A Pittsburgh police detective with a history of accusations on his record was filmed during another apparent outburst on Sunday, yelling at bystanders and allegedly tazing a man who was trying to leave a local bar.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette posted video early Monday morning of Detective Frank Rende yelling, “Mind your own freakin’ business” at bystanders before taking out his taser and waving Mark Keyser Jr. away from the bar on Saturday.

Elizabeth Pittinger, director of the city’s Citizen Police Review Board, told the newspaper that after seeing Urick’s video, she thought Keyser was obeying the order to disperse when Rende made his way toward him.

“I don’t know why the officer pursued him,” Pittinger said. “That’s totally inappropriate.”

“Am I under arrest?” Keyser asked as more officers approached.

“I’ve had about enough of you and your (expletive) act,” Rende tells Keyser. “Shut the (expletive) up. You can’t act a human being, huh? You’re a clown.”

“I tried to leave,” Keyser says. “You pushed me over.”

Rende then appears to notice Urick, telling him, “Take a walk, dude, you’re not going in either. Get out of here. Get out of here.”

Then, of course, there’s this:

The newspaper reported that Rende has been accused of conduct unbecoming an officer more than a dozen times during his career, including an accusation in 1999 of engaging in sexual activity with a woman after responding to her call for police assistance during his shift.

More than a dozen times? This guy is clearly not qualified to be a member of law enforcement and should be removed from duty.
