 An award-winning video journalist was arrested by Charleston Police Tuesday after he took pictures of Santa Claus and a choir at the Town Center Mall.

Scott Rensberger, 47, of Washington is charged with battery on a police officer and resisting arrest, according to criminal complaints filed in Kanawha County Magistrate Court.

According to the complaint, Rensberger slapped the hand of Charleston police Cpl. R.C. Basford as the officer attempted to block Rensberger from taking a picture of him. Rensberger then "attempted to pull away" from the officer, Basford wrote in the complaint.

The only way to stop these uniformed psychopaths is to sue the living hell out of them. That "officer" was using torture against the photographer and should be pitched off the force to face the civil suit alone.

 Police have become a new category of thugs, bullies, and criminals that citizens have to defend ourselves against. They are the New Blue Mafia!
