Police claim man’s First Amendment suspended for legally filming
A young man in Maryland reportedly “lost” his First Amendment right Sunday while attempting to film a police encounter.
In cellphone footage uploaded to Vimeo, a large group of police thought to be from the Baltimore County Police Department can be seen arresting two people as a massive crowd watches from the sidewalk. As the video’s author quietly films, one officer spots the camera and immediately approaches.
“Get out of my face,” the officer bizarrely says after walking up to the camera.
