Photography Is Not A Crime
September 11, 2013
A Houston deputy was charged with a misdemeanor two years after a dash cam video shows him repeatedly kicking a man who was already being smothered by several other deputies in a melee in which four other family members were arrested, including a woman for video recording with her iPhone.
Harris County Sheriff’s Captain Jimmie Drummond, who kicked the man so hard that he ended up with broken ribs, is facing a single charge of official oppression, punishable by up to a year in jail, which we know he will never serve.
The initial reason for the confrontation was that the man allegedly ran a stop sign, even though he was never cited for that.
