Video: Cell Phone Videos Challenge School Police Account
A Los Angeles high schooler is out of jail after several months, thanks in part to the notoriety his case had gained through media accounts and an Internet website called Reddit (How a Google Engineer (and Reddit) Got a Teenager Out of Jail for Christmas). The teen had been arrested at gunpoint and jailed after filming an incident during which a school police officer confronted another teenager. The charge? Inciting violence against the officer - contradicted by abundant video evidence from cellphone videos taken at the scene.
