New video claims Officer Wilson told resident to stop recording
By ISABELLE CHAPMAN
A new video has surfaced of Officer Darren Wilson, who allegedly shot and killed unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown on August 9. The video, which was taken by Ferguson resident Michael Arman, was reportedly captured in October of 2013, when Wilson came to Arman's home to investigate derelict vehicles, according to KTVI.
In the 15-second Youtube video, Wilson tells Arman that he is not allowed to take pictures of him, saying, "If you want to take a picture one more time, I'm gonna lock your ass up."
Arman replied: "Sir, I'm not taking a picture, I'm recording this incident, sir. Do I not have the right to record?"
Wilson told him that he didn't. However, according to the American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri, this isn't the truth. The organization told Newsweek that filming the police is perfectly legal.
"There are First Amendment protections for people photographing and recording in public," Mickey Osterreicher, an attorney who serves as General Counsel for the National Press Photographers Association, told The Huffington Post.
According to the police report filed by Officer Wilson about this incident, he described that Arman had taken his cell phone out and recorded the incident.
"I advised Arman that voice recording would be acceptable, however, that we need to move forward on the derelict video situation....Arman then stated that I must state my name to him. I advised Arman that I would not comply with his demand and to remove the camera from my face," Wilson wrote in the incident report. Wilson then arrested Arman for "failure to comply."
The grand jury is still out on whether or not Officer Darren Wilson will be indicted for the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, but the decision is expected to be announced within a week or so, according to CBS News.
