Another Reason Chief Landsdowne should Apologize

7 Dec

SDPD has repeatedly arrested independent media for filming police raids and arrests

At Occupy San Diego many members of the media team have been arrested for filming police raids. In this incident the tape was intact and you can clearly see that the man holding the video camera was arrested for nothing more than standing on a public sidewalk. Why? Because the cops were raiding the Civic Center. Watch the shortvideo:

Here is a video of what happened right before the photographer was arrested:

If you think the behavior of the SDPD seen on this blog warrants an apology please feel free to contact Chief Landsdowne during business hours at (619) 531-2777.

In other news I’ve been on hunger strike for about 46 hours and I am feeling fabulous.
