You have the right to film police. Here’s how to do it effectively — and safely.

Geoffrey A. Fowler, Technology Columnist at the Washington Post:

17-year-old Darnella Frazier delivered a “master class” in how to record police. She ket her distance so her phone wasn’t confiscated, she used a steady hand, and she posted to Facebook. Here’s how you can create a video record if you find yourself in a similar situation.

I would be more likely to use Twitter or YouTube than Facebook. More available on the open Internet, and less likely to be censored. Also, despite my being very active on Facebook, I hate it.

That’s assuming I have the courage to do what Frazier did. I don’t take that for granted. What an amazing girl.
