Maryland Cops Pounce on Man for Recording and Not Providing ID, Charging him with Assault on Police

priceofliberty:

The first cop that walked up to Robert Weiler acknowledged that he wasn’t committing a crime by video recording in a parking lot, but he still needed to see his identification anyway.

This after he first snapped a photo of Weiler with his own camera, who apparently was protesting against abortion holding up a sign with a picture of a bloodied fetus last June.

Berwyn Heights police officer James Ignowski insisted he needed to run his name for warrants “because you’re recording all the events that are happening here.”

Moments later, Prince George’s County police corporal Allen strode up, provided his name and badge number, then proceeded to assault Weiler with Ignowski joining in.

Weiler was charged with disorderly conduct and 2nd degree assault on a law enforcement officer and goes to trial September 23, according to his Youtube description of the video he posted Monday.

"From 1945 to the end of the century, the United States attempted to overthrow more than 40 foreign governments, and to crush more than 30 populist-nationalist movements struggling against intolerable regimes. In the process, the US caused the end of life for several million people, and condemned many millions more to a life of agony and despair." .. (William Blum, ‘Rogue State’)
