If You See Something, Film Something

January 17, 2012


A new video mashup of police encounters focuses on the right of the people to engage in free speech and free press by recording and photographing police officers, acting in their capacity as police, in public.

Is it a crime for a person merely to talk about a crime that someone else committed? Apparently, Connecticut police believe it’s it is.  According to this story in the AP, Francis Laskowski was arrested after he stated that he understood why Omar Thornton snapped and killed nine people at his employer Tuesday.
