RE: Charges dropped against woman who videotaped cops

There is more to this. A group of citizens gathered at a local community center to discuss the arrest of the woman when 4 police cars pulled up and started ticketing the cars of the citizens for not parking close enough to the curb.

The cops’ actions smack of petty retaliation.
