Copblocking in the NYC

Earlier today I posted a write-up Copwatch Mural & Interviews in Harlem, Copblocking in Manhattan that gave an overview of the productive and fulfilling day Jacob Crawford and I had in NYC – the second stop of the Police Accountability Tour.

On that post, I noted that “I hoofed around Manhattan for a bit” during which time I had a couple interactions with folks wearing NYPD badges. To document those interactions I had with me a HD JVC camera mounted to a monopod, which had a Rode shotgun mic attached. I also used my Droid to stream to

I also noted a few take-aways from the day, including the fact that I should buy one of the extended portable batteries like Luke Rudkowski utilizes. Having a camera but no battery is like having a firearm with no rounds.
