"Simon Glik, a lawyer, was walking down Tremont Street in Boston when he saw three police officers struggling to extract a plastic bag from a teenager’s mouth. Thinking their force seemed excessive for a drug arrest, Glik pulled out his cellphone and began recording. Within minutes, Glik said, he was in handcuffs." Apparently recording a scene of arrest is causing harm and interfering with the cop's job at ensuring our safety. We disagree; how can surveillance hurt a situation like that? What do you think?
