For cops, citizen videos bring increased scrutiny

• USA Today
Diop Kamau's home in a leafy, gated community just north of town is not easy to find — for good reason.

For more than two decades, the 52-year-old former Hawthorne, Calif., police officer has made a living embarrassing cops with a video camera.

Stung by the rough treatment of his father during a 1987 traffic stop by another California department, Kamau turned to a second career recording police across the country in compromising — often abusive — encounters with the public.

This article is horrible and government was meant to shape people to think that individuals with video cameras are trying to make a living embarrassing cops with a video camera.

Complete BULLSHIT!
