Video Evidence Plays Key Role in Prosecution of Convention Protesters

In Videos Challenge Accounts of Convention Unrest, the New York Times covers the use of video shot during the Republican Convention in September, 2005:
A sprawling body of visual evidence, made possible by inexpensive, lightweight cameras in the hands of private citizens, volunteer observers and the police themselves, has shifted the debate over precisely what happened on the streets during the week of the convention.
Jim Dwyer, the reporter who wrote the story, also tells the story in a video:

  • It's amazing to see how cops and prosecutors in NYC tried to be so quick (and slick!) in railroading, ramrodding, and otherwise BULLYING the people of New York that many of those who were arrested deserved to be prosecuted, thrown in jail, and the key swallowed.

    As for The Times and their "Liberal bias", I say HA! Why don't the Republicans start TELLING THE TRUTH for once instead of accusing others of having a "Liberal bias" as they try to pass off EDITED (or would DOCTORED be a better word?) copies of video tapes as being somehow "whole"???
