Here’s a video that’s causing an uproar among those who care about photographers’ rights. It’s a 53-second clip recorded on April 19th that shows an encounter one woman had with police officers on a residential sidewalk in South Gate, California. While shooting photos or footage of the assault rifle-equipped officers with her smartphone, one of the men charges her, snatches the camera from her hands, smashes it on the ground, kicks it back at her, and then walks away.

Details are sparse at the moment, and we’ll update you when more info on this emerges.
