Fire Cop Accused of Pulling Gun for No Reason on Man Recording Him

police-officer-by-elvert-barnes

Target: Chief Brian Masterson, Director of Rohnert Park Public Safety

Goal: Punish and fire the officer who pulled a gun on a man just because the man was legally recording him.

The Rohnert Park police department is reviewing a video that shows a public safety officer pulling a gun on Don McComas simply because the man was recording him. The video is now posted on YouTube. The video shows the officer driving toward McComas then stopping and getting out of the car. The officer tells McComas to take his hand out of his pocket.

McComas tells the officer he’s not doing anything wrong, and the officer pulls his gun. McComas asks him to put his gun down, and the officer moves closer and asks if McComas is crazy. After some more back and forth the officer walks away and tells McComas that he doesn’t care if the recording ends up on YouTube.

Although we’re still waiting on the full story, the recording appears to show a situation that escalated quickly and dangerously for no reason. This kind of behavior by someone sworn to serve and protect is unacceptable.

Urge officials to punish and fire the officer who pulled a gun on McComas just because he was legally recording him.

I urge you to punish and fire the officer who pulled a gun on McComas just because he was legally recording him.

Sincerely,

    Shame on the cop who didn’t want to be filmed and pulled out his gun as a threat. SICKO.
