South Carolina Deputy Pulls Gun on Man Recording Him

Fearing for his life, a South Carolina sheriff’s deputy pulled a gun on a man who walked up to him with a phone while recording, asking him for his name and badge number.

The man with the camera, who goes by Trey Citizen on YouTube, had both hands on his phone, which is evident in the reflection of the window.

He also had the sense to hold the phone horizontally, so he obviously put some thought into this.

But the deputy, no doubt on edge after recent police slayings, pulled out his gun and pointed it at him.

“Back away form my car,” the deputy said, holding his gun.

“Really, you pulled a gun on me, bro?” Trey Citizen asked. “I got both of my hands in the air.”

But by then, the deputy had started driving off, still fearing for his life.

“Roll your window down,” Trey Citizen said. “I got both hands in the air.

“What’s your name and badge number?”

But the video ends without the deputy ever telling his name and badge number.

Trey Citizen only has six videos on his [__YouTube channel,__](https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2qwN12fs5FYV4Ik-Rszy9w/videos) which he launched May 31, 2016, mostly consisting of First Amendment audits of local law enforcement agencies.

As of this writing, he has 891 subscribers and 100,406 views, which is sure to skyrocket after this video.

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.
