Photographers & Law Enforcement (2)

Yesterday, I posted here about the recent briefs filed by the Obama Department of Justice supporting the rights of photographers with respect to recording law enforcement officers as they do their jobs. This is not an idle matter. Need an example? Consider this instance, reported at The Village Voice,  in which an Occupy activist has been acquitted on the basis of video evidence that contradicted the official version of events provided by the NYPD and taken up by prosecutors. And here is a follow up report, also at The Voice, about the vanishingly small probability that the relevant officers will be prosecuted for making-shit-up in the line of duty.
