PA Cop Snatches Camera from Man, Claiming it is Illegal to Record

A Pennsylvania cop snatched a camera from a man’s hands after accusing him of felony wiretapping, even though they were inside a restaurant where the cop had no expectation of privacy.

A Butler police officer named Walters then turned the camera off, handed it back to its owner and ordered him outside where he then gave him a citation for criminal mischief.

The man with the camera, who goes by Muchmusic16001 on Youtube, said he was inside Mickey’s Original Pizza and Hoagies in Butler because he used to work there but still hadn’t been paid, even though it was more than three weeks since he left.

Cops were called and it didn’t seem as if they cared whether he was paid or not.

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.
