Last week I posted a link to a story about a woman in Rochester, NY who was arrested by the cops for videotaping them (from a distance, without interfering) during a traffic stop. Here’s a brief follow-up from The Agitator, via Ta-Nehisi Coates:
The video below is from a Rochester, New York, neighborhood meeting in support of Emily Good, the woman arrested for videotaping a traffic stop from her front yard. So Rochester police sent four squad cars to ticket the cars of meeting attendees who parked more than 12 inches from the curb. Yes, they even brought a ruler.
That’s some staggering vindictiveness, officers.
(Follow the link to The Agitator for video. It’s pretty funny — there really are a LOT of cops on this one block, for, uh, some reason….)
