Berlin police not allowed to film peaceful demonstrations

“There is no legal basis for filming peaceful demonstrators in Berlin,” a German administrative court spokesman said today, referring to a practice carried out by cops here for several years now.

“Besides, it’s only worth filming them once they start throwing rocks and stuff anyway.”

The judges said the recordings were an inadmissible breach of basic assembly rights, as they could scare people (without rocks?) away from public gatherings.

  1. They can find all of the exciting videos on You tube anyway. Who wants to see aging, leftist hippies not burning things down, when you can see young, fresh faced leftists destroying the Deutsche Bank around the corner from my house?
