The news is out: [A North Texas man is suing two police officers who arrested and pepper-sprayed him while he was recording the arrest of his son. Marco Puente came upon his 22-year-old son Dylan being handcuffed by officers in the Riverdance neighborhood of Keller, TX on Aug. 15.
Marco Puente repeatedly asked the officers why his son was being arrested. They threatened him with arrest for obstructing the street with his truck. He moved his truck into a nearby driveway and then continued to ask questions and record the incident on his phone. Eventually, the officers handcuffed Marco Puente and pepper-sprayed him as he continued to ask the officers what they were doing.
The officers sprayed Puente in the face, removed his sunglasses and sprayed him again. Further videos reveal that the officers refused to help a screaming Puente. His eyes weren’t washed until after he was brought to the local jail and left in the car for over 10 minutes.]
Every day, these clowns, masquerading as cops, are violating the Constitutional rights of the people. It is legal to videotape public servants.
