A collection of various videos that we have seen on this blog over the years were compiled into a Youtube video to serve as a powerful and vivid reminder why we must never back down from recording cops, even if they threaten us with arrest.
I’m not sure who created the video, but it was uploaded over the weekend to Gramrastag’s Youtube channel and starts off with the memorable Memorial Day incident on Miami Beach where cops ordered a man out of the car at gunpoint for video recording them shooting another man to death.
It also features the more recent video of a Los Angeles sheriff’s deputy elbowing a mentally ill woman on a bus who was not physically threatening him.
It runs under five minutes so it’s worth watching, even if it’s not telling us anything we don’t already know.
