PINAC Interviews Miami-Dade Police Union Boss on Camera about his Fear of Body Cams 41

By Carlos Miller

We had attended the Miami-Dade County Commission meeting Thursday night to ask Mayor Carlos Gimenez to sign the PINAC Pledge, which I discuss at the bottom of last week’s article.

But Gimenez informed us through a staff member that he wanted to think it over, which we can expect from any politician asked to sign a pledge that ensures better transparency.

So we ended up getting an interview with John Rivera, president of the Miami-Dade police union, who has been aggressively fighting against the implementation of body cams for officers, even to the point where he claimed the cameras would lead to the death of officers.

Missouri Man Gets Attacked for Video Recording Men Attacking Woman 103

By Carlos Miller

A St. Louis man with balls of steel stood up to a group of men he had video recorded beating up on a woman inside a car who stormed up to him and began threatening, shoving, pushing and punching him, ordering him to turn off the camera, forcing him down the block until the man’s girlfriend pepper sprayed one of the attackers in an intense video that is going viral.

Andrew Doty, a 27-year-old freelance editor, placed the camera inside his pocket in order to defend himself where it goes dark for a portion of the video, but the audio remains clear.

You can hear when his girlfriend pepper sprays one of the men, causing him to scream out in pain, and you can hear Doty saying, “thanks, hon.”

The video goes back on as the men retreat.  Doty called the cops but they didn’t appear too interested in pursuing the matter.

NSA Recruiter Grabs Student’s Phone to Stop him from Recording 75

By Carlos Miller

So a National Security Agency recruiter named “Neal Z.” was manning a booth a University of New Mexico job fair when he was confronted by two students with cameras who began interrogating him about the agency’s spying tactics.

It began with one student accusing the NSA of collecting metadata of all phone calls within the United States, which Neal Z. first denied.
