VIDEO: Watch how a Maryland Cop Violate’s a Man’s Constitutional Rights

The Baltimore County cop had seen the young man in court not too long ago, so he approached him and demanded his identification, telling him he needed to check him for warrants.

But John Holt Jr. was doing nothing to raise suspicion that he was committing a crime.

Instead, he was simply walking into a store with his fiancee when the cop stopped him and demanded his identification.

The man’s fiancee began recording and the cop acted as if he was doing nothing wrong. Holt posted the video on his Facebook page stating the officer was a witness in his case, but did not specify anything about his case.

“I think you may have a warrant,” Baltimore County police officer H.R. Persuhn said. “Because I’ve dealt with you before.”

But that is still not grounds to demand a person’s identification in public. You do not permanently lose your Constitutional rights just because a cop has “dealt with you before.”

Holt accused him of harassing him, which the cop denied.

“It’s not harassment, it’s called, I’m doing my job,” Persuhn said.

And when Holt continued complaining, the cop ordered him to lower his voice, accusing him of causing a disturbance.

But the video shows Holt was hardly talking louder than the cop. Had he whispered, the cop would have had issue with that as well.

The cop was doing nothing more than fishing, thinking he had an easy target in Holt.

At one point, Persuhn loses his cools and gets into Holt’s face, telling him to stop talking loudly, but it’s clear he was just angry that Holt did not bow to his authority in seconds.

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.
