SSCC #27–Springfield MA

The amateur videographer with the colorful vocabulary who memorialized the alleged 2009 police beating of Melvin Jones III during a traffic stop may be charged with illegal wiretapping.

It appears that numerous departments and prosecutors are going after those who would document police abuse.  Without documentation, these officers would be allowed to continue unchallenged in their crimes.  Instead some individuals brave the harassment and intimidation brought by our government for documenting them. 

Remember the government is force and any attempt to restrain a government official is an attack on their unbridled force.

State Sponsored Criminal Count: 27

Because the DA’s job is not to punish the police officer who broke the law, but to intimidate the public into no longer providing due diligence.  This wouldn’t have been a problem if she just hadn’t taken that video of the incident happening in public.
