancer,” he said. “It was shocking to see the people calling me.”

Keller also said he used to be a television news photographer before he became a police officer, so he fully supports the right to record in public.

He also said he did not know the name of the trooper in the above video.

“I work in Troop D, which is in central New York,” he said.

The trooper in the video apparently works in Troop F, which is in southern New York, as you can see on the map below

Obviously, he could have obtained the trooper’s name, especially considering he is a public information officer, but I’ll let him slide because of the turmoil I put him through this week.

I apologized to him and said I would make a correction.

I wasn’t 100 percent they were the same people, which is why I put it out there as a question, but I did see a resemblance between the two men.

But as Keller said, it’s not that hard to find similarities between two troopers when both are wearing sunglasses and hats.

The trooper who detained the videographer is in the top photo. Jack Keller is in the bottom photo. My bad.

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.
