    Reason.tv producer Jim Epstein was arrested for filming a fellow journalist's arrest at a Washington, D.C. Taxi Commission meeting Wednesday.

    According to Epstein's account, he witnessed journalist Pete Tucker take a still photo of the proceedings with his camera phone. When Tucker was placed under arrest for taking the picture, the crowd reacted, Epstein broke out his iPhone and recorded Tucker getting hand-cuffed.

    Epstein details what happened next:

    A few minutes later, as I was attempting to leave the building, I overheard the female officer who had arrested Tucker promise a woman, who I presumed to be an employee of the Taxi Commission, that she would confiscate my phone. Reason intern Kyle Blaine, overheard her say, "Do you want his phone? I can get his phone."

    (The woman who was given assurances by the officer that she could have my phone can be seen at the end of the video telling me, "You do not have permission to record this!")

    Heading out the door Epstein ignored warnings to stop and "stay put" and was surrounded by officers. When he tried to get the attention of a group of nearby cab drivers, Epstein was arrested.

    He spent five hours in a basement holding cell, until a Reason.tv attorney posted his bond. He and Tucker are charged with disorderly conduct and unlawful entry and can be sentenced to nine months in jail and $1,250 in fines.

    Unreal. :mad:

    That one lady keeps saying "Let's talk about this. Let's cool down."

    Nonsense.

    That audience saw an injustice and acted. There's too much "talk" going on these days and not enough "action".

    That's dumb. And makes no sense. If someone was determined to get into a building with a gun they could do it.

    Yep. We are starting to live in a quasi police state. Take notes.

    Then why do they need to post a no weapons policy in the first place other than to show who's boss?

    While there are surely renegade and fascist-esque police officers, they mostly do what they are guided to do by those who hire them and the protocol they are given I think. Maybe this cop was acting on his own, but I doubt it. I suspect that he was instructed to do what he did and, in absence of a clear mandate to adhere to and respect constitutional rights (made possible by their erosion), he over-stepped his authority.

    Thank goodness the people there of all stripes, save the politicos holding the forum, were appalled and rose together to say WTF? Despite the lame appeal to "talk" (aka be passified) they refused to tolerate such an affront to personal liberty even if it wasn't their own.

    This video showed that America is still alive and is starting to wake up. As I have stated before, we have GOT to get Liberals out of each and every position of power and soon or it is not going to be pretty. Joe McCarthy was right in principal, but incredibly foolish in execution.

    Well said. I'm sure there were some American Colonists that wanted to "talk" to King George III, but tyrants only respond to brute force. I truly can forsee a second revolution coming against our government which becomes more tyrannical every year, especially under the Manchurian Muslim.

    Hopefully it will never come to that.
