Mitt Romney swung into St. Augustine Monday, so PINAC reader Jeff Gray aka HONORYOUROATH decided to shoot some video.
Anybody who is familiar with his videos can imagine what took place next.
It started when a security guard ordered him to leave the area, even though he was standing on a sidewalk outside a police perimeter.
The guard called a St. Augustine cop, who naturally sided with the security guard, even though he could not specify exactly what law Gray was breaking.
“Secret Service doesn’t want anybody standing around this area,” the cop said.
“Just because the Secret Service comes to town doesn’t mean my rights don’t exist,” Gray responded, adding that he was audio and video recording.
“I know, you always do,” the officer responded.
“You know who I am?”
Another officer arrived and Gray asked if he legally has to move.
“You’re fine,” the second officer responded.
By the end of the video, several citizens had converged on the scene, some even taking photos with cops, who smiled and posed.
But that was after Romney had left town in his “Believe in America” caravan.

CARLOS MILLER’S LEGAL DEFENSE FUND
I am immersed in a legal case where I not only want to clear my criminal charges stemming from my arrest in January, but I want to sue the Miami-Dade Police Department for deleting my footage, which I was able to recover.
My goal is to set some type of precedent to ensure this does not happen as often as it does today where cops simply get away with it.

Also, in an unrelated PINAC matter, I recently went through a hair transplant operation and I’m documenting my recovery on this blog if you are interested. I did not pay for this transplant, which is why I’m promoting the doctor through the hair transplant blog.
