TEXAS COP UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR POINTING GUN at CAMERA MAN

Published

on

A man who likes to record his interactions with police on social media filed a formal complaint Monday against a DeSoto officer who pointed a weapon at him over the weekend.

Charles Dominguez, with his attorney by his side, said he now fears for his safety after having a weapon pointed at him as he rode his BMX bike in the parking lot of a shopping center on Saturday.

Dominguez told WFAA he started recording on Saturday because he saw a DeSoto officer in the parking lot.

“I do what I want to on my videos,” Dominguez said. “But I can see I can get in big trouble.”

The video Dominguez posted to YouTube on Saturday shows a DeSoto Police SUV turn in the parking lot and Dominguez following on his bike.

The vehicle then brakes and the officer steps out of the vehicle and draws down on Dominguez.

The 30-something BMX enthusiast can be heard shouting back “I’m just riding my bike”.

We showed the video to retired Arlington PD Assistant Chief James Hawthorne.  The current top cop at Cedar Hill ISD says viewing the video raises some immediate questions and concerns.

“Officers should not just get out and point their guns at people just because they’re being videoed,” Hawthorne said. “No, that should never happen.”

Hawthorne adds while we do not know what happened before Dominguez started recording, nothing in the 2-minute video appears to convey a life-threatening situation that would warrant an officer preparing to use deadly force.

DeSoto Police acknowledged the video on Monday, saying on social media “the incident is currently under review.”

Dominguez was arrested January 29 in the lobby of Desoto PD for “interfering with public duties”, related to his filming of officers according to his attorney Corwyn Davis.

“You can try to paint the picture that this is a guy that’s being annoying and cussing at cops (on YouTube) and all that stuff but ultimately it does not matter,” Davis said. “If you or I did that (pointed a gun) we’d get arrested.”

This afternoon Dominguez filed a formal complaint against the officer who pointed a gun at him on his bike.

DeSoto Police have not identified the officer but did tell WFAA the officer has not been placed on administrative leave.

Photographer Arrested for Imaginary Crime, Let Go After Torture Session at the Saint Roberts Police Department

From YouTube: Local Police fail to understand the law when they arrest citizen for an imaginary crime, only to let him go with no charges.  Cannot wait to hear the excuses from the Chief of Police and City Attorney

Published on Jun 11, 2018

Here I conducted a first amendment audit of the Ft Leonard Wood army post in St. Robert, MO. I initially thought it was a pass on the part of the military police. Little did I know they had called in the local police. The local police had zero knowledge of the law and even told me that federal code supercedes our amendments. I was stunned. Officer Smith of the St. Robert, Missouri police along with officer Mendez and another unnamed officer rushed me, grabbed me and then put me in handcuffs while informing me I was under arrest for a violating 18 USC 795, a federal code and for failure to comply. The cuffs were put on in a purposefully painful way and I was left to sweat in the back of a sweltering police car with no air conditioning. I was transported to their PD and forced to ID. They were going to force me to do so by involuntary fingerprinting. Ultimately, they released me without charges after an hour or so of empty threats and attempts to rattle me. It’s unacceptable that a police officer would be so ignorant of the law he’s tasked to enforce or so corrupt that he imposes his will instead of law. I’m certain I know which these officers are and I hope they have good attorneys. They’re going to learn that can’t violate people’s rights and that our “amendments” actually mean something. St. Robert, Missouri Police 573-451-2000 Chief Curtis Curenton 573-336-4700 Ft Leonard Wood military Police 573-596-6141 Please help keep me fighting for your rights https://www.gofundme.com/help-picture…
