Cameras are the new weapons, or at least thats what it seems like in the eyes of the police. Police officers from the San Diego Police Department pretty much attacked and arrested a man for recording them with his cell phone camera. Watch the video, its pretty awful.How did this all happen? It started when the police were writing a citation for Adam Pringle for smoking on the boardwalk. Thats completely fair. But while getting written up, Pringle decided to pull out his Samsung Galaxy phone and record the whole situation. This is when things turn ugly. You can see the police officer fill out all the details on the ticket and then when he realizes hes being recorded, tells Pringle to put the camera away because it could be converted into a weapon. When Pringle declines to put it away, the situation escalates and the police officer knocks Pringles phone down to the ground.
