Texas Homeland Security Cop Almost Attacks PINAC Correspondent

A Homeland Security police officer tried his best to escalate a confrontation with a PINAC correspondent who was conducting a First Amendment audit on a federal building in Houston Monday.

David Warden was standing outside the building with his camera while standing on public property, not saying a word, when two Federal Protective Services officers stepped into the gated parking lot.

“Take your camera off me, please,” the officer said. “You’re violating ….”

But then he must have thought better than to make up a law as they tend to do.

However, he then came rushing out of the parking lot, getting within 12 inches of Warden’s face.

“What is the nature of your business around here taking video?” he asked.

“Would you not walk up on me so close,” Warden asked.

“I just want to talk to you,” the officer replied, his hands lifted towards his face as if he was either trying to hide his face from the camera or getting ready to strike Warden.

Warden asked for the cop’s name. The cop asked for his identification. Neither man obliged.

“Get back from me,” Warden repeated. “I’m telling you step back.”

“What can I do for you?” the cop asked, continuing to invade Warden’s personal space.

“Get the fuck back, that’s what you can do, give me so personal space,” Warden replied.

“I’m just here walking, just like you’re here walking,” the cop responded.

The situation became very tense, especially when the cop started saying, “you better bring me some hands,” which is a sign a cop is about to shoot somebody.

Warden’s hands were in full view, one holding a camera, the other by his side.

Fortunately, a third Homeland Security arrived and deescalated the incident, a fed named Sisler whom Warden met on a previous audit in a video posted below, showing there is a right way to do things and a wrong way to do things.

**UPDATE:** We also posted a third video where Warden gives us an update.

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.
