Photographers Rights Watch: Miami PD Confirmed to be Monitoring Photojournalist Prior to Wrongful Arrest
Back in February, we covered a story regarding American freelance photographer and Pixiq.com column contributor, Carlos Miller’s ongoing wrongful arrest battle and subsequent First Amendment right’s violation by the hands of the Miami-Dade County Police Department during the Occupy protests.
Miller’s fiasco, which has been covered in full detail HERE, stems from the altercation captured in the raw arrest video below, footage that was later confiscated by the Miami-Dade PD, but eventually recovered by Miller and published publicly.
Usually, most skateboard shorts and team showcases fall under a general visual recipe, choosing to focus almost entirely on the skater and his or her abilities, rather than add elements that may distract the viewer from the video’s purpose. So, it goes without saying that when something along the lines of filmmaker Russell Houghten‘s short entitled Open Horizon (shown above) comes along, it’s refreshing.
