IL State Cop Loses Temper on Camera as Man Exercises Const. Right

A man driving through an Illinois checkpoint attempted to exercise his Constitutional rights to question officers on whether he was being detained or free to go.

The first Illinois State Police officer remained calm, especially considering the driver had informed him he was being recorded from the get-go.

But a second officer who walked up to the car after the initial exchange, only to hear the man telling the cop that it was an unconstitutional stop, became so enraged that he yanked the door open and began yelling in his face.

The driver, identified as Ryan Scott by the [__Free Though Project__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/wait-it-wait-it-belligerent-cop-loses-man-knowing-rights), and Ryan Taylor on his Youtube channel, opted not to pursue the Constitutional debate with the second officer, realizing it would have likely landed him in jail after a beat-down.

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.
