For years, the New York City Police Department has publicly acknowledged that they recognize citizens have the legal right to record them in public.
And for years, the NYPD has continually violated the rights of citizens to record them in public.
After all, lawsuits mean nothing if the cops are not held personally liable.
So NYPD officer Jonathan Munoz has nothing to worry about, even though surveillance cameras prove him to be a lying thug when he arrested a man last year for attempting to video record him pawing his female friend.
The video from three surveillance cameras was recently obtained by the law firm, Rankin & Taylor, PLLC, and posted online with narration, which you can see below.
It shows Munoz walking up to a young woman smoking a cigarette on a public sidewalk, then placing his hands on her in a frisky, suggestive manner.
Sensing that the advances were not welcomed, Jason Disisto asked another friend for his phone, so he could start recording.
