Suffolk County Police Gets Recorded While Abuses Family, Arrest Man For Recording
Just a little more than a year after the Suffolk County Police Department paid a $200,000 settlement to a photojournalist they arrested for video recording in public, another man is claiming they did the same to him, even going as far as to attempt to delete his footage.
But they ended up deleting the wrong footage, claims Thomas Demint.
However, he remained quiet about the incident for more than a year, during which he says he has been pulled over and harassed regularly by police to intimidate him for recording the chaotic scene that shows cops tasering an 80-pound woman.
But the 20-year-old man finally went public with the video Wednesday in preparation for his trial next month on charges of obstructing government administration and resisting arrest.
