I Love Cell Phone Cameras

Two lessons here:

1. The government can use new technologies, but so can the people.

 2. Always be careful around coppers, they can always escalate a situation.


 William Norman Grigg reports:
[Coiln] Flitch and his friend Adam Roberts had left their locked car in the parking lot of a closed business while attending a party. In an interview with Photography Is Not A Crime, Roberts recalled that when they left the party they were confronted by [Saratoga County, New York Sheriff’s Deputy Shawn ]Glans and a comrade, who had spotted a legally-purchased .22 rifle in the backseat of the vehicle. Exercising his rights, Fitch refused to consent to a warrantless search, which Glans perceived as a”contempt of cop.”
After Roberts posted the video to YouTube, and PINAC organized a call-in campaign to the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office, Glans was placed on unpaid vacation.
