Why are some many cops like cockroaches? They seem to hate the light of public scrutiny.

I wonder if the brainstem obstructing the camera actually believes we won’t know whats going on behind him.

How about because they haven’t notified the next of kin and they don’t want this person’s family to find out he is dead by watching Youtube.

I think that would be any cop anywhere. I think they are all trained to tell any kind of reporters to go away even if they are legally doing so. There might be some good reasoning for that, like evidence contamination, but if it is a problem it might be a more fair criticism of higher brass and the gov

Anyway, they pulled the guy out of the tent so my guess is protester on protester violence. I feel sorry for the guy trying to block the camera. He looks like he was ready to cry. Politics aside, I feel sorry for him. I think if I had a friend who was shot, I wouldn't want reporters to see the body either.

As good of an excuse as any, I guess.

It wasn’t a case of not wanting to be taped. The cop was doing what is required, moving people back to protect the crime scene. You can hear someone say “move him out of the scene.” But of course this is a chance for you to take the obligatory poke at the police.

One OWS shooting death at Baltimore MD, now one in Vermont, another shooting in Oakland CA, rapes, robberies, assaults and thefts at about all OWS sites, untreatable TB outbreak at Atlanta OWS. Thousands of arrests at many OWS sites, defecating in the streets etc, etc, etc, etc, without end.

Yep, just like the Tea Party gatherings, oh wait, non such ever happened with Tea Party people.

Who was that guy with the paper bag? Some kind of police operative/infiltrator? He was clearly doing the police bidding of obstructing the camera’s view.

Amazing that all those protesters were not cleared from the “crime scene” but the media was.

Since the OWS crowd is implicitly for bigger government and more ‘equitable distribution’ of incomes ie higher taxes I worry about unionized police being more sympathetic to their cause than is healthy for the rest of us.

Who was the punk with the clipboard who not only violated the Reporter’s First Amendment Rights, but man-handled him? Was he a cop or a paramedic? I’m thinking he was a cop. Charges should be brought against him.

If they were doing their job, they would have taped off the crime scene, first thing. There was no “crime scene” boundary. Barney Fife, thinking he was hot sh**, just wanted to play “big-shot cop”.

Yes, That’s why we taxpayers pay for their crime scene tape. They keep out everyone, regardless of whether they are recording, and don’t harass anyone outside the tape. Cop-boob neglect to protect their crime scene with tape, go after the video recorder, and ignore closer folks. It’s about them, not justice. Otherwise, why would they form unions to negotiate against the people they “serve”?

I guess “crime scene tape” hadn’t made its way to that jurisdiction?

Who knows how long they were on scene before they moved the man back? But yes, that should be a priority, to protect the scene. But there appeared to be no ulterior motives to the cop moving him back, only in some minds.

Story says they recovered the weapon and there is no danger to the public. I’m thinking suicide maybe?
