This has to be a joke right?

The ACLU has observers taking selective pictures of the police and get to list themselves as plaintiffs in the future law suit.

In reality, they are leftist tools who must be swept up at the same time the police round up so-called demonstrators.

In reality when the police are filming a riot, the rioters are clear to be shown as rioters.

ACLU sues Portland Police: Stop filming, broadcasting riots

The American Civil Liberties Union is suing the Portland Police Bureau to stop them from documenting the nightly riots that have besieged the city for more than 60 days.

The lawsuit, which was filed on late Wednesday, contends that the police union’s practice of filming and broadcasting the riots — which are filmed and broadcasted by numerous journalists, independent documentaries, and livestreamers — violates an Oregon state law that bans police from collecting or even maintaining information about the political, religious or social views, associations or activities of people who are “not suspected of criminal activity.”

As documented by both the local police, the Department of Homeland Security, and numerous journalists across the political spectrum, the riots have been anything but peaceful, and fit the very definition of criminal activity.

An independent videographer and black Trump supporter Andrew Duncomb was also stabbed by a protester near the scene of the riot on Wednesday.

“I was stabbed for being a conservative journalist,” Duncomb told The Oregonian. “My main goal was to show that it wasn’t just the feds creating the problems.”

“Unlawful police surveillance threatens our First Amendment rights,” said Jann Carson, interim executive director Oregon’s ACLU branch. “The Portland Police Bureau has no constitutional reason to train its video cameras on demonstrators — or to broadcast those images publicly on the internet, where federal agents and others can analyze them.”

According to the ACLU, the police livestream’s zoom on individual faces makes protesters vulnerable to face surveillance technology, which would enable them to be apprehended following the commission of a crime.

The Portland police linked to its livestream three times this month.

    Leave it to the current ACLU to object to the collection of criminal evidence.
    No good whatsoever is going to ever come out of this. The Left is pushing for violent insurrection on the order of what happened in Russia in 1917-1918.
