He is not going to prison.
The federal appeals courts have wrote that: "The filming of government officials engaged in their duties in a public place, including police officers performing their responsibilities, fits comfortably within these principles [of protected First Amendment activity].

Gathering information about government officials in a form that can readily be disseminated to others serves a cardinal First Amendment interest in protecting and promoting the free discussion of governmental affairs.”

I couldn't agree more. Too bad we can't hold politicians accountable like this :)

Man, you have a serious problem with the police and law enforcement in the US. This is getting more and more surreal by the minute. Keep fighting the good fight and please keep us posted on the developments of this case. :flop:
