NYPD Cop Threatens to Arrest Man with Camera for Standing on Street

As hundreds of protesters marched down the street in an anti-police brutality protest in New York City, a group of NYPD cops walking among them turned to a man recording them from the side, threatening to arrest him if he did not get back on the sidewalk.

The cops were from the department’s Technical Assistance Response Unit, whose job is to video record protesters, so one of the officers was even carrying a camera as he threatened the man with arrest.

The man was shooting video for the Youtube channel, Copwatch Patrol Unit, so he stepped on the sidewalk and continued recording.

The two men exchanged heated words as protesters chanted, “whose streets, our streets” as they marched down the street in the background.

“Don’t get off that sidewalk or I’m going to arrest you, you hear me?” a cop named Kilcoyne threatened.
“Do what you gotta do,” the man with the camera responded.

An NYPD captain intervened and ordered the man to keep moving. The video was uploaded December 25.

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.
