Massachusetts Cop Threatens to Smash Camera into Man's Face (PINAC)
Wednesday September 4th, 2013
A Massachusetts cop threatened to smash a camera into a man’s face if he dared take one more photograph of her.
Instead, he started video recording her.
The video shows Barnstable police officer Gretchen Allen walking away from Robert Bastille, who runs a local news site called Hyannis News.
“You’re going to hit me?” Bastille can be heard saying. “I”m sorry, you’re going to threaten me, officer?”
“Are you trying to cause a scene right now cause I’ll arrest you for disorderly instead,” an obviously distraught Allen tells Bastille.
Instead of what? Smashing the camera in his face?
According to Bastille, her exact words, which prompted him to turn on his video camera, were, "I swear... take one more photo and I'll take that camera and smash it in your face."
