NYPD Cops Pounce and Pile on Top of Man for Tossing Cigarette

A group of cops ganging up on a man standing outside a store for apparently tossing a cigarette butt on the sidewalk, pouncing on him, then piling on him with their body weights while ordering him to place his hands behind his back.

Cigarettes. NYPD. Sidewalks.

What could possibly go wrong?

Fortunately, this man did not get choked to death but if it takes almost ten cops to arrest a man littering a Brooklyn sidewalk, then it’s clear that the NYPD refusal to arrest people for minor crimes as a way to protest against the mayor is officially over.

It is not clear when the incident took place but it was uploaded Tuesday to the Facebook page of E[__l Grito De Sunset Park,__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/video.php?v=732641380177146) a community activist page from New York City.

The page states the man was arrested for tossing the cigarette, but one commenter named Edgardo Gonzalez claimed the suspect flicked the cigarette butt at the officer.

However, the video doesn’t show that at all.

In fact, the video doesn’t ever show him holding a cigarette.

He is just talking on the phone as the cops gather around him, trying to stare him down before eventually moving in on him after two minutes, so he probably refused to pick it up, turning into a contempt of cop arrest.

The NYPD is obviously making up for the [__revenue they failed__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/the-nypds-work-stoppage-is-costing-the-city-lots-of-money-thats-great-for-new-yorkers) to generate for the city during their protest against Mayor Bill de Blasio, whom they blamed for encouraging a psychopathic man to drive up from Baltimore last month and kill two of their fellow officers.

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.
