Me getting handcuffed/detained and threatened to spend the night in jail for the horrendous crime of video taping New York State Trooper Officer Keller at World Laboratory Animal Liberation Week Demo at Charles River Lab

I simply was video taping the interactions of this officer with other activists when he demanded I stop recording. I explained to him that I'm not going to stop recording and that I have every right to film. I asked him what law or ordinance am I breaking....where he then proceeded to try to snatch the camera out of my hand 3 times. I didn't let him take the camera and didn't stop filming until he told me to turn around and that I was under arrest. I asked him what the charge was and he said "Obstructing Governmental Administration." Ultimately, he called his supervisor, came back a few mins later and uncuffed me, giving me a lecture about how I should have just listened to him...even though I wasn't breaking any law. Always film police interactions, it's your right and it will save your ass and your comrades asses when trouble arises. ~Mikey Earthling
