NPR’s “Morning Edition” did a report on photographers’ rights this morning, featuring specifically the cases of teenager Khaliah Fitchette in Newark, NJ, and motorcycling wiretapper Anthony Gruber in Maryland. You can listen to it here.
As former police officer and current Boston University Professor Tom Nolan says:
“The police will get the message when municipal governments and police departments have got to write out substantial settlement checks,” he says. “Standing by itself, that video camera in the hands of some teenager is not going to constitute sufficient grounds for a lawful arrest.”
