Ryan French, a freelance news videographer in Tampa, was shooting video at a crime scene when he was confronted by a resident who nominated himself Protector of the Neighborhood.

The scrawny, shirtess man insisted on standing in front of French’s camera, stating that he was protecing his Pinellas Park neighborhood – or his “hood” as he calls it – from bad publicity.

The idiot even tried to get the cops to back him up in his efforts but they told him to scram.

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.

Hair Transplant 

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.
