YOU CAN’T ERASE MY VIDEO! Christopher Sharp has charged the Baltimore City Police Department (BPD) with violating his constitutional rights when officers confiscated his cell phone and erased a video he’d made of police making the arrest in 2010. A federal court has smacked down attempts by the BPD to harass and intimidate the photographer who is suing the department over civil rights violations, because police stopped him from photographing a public arrest. Christopher Sharp won a protective order in US District Court in Maryland last month, barring the BPD from pursuing a “witch hunt” into his past. http://pdnpulse.com/2013/04/photog-abused-drugs-and-has-bitter-ex-mother-in-law-so-what-photography-still-isnt-a-crime.html
