Indiana Cop Claims “City Property” Different Than Public Property

An Indiana cop was under the impression that “city property” was different than public property, giving him the authority to demand identification from a man video recording him from across the street.

The man reluctantly complied to avoid arrest. The interaction begins at 1:30 in the video.

The Kokomo police officer, a fresh-faced punk who had no business being a cop, ended up running a warrant search on the man, whose name is Alan Bowen.

The cop then told Bowen that he had the right to trespass him without a valid reason because they happened to standing in the  [__okomo Housing Authority__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/www.kokomoha.org) neighborhood, which is a government-funded housing project for low-income people.

 “My concern is you’re over here filming,” the cop said. “I don’t know who you are or what relation you have to the crimes going on.”

The cop then said he would not trespass Bowen because his girlfriend lived in the neighborhood.

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.
