Shine the light on cops throughout the day

Feb 12, 2008 Shine the light on cops throughout the day

Here’s another example why people should shine the light of day on police abuse with their cameraphones, and why strong legal protections need to be in place for videotaping, photographing, and recording police. This abortion of justice by this now-suspended cop took place in broad daylight near Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, which ordinarily is swarming with visitors, working people, and car traffic throughout daylight hours. If this cop was ready to be so abusive in such a public place, I shudder to think what he tried to get away with under the cover of darkness. The Baltimore Sun article is at http://baltimoresun.com/news/opinion/bal-te.md.officer12feb12,0,2952754.story.
