National Press Photographers Association Slams Cops’ Camera Crackdown

National Press Photographers Association Slams Cops’ Camera Crackdown: "Cops in Rochester, New York, arrested a woman who was merely standing in her own front yard filming them conducting a traffic stop in front of her house, once again raising concerns over the continuing unconstitutional crackdown on filming police officers.

28-year-old Emily Good has been charged with obstructing governmental administration after she politely refused a police officer’s order to stop filming, leave her front yard and go back into her house.

The resulting video, capturing the entire incident, has gone viral online.

As WHEC-TV reports, Ms Good’s tape shows one of the officers telling her that he feels “threatened” by her standing “behind” him because she appeared to be “very anti-police.”"
