South Florida Cop Acts so Thuggish, his own Partner wants Nothing to do with him

The Palm Beach County sheriff’s deputy was a hero in his own movie, the way he swaggered up to a young black man and demanded his identification, even though the man was under no legal obligation to provide it.

“Listen, I’m not here to play around,” said the deputy wearing a Thin Blue Line flag on his uniform with another blue line covering his badge number.

“You can record me all you want, that’s fine, I’m not here to play around.”

When the man says he has no identification and attempts to walk away, the deputy grabs him and horse collars him, shoving him backwards hard.

That led to another black man, possibly the victim’s brother, to stand between the two and pull the man away. The two black men make their way inside a home with the deputy following.

The young man with the camera then walks up to the other deputy, who was much more laidback than his partner.

“Is this not harassment?” the person recording asks the second cop.

“I apologized, did I not, don’t yell at me,” the deputy says.

“This is harassment, he can’t ask me for identification, I don’t have to show him identification,” the person with the camera says.

“Ok, you don’t have to explain it to me, I understand, buddy,” the cop says.

Meanwhile, his partner was turning on all the machismo courage he could muster as he tried to justify his actions against the young man, claiming the man had walked up behind him, making him fear for his life when the video shows the man was walking away from him.

And unlike the first cop, he truly believed he had the authority to demand people’s identification without having a reasonable suspicion they were involved in a crime.

He also believed he did not have to provide his name and badge number but that is generally a departmental policy.

“I’m not giving you shit,” he says when asked.

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.
