Fiery VIDEO: MD Cop Tells Student He Lost Right to Freedom of Speech
Two Maryland police are under investigation after they had a confrontation with a student who videotaped them making an arrest in Towson.
Sergio Gutierrez, 21, a student at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, recorded police as they responded to a disturbance among members of a large crowd. On the video, an officer tells Gutierrez to shut off his camera, but he keeps recording.
Then, the officer tells him to walk away and shut up “or you’re going to jail.”
The student is heard saying, “I thought I have freedom of speech here.”
An officer responds, “You don’t. You just lost it.”
Police say at least two people were arrested during the disturbance. They were charged with resisting arrest, disturbing the peace, second-degree assault and drug charges.
Attorneys Jonna Spilbor and Arthur Aidala debated the situation on “Fox and Friends” this morning.
“This is an egregious example of what not to do when you’re a cop whose job is to protect and serve,” Spilbor said.
She said that the officers should be fired and that she would sue the police department.
“For what? Hurt feelings?” Aidala fired back.
