2011-04-22 "Man Filming Police Threatened"
by "The Alyona Show" from "Russia Today" news
Lonnel Duchine, a Vallejo California man, was handcuffed and fined for
shooting cell phone footage of police while standing in his garage.
Filming a police officer is not illegal, at least not in California.
It's just one of the latest cases where police get caught on camera, and
the photographer ends up in handcuffs. Shouldn't the public have the
right to document the police's actions?
