Description

(Washington DC) April 18th, 2014 between 6 and 7 pm "Cop block" was taking photos of the "SkyCop Major Mobile Surveillance Unit (MSU)" on 16th and W St. in the Southeast section of DC. We proceeded to drive off when 10 undercover cops blocked us in and accused the driver of having an open can of beer in the car. We asked if we were being detained and if so what for. The under covers reply was we have dark clothes on and this is a "high crime" area. There was a confrontation between a cop and a cop blocker about her recording the incident. As well as the cops trying to say that the driver didn't a valid license and that the I.D. didn't match the car. Which implies that the car was "stolen." Not to mention the crazy statements such as "why don't you record the bad guys up the street killing people" and "you're wasting our time." Lets remember that they detained us, it wasn't the other way around. So on that note we plan to continue watching the watchers. #FTP #ACAB http://tchallmedia.wordpress.com
