Charges dismissed against woman arrested while videotaping traffic stop from her front yardSubmitted by doctor011 on Wed, 06/29/2011 - 16:47
he case against a 28-year-old woman charged with obstructing governmental administration after refusing a police officer’s order to leave her front yard while she was videotaping a traffic stop has been dismissed.
WHEC reported a judge dismissed the case against Emily Good of Rochester, New York on Monday because there was insufficient evidence of a crime.
Good was arrested while she filmed police officers conducting a traffic stop in front of her home. Good's recording shows the officers saying that they feel threatened by her standing behind them because she seemed "very anti-police."
The arrest added to the already heated debate over videotaping police officers.
In a joint statement, Mayor Tom Richards, City Council President Lovely Warren and Rochester Police Chief James Sheppard said they agreed that the case should be dismissed. http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2011/06/28/charges-dismissed-agai...
