Video appears to show 2013 confrontation with Officer Darren Wilson

It started out as a police call to check on derelict vehicles. When someone on the scene started recording video the situation got tense. That video shows an officer who appears to be Darren Wilson in a heated exchange with the man with the camera, saying  'I'm gonna lock your a** up.' Sara Sidner has the latest.

    I do not know enough about the case of Brown to state an opinion regarding this specific case but I feel that it can be compared with the T. Martin case in that both killers claimed self defense in the interaction with two unarmed Black men while they themselves were armed. Both Black men were teenagers and both shooters were White. I have heard of and read numerous reports of over reaction on the part of Police in interactions with Black people. I believe that this is true. I think that people are frustrated and upset about this unequal treatment and this plays a large part in the anger and protests now going on. This is something that definitely needs to change. I believe that police wearing cameras in all interactions with the public is a start but those cameras need to be turned on at the very beginning of these interactions and not somewhere in the middle or end.

    Why stir up so much trouble.. This case is way past control. We under stand....two sets of rules apply to US folks. Ones that apply to non Cau casians and ones to Cau casians. One states respect the pol ice and one says these rules do not apply to me.

    The guy from the ACLU got it wrong. Its called interfering with official process. Anything you do to cause interference between an officer and the person he or she is investigating is a crime. You see a cop writing a speeding ticket and you go up with a camera and get between that officer and the perp do you think its legal? If you do not allow the officer to fulfill the duties of the office you can be arrested. Even the news media knows you cant jump police lines and go up to the crime scene and walk around where a person was murdered because you have your ACLU rights to record what is happening. If you use a camera to try to cause interference to the investigation even if your are the suspect, you will be charged and convicted accordingly. Like it said, he was later convicted. Now I know enough about this to identify when cops get it wrong. We had an amateur photographer who just happened to be at the right place when a high speed chase ended when the suspect crashed into a tree. The guy gets his camera out of the car and starts shooting stills of the arrest and interrogation. He may have gotten a bit too close but not enough for interfering. But the uniformed HP officer went to the photographer, grabbed the camera from him, looked at the photos, and demanded he erase them. Well, he did, fearing an arrest. Afterwards, he went to a camera store and had the knowledgeable clerk restore them. He then went to the media and later the HP commander apologized and said the trooper involved was called in for more training.
