Why It’s Always Important to Film The Police

Jeff Durkin with We Are Change CT breaks down why it’s always important to Film The Police. We go into detail about the cases involving Eric Garner & Walter Scott where video footage helped raise public awareness about their cases & police brutality. We also discuss the importance of filming police encounters and why the police tend to treat people who film police activity as a threat, including the implications that has on the people’s right to film police & much more.
