Maryland Cop Pushes and Shoves Videographer,

In a chaotic video out of Maryland, a horde of cops were struggling to arrest two suspects in the middle of a road for unknown reasons when an officer storms up to the videographer standing on the side of the road and tells him, “get out of my face.”

The videographer asserts his rights to record, so a police sergeant then storms up to him and starts shoving him, telling him to “get the hell out of here” and “leave” and accusing him of “diverting my attention” from piling on the two suspects who were not resisting – even though there were countless other people standing around watching, none of them, however, holding a camera.

The videographer starts walking away, but keeps pointing out that he had not broken any law, which prompts the sergeant to storm up to him again and say the following:

“Look at me, do you see the police presence here? Do you see us all. We’re not fucking around, do you understand? Do not, do not disrespect us. Do not, not listen to us. Walk away and shut your fucking mouth or you’re going to jail. Do you understand.”

The sergeant walks away and the videographer asks if he had committed a crime, prompting the sergeant to walk back to him, grab him arm and twist it behind his back.

“Don’t open your mouth,” the cop barks.
“I thought I had freedom of speech,” the videographer responds.
“You don’t, you just lost it,” the cop says.

Call the following number to remind the sergeant that, yes, we do have freedom of speech, and it includes the right to petition the government for redress of grievances – especially when he can clearly see he singled out a single citizen from a crowd, solely on the basis that he was recording police activity in public.

UPDATE: At first, it was believed the sergeant from the Towson University Police Department, but now it appears as if he is from the Baltimore County Police Department, which can be reached at (410) 887-2361.

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.

Please make a donation below or click on side tab to learn more about our mission.
