Busted After Recording Police: Uproar Over Rochester Woman's Arrest

UPDATE: CNN's affiliate in Rochester, New York, WROC, reports the Monroe County District Attorney dropped the charges against Emily Good. The City of Rochester has launched an internal investigation of Good's arrest and of an incident in which Rochester officers ticketed numerous supporters of Good while they were gathered for a meeting.

Emily Good is a 28-year-old community activist, concerned about racial profiling in her Rochester, New York neighborhood. When she started recording what looked like a police arrest in May, she was the one to get arrested. The full encounter was caught on her i-Pod camera. And this Monday, Good will be in a Monroe County courtroom, asking that the charge of obstruction of governmental administration be dropped. Good and her attorney, Stephanie Stare, spoke with CNN's Don Lemon exclusively about what happened and if a person can ever disobey a police order.
