WATCH: Cop Grabs Man’s Phone and Tosses it; Man Responds by Knocking Cop Out

Like we’ve seen so many times before over the years, a cop who did not want to be recorded grabbed a man’s phone and tossed it, a clear violation of the man’s Constitutional right to record but one that rarely goes enforced.

However, this time, the man responded by knocking the cop out before running away.

The San Jose police officer ended up getting dragged away by fellow officers. It does not appear as if they arrested the man who knocked the cop out but there is no doubt cops are going to be on the lookout for him.

The incident took place Friday during a protest demanding justice for George Floyd who was killed by Minneapolis police earlier this week. A video shows a man with his phone walking in front of police officers with his camera as if recording.

The man who was wearing a facial mask and carrying a skateboard moved from one cop to the other when the second cop grabbed his phone and tossed it aside. The man responded by slapping him down.

Unfortunately, the moment the man’s hand made contact with the cop’s face did not get recorded because the person recording had panned the phone towards where the phone had been tossed. But it shows the cop going down as the man runs away. Another video shows the cops tending to him while he remains knocked out before they drag him away to safety.

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.
