I Settled My Case 0

By Carlos Miller

In January 2013, I entered the Miami-Dade Metrorail with a friend visiting from out of town when we decided to take photos from a platform as we waited for a train to take us home, knowing we were completely within our rights to do so.

But a security guard from 50 State, the company contracted by Miami-Dade County to provide security services for the trains and courthouses, approached me and informed me that I was not allowed to take photos of the tracks, something we were not doing, but something that is not illegal, especially considering Miami-Dade Transit has pictures of the tracks posted on its website.

I asserted my right to take photos and before I knew it, I was being dragged down the escalator in a chokehold in what was one of the most traumatizing experiences of my life (video below).

Iowa Cop Accidentally Discharges Gun after Pursuing Man Experiencing Medical Condition 40

By Carlos Miller

Police in Iowa chased a man in a car, forcing him to stop, then busting out his windows – and even discharging their gun – after they spotted him in the driver’s seat with a “faraway stare.”

It turns out, the man was having a medical episode, possibly related to diabetes, but that made no difference to the cops because they are only trained to hurt, not help.

The incident was captured on a police dash cam. The discharge of the gun was accidental, the bullet going through the passenger’s door. Luckily, nobody was injured.

Pennsylvania Cops Single Out Man with Camera, Ordering him Away from Police Abuse Incident 42

By Carlos Miller

Police in Pennsylvania singled out a man video recording them after they body slammed a drunk man to the sidewalk, ordering him to walk away, accusing him of impeding the sidewalk, while not batting an eye for countless other people walking through their scene.

If anybody was impeding the sidewalk, it was the Harrisburg Police Department, who not only body slammed the man to the sidewalk, but then crowded around his motionless, handcuffed body waiting for paramedics to tend to his wounds.

The cops then impeded on the man’s right to record the scene by forcing him to walk away.

Texas Cops Attack Man Photographing Building, Claiming he was Man Fleeing from them 214

By Carlos Miller

A San Antonio man taking photos of his wife’s soon-to-be medical practice was attacked by a plainclothes cop who roared up in a pickup and hopped out, ordering him to get down, striking him in the face with what appeared to be a handheld radio before he could even comply.

Two uniformed SWAT team members quickly joined in, striking Roger Carlos in the head about 50 times with fists and elbows before handcuffing him. satisfied that they had their man.

Except the real man were looking was someone else whom they had chased for miles down a freeway at 80 mph before he pulled into a parking lot, ditched his car and ran.

DEA Agents Fail at Intimidating Man Recording Federal Building 183

By Carlos Miller

Less than a month after PINAC crew members were harassed, threatened and one even battered for video recording outside a Drug Enforcement Administration building in Florida, another man decided to do the same to a DEA building in Texas Thursday, receiving almost the same reaction.

Brett Sanders was not breaking the law as a 2010 settlement with Homeland Security determined that it is legal to photograph federal buildings.

But as we’ve seen, that has made absolutely no difference to the security guards outside the buildings, not to mention the federal agents inside the building.
