On Tuesday Pete and I were, once again, in the Greenfield, MA district court to present the motion to dismiss published here last week. The court process itself when as expected with the DA trying to get our motion tossed due to a technicality and the judge refrained from viewing the video. An act that could end this whole ordeal quickly. Anyone who views the video can see all involved knew they were being recorded and that no one was harmed.
The judge seems to be sympathetic to our story and even scolded Jeffery, the DA, about returning our footage from the arrest. I’m still not sure what he’ll rule on the pending motions and I wish he would just watch the videos himself. He seems like the type of guy who does the right thing. Watch the recent court trip below and then tell us what you think. Do you think public officials have an expectation of privacy? Should recording public officials be illegal?
