Mountain Justice EPA Protest
Copwatch of East Atlanta was observing a mountain justice demonstration on March 1st, 2010 in front of the EPA office in Atlanta. While filming the police line in front of the building the following interaction took place. The videographer was told by a Federal Protection Services officer that he could not film the front of the building from the sidewalk, that it was illegal. When the videographer requested the officers name and badge number the officer refused to provide them. Instead he asked for the videographers ID, and then immediately walked away.
