Kansas Teen Video Ruckus: Journalism And A Peek @ The New Digital Watchdogs



Like it or not . . . And most people don't . . . Here's a look at the new journalism in the era of the Internets . . .

KAKE: Kansas teen has incident with police over videotape

KSHB: Teen has incident w/ police over video

KMBC: Video gets teen in hot water with Topeka police

Just a few deets:

The 17-year-old says while at the site he noticed people jaywalking in the presence of Capitol Police. The teen says he then started videotaping the activity and asking the officer why he didn't intercede. The teen returned to the Statehouse on Thursday with his camera running and had a discussion with an officer before being escorted from the building.

Check the clip:



Not exactly groundbreaking stuff but probably the last look at investigative journalism without a profit model

These cops have no reasonable expectation of privacy. It is perfectly legal to video tape and audio record any communication between you and them

I thought the cop was being very patient with him and that he was being very chickenshit.

Is this kid (named Addison Mikkelsen) related to the Occupy KC rapist Michael Mikkelsen?
