Seattle police receive spanking for taking photographer's camera

Thomas Hawk says:

Apparently the City of Seattle settled with amateur photographer Bogdan Mohora after the ACLU helped him file a claim over a false arrest when Seattle cops James Pitts and David Toner arrested Mohara for taking their photograph during the arrest. Bogdan was awarded $8,000 and the officers were disciplined.

Just another friendly reminder that photography is not a crime, even if the police tell you it is.
