NYPD cops caught in lies by security cameras

New York, NY– A video released last week has once again caught the police in a lie. Two NYPD officers were caught assaulting a man for filming an officer who was inappropriately touching his female friend during a stop and frisk.

See the video here.

Jason Disisto and his friends were hanging out on a sidewalk on March 12, 2014, when Officer Jonathan Munoz walked up to Disisto’s female friend, grabbed her wrist, and began to put his hands inside her sweater.  Concerned about what he is seeing, Disisto borrows a cellphone and attempts to begin filming the interaction. This is something that we are all well within our rights- and frankly morally obligated- to do.

Seeing that he is about to film, another officer on the scene, Edwin Flores, confronts Disisto.  The situation escalates very quickly as two officers are seen assaulting the man and attempting to steal his phone.  Disisto is then arrested, as the police claimed that he had lunged at the officers and attempted to punch them with a closed fist.

The blatant lies by the NYPD officers are completely disproved by three security cameras that captured the incident from multiple angles.

After the officers handcuff Disisto and put him in the back of the police vehicle, they throw the cellphone out of the window and break it.  He was charged with obstructing governmental administration, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest.

Criminal charges against Disisto were ultimately dropped, yet no charges seem to have been filed for the officers who assaulted, kidnapped, and destroyed the property of an innocent man.

Unfortunately, it’s more than “just a few bad apples” as the police and their supporters like to claim.

In 2014, the Civilian Complaint Review Board investigated 42 cases of individuals recording the police over the course of just six months, in 27 of the cases, police were accused of reacting inappropriately to the camera presence.

On Tuesday, a civil rights law firm, Rankin and Taylor, filed a lawsuit against Officer Munoz, Officer Edwin Florez, a third unidentified officer, as well as the NYPD on behalf of Disisto.  The firm is also representing six other cases of police misconduct in response to being filmed.

The lawsuit accuses the department of having a “de facto policy” of “making retaliatory arrests against people who lawfully photograph, document or record police activity.”

  • Because this behavior is considered acceptable everywhere, because law enforcement has been doing it for years, no surprise that it’s also considered acceptable at the airport. People are just supposed to bow down and take it. And they do. We are a nation of shits.

    Shocking and disgusting! Our country has become a police state.

    As a child in school learning about Nazi Germany, I used to wonder how the people of Germany let that happen. Over the last few years, I have totally come to understand how it happened.

    We have already come a long way down that road. When criminals are given uniforms and badges and allowed to run rampant terrorizing the populace in this manner, we are no different than the Nazis and the SS.

    It’s time to take our country back from these criminals. I don’t know exactly how we are going to do that, but I think a first step is to stop the denial and acknowledge that criminals have gained control of our country.

    Put folks in office who are in charge of these police officers who have a zero tolerance for this crap ….

    Where are these folks “who have a zero tolerance for this crap?” Certainly not Democrats or Republicans. Both of these parties have clearly demonstrated that they have plenty of “tolerance for this crap.” In fact, both parties actively promote “this crap.”

    If any politicians could be found who would stand against the status quo, I would be happy to put them in office. But any member of either of these parties must march in lock step with the party or face the consequences…political suicide.

    Both the Republican and the Democrat parties are owned by the same corporate puppet masters. They dance to their master’s tune. We cannot look to them for salvation.
