some bad cop stories are worse than others but they all include brutal cops and innocent citizens;

New Orleans, LA — Filming the police is entirely legal, in every state. However, all too often, we will see police officers overstep their authority and arrest, attack, and assault innocent people for the constitutionally protected act of documenting their behavior in public. As the following case out of New Orleans illustrates, police officers will go to extreme and often violent lengths to make sure they are not being filmed, up to and including beating and falsely arresting an innocent man.

On the night he was arrested and attacked by police, Jacobi Cage had done nothing wrong, committed no crime and was simply filming police who had just broken up a fight at a parade. Being innocent, however, was no defense.

As the video below shows, Cage was filming when an unidentified deputy told him to step back. Cage listened to the deputy and took a couple of steps back but this apparently wasn’t enough for Det. Nicholas Broussard who was so offended by Cage’s First Amendment right, that he smacked the phone out of Cage’s hand, sending it flying behind him.

After assaulting Cage and destroying his property, for good measure, Broussard flipped Cage the bird and walked away. Though flipping the bird is legal, we’ve seen cops arrest people for it time and again. But Broussard’s brothers in blue chose to ignore his flipping of the bird and only noticed when Cage returned the gesture.

As Cage returns the middle finger to Broussard, his brothers in blue attack. JPSO Sgt. Keith Dowling grabs Cage by the shirt, dragging him over the mesh barricade before smashing him face-first into the pavement.

Cops then pile on top of Cage like a pack of coyotes as they punch, kick, and knee him — for and watch more......
