WATCH: Cop sans Mask Rips Face Mask off Man Complying with City Mask Mandate

A control freak of a cop in Nashville named Harvey Briggs stormed up to a man recording a traffic stop from a public sidewalk Monday and threatened to arrest him for impeding before ripping the face mask off his face.

Moments earlier, the Tennessee state trooper – who was not wearing a mask – had yelled at the man for recording but the man responded by saying, “I’m filming and I’m on a fucking sidewalk.”

That prompted Briggs to storm up to him from what appears to be a guard shack about 40 feet away with his hand on his gun.

“When you address me, you use less colorful language,” Briggs said. “I don’t appreciate that.”

“I don’t appreciate what you all do,” responded by Andrew Golden who is described as a protester in the local news article about the incident.

Briggs went on to accuse Golden of “impeding” the traffic stop he was recording but Golden was standing more than 20 feet away and was not saying anything in that direction.

“Why is your hand on your gun?” Golden asks.

“Because that’s the way it always is,” Briggs responds, placing his face inches away from Golden’s face, hoping to provoke a physical response.

“You’re not wearing a mask and you’re right up in my face,” Golden says as Briggs continues to accuse him of impeding when he is the only person doing the impeding.

Briggs then rips the mask off Golden’s face and tosses it on the ground before storming off.

“You just ripped the fucking mask off my face,” Golden yells. “What the fuck!”

“What’d I tell you about the language,” Briggs threatens before denying ripping the mask off.

Golden filed a complaint and the department responded by saying they are “reviewing the matter.”

Meanwhile, cops in Nashville have been issuing citations and warnings to people not wearings masks in defiance of a city mandate which is considered a misdemeanor under state law, according to WSMV.

Last week, a Nashville city council woman suggested attempted murder charges should be filed against people not wearing masks so perhaps we can start with Briggs.

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.
