Recap: Peaceful Streets Project DFW (05/03/2013)

This video was shot in association with Dallas Cop Block in downtown Dallas around DART’s West End Station.

Fortunately, the evening was pretty quiet. The police seemed aware of our presence but didn’t confront us. Witnesses informed us the arrest in the second part of the video was made for public intoxication.

Several pedestrians told us how much they appreciate what we were doing and that they were surprised to learn that they are free to film police encounters as well. So even though we don’t witness any overt forms of police misconduct, this activity is still of value in educating the public and creating a culture where people expect accountability from public officials.
