San Diego Officer Assaults, Arrests Man Filming His Interaction With Police

San Diego Officer Assaults, Arrests Man Filming His Interaction With Police

Despite Federal court rulings to the contrary, local LEOs (legally entitled to oppress) continue to assault and falsely arrest people who attempt to record their interactions with police.

It happened again Saturday in San Diego after two officers stopped and cited three men for smoking as they walked down the boardwalk. A few minutes after their interaction began and while writing the citation, Officer M. Reinhold tells Adam Pringle to put away his cellphone.

Pringle correctly informs Reinhold that he is within his rights to film, as they are in a public place. The officer disagrees. After a back and forth discussion in which Reinhold claims cellphones can be converted into weapons (and the information can be found online), Reinhold slaps the phone out of Pringle’s hand and throws him to the ground.

During the assault, Pringle received a cut on his chin. He was transported to the hospital for treatment. He then was charged with obstruction of justice and jailed overnight.

In a conversation with Pringle’s friends after the incident, the officer continued to maintain that he was concerned with his safety and that officer safety trumps the 4th Amendment. The good people at found some evidence of how cellphones can be converted into weapons and posted that information here.

I will be purchasing the Blackberry Uzi as soon as I pass my background check.
