War on Cameras

Austin Police Demand 50-Foot Distance for Camera-Wielders

One activist appears to have aroused their ire


Austin police are trying their best to deter Antonio Buehler from recording them in public, doing everything from arresting him, accusing him of "inciting violence" against them and attempting to create a rule in his honor that would require citizens with cameras to stand at least 50 feet away from police officers

But Buehler is hardly deterred, vowing to keep cops within the scopes of his video camera.
