Canadian Police Arrest Man for Photographing Cop Car

A Canadian man receiving a parking citation in downtown Montreal decided to step out of his car and take a picture of the police car.

He ended up getting beat up, handcuffed and arrested.

All while his 17-year-old daughter video recorded the incident.

Now the video is going viral, a disturbing scene of a man screaming in pain as his daughter pleas for his safety, another chilling chapter in the War on Cameras.

According to the [__Huffington Post:__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/dirk-boder_n_4325315.html)

> Boder told Huffington Post Quebec he made a brief stop in downtown Montreal earlier this month, parking at Peel St. and de Maisonneuve Blvd. so his daughter could run into a store.
> When she returned, a police officer approached the car, issuing an $88 ticket for illegal parking. At that point, Boder stepped out of his car to snap a picture of the police vehicle.
> And then things took a dramatic turn.
> Boder claims the officer started screaming at him, asking “You do not have enough trouble?”
> “That hurts,” Boder yells in the clip, as he’s pressed up against a wall by a pair of burly officers.
> His daughter begs, “Let go of my dad!”

Dirk Boder was released an hour later with citations for illegal parking and obstructing traffic.

> After watching the video, Sgt. Laurent Gingras of the SPVM admits it doesn’t look good. But he also insists it doesn’t show the full picture since the public doesn’t see what happens before and after the intervention.
> “He was obstructing traffic. That’s why they came to him, not because he was taking pictures,” said Gingras.
> Boder is most upset about the fact that police took off with him, leaving his daughter stranded on the street in the dark. She even tried to call 9-1-1 to find out where her father was taken, but says they hung up on her twice.
> Police eventually brought him back to the scene to meet up with his daughter close to an hour later. The carpenter was forced to take a few days off work, after suffering minor injuries to his hands. He feels humiliated about the incident and says his daughter has been crying constantly ever since.

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.
