KANSAS CITY CITIZEN MEDIA: POLICE THREATENED TO CONFISCATE CAMERA DOCUMENTING WESTPORT HOT MESS!!!
Testimony from Kansas City citizen journalists after a ruckus in Westport last night.
Take a look:
"No matter what people think about the things technology can do for us, we need to understand what it won't do. Technology doesn't stand up for our rights unless there is human interaction and participation. The public has been forced to go out and gather information happening in our day to day life as citizen journalist.
"Saturday night, we as citizen journalist were shut down and censored by the Kansas City Police Department. As we pulled into Westport parking lot we saw a man on his knees and an emergency situation develop. All we had was a cell phone to grab video and as the situation was unfolding the KCPD ordered us to stop taking video or our phone would be confiscated."
Take a look at the video just posted to Youtube, the confrontation takes place in the last few moments of the clip:
