Man Illegally Detained and Assaulted For Filming by Nassau County Policeman

Date of Incident: August 28, 2015
Officer Involved: Sgt. Hermonn – Badge#580
Department Involved: Nassau County Police Department – First Pct.

The above video was submitted by a reader by the name of Wil, via the Cop Block submissions page. He states in his description:

“I was simply using my First Amendment right to video record in public, when a police officer approached me demanding I.D. He then he grabbed my arm and threw me onto the hood of a police car. I was cuffed and kept with my face down on the hood for 10-15 minutes before being released. My First and Fourth Amendment rights were violated.

I have more recordings and plan to make a FOIA request for recordings of the cctv cameras in the precinct. Everything happened in front of the police station, cameras should have recorded everything, unless they mysteriously got deleted.”

Pls share!
– Wil

    Did that go the way you thought sport?

  • NeonDisease

    Nope, and now YOUR tax dollars can pay the impending legal fees.

  • Yankeefan

    I know, How dare he do what free people should do. What was the RS! Focus on the R in in the RS. This what we get as taxpayers when we do not demand professional police and allow mouth breathers to “serve and protect”.

  • BarneyQ

    Can you say LAWSUIT ?

  • john q public

    this cop should be shot in the face

  • CEDUPZ

    of course you march to any order given correct? OBEY..ever wonder why it’s called a public sidewalk DUH…maybe Common Sense needs so hood planting for him to realize just how bad this place has collapsed

  • Dana Lo

  • Uncle Arty

    straight up question, no fucking dodging, why are all you cop suckers so fucking paranoid of being filmed in public while doing a public service? if you’re not doing anything wrong you should have nothing to worry about right?

  • JYD

    Just like COPS say if you have nothing to hide give me your ID lol

  • Anonymous

    Common sense? Not hardly. You cannot trespass in a public place.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    Not before being shot in the gut 5 hours earlier

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    Lol

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    It might. ;)

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    Cha ching

    With 50000 laws a year being created, even the cops are breaking the law every day. Super artificial intelligence will soon sift through all of the data being gathered and that’s when the true shit will hit the fan.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    You would think people that know about YouTube would stop doing that. And then you realize it’s a fucking mentally retarded pig. I guess I could have just said pig, the other three words were superfluous.

  • If this WIL guy doesnt SUE, HE IS A FOOL!

  • corkie

    I’m sure it went much better than he thought. The payout will be much larger than he could have hoped for, and another bad cop will be publicly humiliated.

    Screw his “safety”! This uniformed chimp has a sidearm, a tazer, asp, pepper spray and he is crying about his safety.
    Here’s a tip for ya chimp, if you fear for your safety, don’t walk up and start screwing with people that are not breaking any laws!

    Cop will find any reason to hold hands, then comes the spreading of the legs
