(AP) A Roman Catholic priest who monitors law enforcement treatment of minorities with a video camera released footage that appears to contradict the police account of his own arrest.
A police report says the Rev. James Manship was confronted and arrested Feb. 19 because he was holding an "unknown shiny silver object" and struggled with an officer who was trying to take it from him. But a 15-second video released this week by Manship's attorneys shows East Haven police Officer David Cari asking Manship, "Is there a reason you have a camera on me?"
"I'm taking a video of what's going on here," Manship replies. "Well, I'll tell you what, what I'm going to do with that camera," Cari says as he approaches the priest. The tape then goes blank.

I don't know what to add to these type of threads anymore.
I'm scared to type!
Keefe criticized Manship for "creating controversy where none needed to be."
"You've got to conclude that he was out there with a video camera in an attempt, in my view, to provoke the police to do something,"

Here we go again is right! Lets blow one incident out of proportion. I get filmed all the time on the streets and so do MANY of the officers/deputies in my area. Its not a big deal. If you really have that kind of time to stand around and watch me do my job, so be it.
We don't attack the person filming or taking pictures. The only way I will even approach someone with a camera is if I thought they MAY have seen something or may have information. Has nothing to do with them filming my arrests or dealings with the public....
