The danger of documenting the atrocity: Freddie Gray videographer has been arrested at gunpoint

Kevin Moore, the man who filmed Freddie Gray's brutal arrest, has now himself been arrested following "harassment and intimidation" from Baltimore police.

Moore was arrested at gunpoint last night along with two other members of Cop Watch, a group dedicated to filming and documenting police work.

His video of Gray's arrest was shot shortly before the man suffered spinal injuries while in police custody that led to his death.

Moore claims that despite having co-operated with two detectives in the Baltimore Police Departmentís Office of Internal Oversight and given them the video, police posted his photo and told the public that he was "wanted for questioning", asking people to identify him.

"What is so important that you have to plaster my picture over the Internet? I've already spoken," Moore said, suggesting that they posted it simply to intimidate him.

3. Since this was being investigated by the DA

 

that sounds an awful lot like interfering with an ongoing investigation. Couple more kkkoppers need to see the inside of the pokey.

5. making history

 

This entire issue is history in the making. We are literally watching history in the making as America rises in unity to end what has been a common practice among law enforcement. Nobody should be above the law. Not even our own law officers. Their treatment of this man is the only way they can lash back now that they are being held accountable for their actions. I pray for all involved that justice be done.

7. You'd think the NSA would film cops. (For our security).

And also ironic that we're subject to violation by outside snoops (NSA), and we just have to take it.
