Pivothead Video Sunglasses Winner to be Announced Soon

Over sixty submissions from two dozen people were received for the Accountability Through Transparency Video Contest!  Thanks to everyone who submitted an entry!

In the near future – after Terry Bressi of Checkpoint USA, Ian Freeman of Free Talk Live, Jason Bassler of Police the Police – A Community Project, and myself, active with CopBlock.org, have time to review, discuss and arrive at the entry thought best – the winner will be announced, and awarded a pair of slick 1080p Pivothead sunglasses.

At that time a playlist of all the video entries will be made live, as was done last year for the Checkpoint Contest video submissions.

I’ve been rocking a pair of the Pivothead shades for a bit and think they’re badass – definitely the best pair of sunglass videocameras I’ve owned.

My own motivation for this contest is ultimately to live in a world where a “legitimate” use of violence isn’t accepted. Ideas – and actions – have consequences. As one engages in the act of filming police interactions they shed the fear that allows the bad idea of protection at the barrel of a gun to find purchase.
