Cell phone footage that was confiscated after the police beating death of a Bakersfield man was released this week, not showing much as far as the beating goes, but capturing David Silva’s horrific screams during the last moments of his life.
However, footage from the second phone that was confiscated that was more incriminating, showing the actual swinging of the batons, was apparently deleted.
A California Highway Patrol officer is the latest cop to claim he was in fear for his life when a citizen was video recording him with a cell phone, further confirming that this is a new training tactic to prevent people from recording them.
The motorcycle officer, whose last name is Sherman, pulled over a motorcyclist for a license plate infraction.
At first, Ohio Valley Mall officials remained loyal to the security guard who went berserk on a group of citizens taking photos of a truck that ended up in a ravine on mall property, telling a local news station that she was merely doing her job when she got into a physical confrontation with another woman.
But that was before the jaw-dropping video went viral over the weekend.
A New Jersey California cop who was being video recorded by a smartphone said she was in fear for her life because the phone could have possibly been a gun, marking at least the fourth time this year a cop in this country has uttered those nonsensical words.
After all, if Detective Shannon Todd of the Newark Police Gang Unit was really so stupid to believe that the phone could have been a gun, then why did she first order the citizen to place it back into his pocket?
An animal rights activist was arrested Saturday for video recording from the stands of an Oregon rodeo, the same day rodeo officials hung up a makeshift sign banning video recording.
Prior to that, video recording was permitted from the stands of the Big Loop Rodeo in Jordan Valley, according to Steve Hindi, founder of the animal rights activist group, SHARK, which stands for Showing Animals Respect and Kindness.
