At a rally against police brutality on Saturday in Alabama, a police officer tried to grab a man’s phone to prevent him from recording the officer’s actions.
Tyler Henderson was among a throng of people holding signs in downtown Mobile, one of the many outcries against police brutality spurred by the recent incidents in Ferguson, Missouri.
Henderson began recording as a police officer gave the crowd orders on where they could stand. When the officer spotted Henderson recording his orders, he immediately grabbed for the phone, as if he had a right to it.
When Henderson asserted his right to record, the officer tried to use enforcement of a Mobile city ordinance that purportedly allows officers to disperse crowds as justification for assaulting Henderson.
