Austin Cops Arrest Another Police-Monitor Photographer

For the fifth time in less than two months, Austin police arrested a man while video recording them in public.

This time it was Joshua Pineda, 26, a member of the Peaceful Streets Project, the organization that focuses on video recording police as they interact with the public.

But this time, they did not confiscate his phone, which most likely was a result of Pineda exercising his right to remain silent while incarcerated.
