Brevard Detective Brian Stoll Reprimanded by Internal Affairs

Brevard County Sheriff’s Detective Brian Stoll was [__reprimanded by internal affairs__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/Brian-Stoll.pdf) for his arrogant and unprofessional behavior in arresting *PINAC* editor Jeff Gray, including the condescending attitude he displayed toward’s Gray’s wife, which was being recorded unknowing to him.

It just goes to show you the importance of recording every interaction with police, especially when you take a look at Stoll’s bulky internal affairs file and realize that most of the complaints against him were determined to be unfounded.

However, the internal affairs sergeant based most of his investigation on the video that was posted on *Photography is Not a Crime* in the wake of [__Gray’s arrest__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2013/10/23/jeff-gray-arrested-recording-cops-days-becoming-pinac-partner/) October 23, determining that Stoll was guilty of violating three departmental policies.

Not only was Stoll rude to Gray’s wife, he was sloppy in his investigation and in filing his report, the internal affairs sergeant stated.

But the sergeant was being generous because it is clear from the report that Stoll not only coerced a business owner to order him off the parking lot, but arrested Gray for trespassing after he had stepped off the property.

It is also clear that he broke Gray’s iPhone by smacking it out of his hand, even though he claims it could have been damaged before he smacked it – despite the fact that [__we posted video__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2013/11/05/brevard-deputies-claim-photography-crime-arresting-pinac-editor/) from the iPhone in the days after his arrest.

Gray still hasn’t been compensated for the phone, even though [__charges against him were dismissed.__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2013/12/18/brevard-county-prosecutor-tries-justify-jeff-grays-arrest-dropping-charges/)

The report redacts Stoll’s name because he is an undercover officer for the Game Over Task Force, but thanks to sources from within the department, we had his name within days after his arrest.

I’ve created a [__Dropbox folder__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/CRh5LANQRl) with the rest of his internal affairs documents, which were obtained by *PINAC* public records specialist Thomas Covenant. I haven’t had a chance to go through everything, so maybe you guys will find something newsworthy.

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.
