MA Cops Handcuff Man, Force him to sit in Sweltering Cop Car for Hour,

A Massachusetts state police officer ordered a man out of his car over a tinted window violation, aggressively handcuffing him when the man would not put his camera phone down, forcing him to remain seated and handcuffed in the back seat of a cruiser with the windows up and the air-conditioner off for an hour.

All because the cop wanted to teach him a lesson for “questioning my authority.”

The incident took place this week in Revere,  just outside of Boston, which explains the mob-like tactics of police. That’s just how it’s done up there.

Destefano posted [__two videos on Youtube__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/UCdGCAPtY0RK6-Ac7mIFln5Q), explaining in the comments that he was released with only a citation for illegal tints after he was forced to sit in a sweltering cop car for an hour.

It all started when Anthony Destefano was pulled over and ordered to provide his license and registration with him insisting on knowing why he had been stopped before handing over his information.

They went back and forth a bit before Destefano provided these items and the cop informed that he had been pulled over for tinted windows.

The cop walked back to his car with his information before walking back a few minutes and ordering him out of the car while opening his car door  – as if he had just discovered a warrant for Destefano’s arrest.

But there was no warrant. There was no probable cause. And there was no reasonable suspicion that he had done anything more but buy a car with illegal tints.

It was all because, as he can be heard saying in the video, “you treated me with zero respect.”

But respect must be earned.

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.
