Video reverses protest persecutions


Apparently, when you arrest people for exercising their 1st Amendment rights and claim that they were violent and resisted arrest, you might want to make sure that there aren't six amateur videographers taping you.

Of course, until they find a way to transmit to a broad audience in real-time, it won't matter much. Free speech was still prevented, and only monstrous damage awards are likely to encourage police departments to think twice in the future.

How long before first-person videoblogging becomes a source of mainstream news?
