Woman Arrested for Video Taping Police, Who Ticket Her Supporters
WHEC-TV reported that Emily Good of Rochester, New York filmed police officers while they were conducting a traffic stop in front of her home. Good’s videotape shows the officers telling her that they feel threatened by her standing behind them because she seemed “very anti-police.”
An officer then asked her to go into her house, an order which she refused. After briefly arguing about Good’s right to be in her lawn, the officers warned her that if she continued to refuse they would arrest her. She continued to argue, and was then handcuffed and arrested.
The case against Emily Good was later dismissed, but supporters of Good were targeted a during meeting of with selective ticketing. Another video shows Rochester police using a ruler to determine whether cars were illegally parked too far from the curb. A police spokesman said today that the chief’s office was investigating this incident as well.
