    These officers are trying to do their job. Someone getting in their face, distracting them, trying to talk to the person being charged, IS disorderly conduct. LET the officer do their job and stay out of their way.

    That's great, distract them by filming and being a nuisence and then the person being charged harms the officers. Wouldn't you feel like an idiot then? Being distracted when lives are at risk is dangerous. And you are foolish to be a part of that.

    Police have one of the hardest jobs in North America, with the highest stess levels. Constantly having to look out for the community and their own lives. Policemen are killed every day, leaving behind families to grieve. My spouse is a police officer and we are so tired of the judgement and complaints. Regardless, he has still been a very understanding and compassionate officer and has been there for people at the worst moments of their lives.

    Let them come to your job and follow you around and film you, I guarentee you will be distracted.

    You are really missing a very important story with your very limited coverage of the police shooting of an unarmed man in Pasco Washington. This video is astounding, and need national coverage.

I was beat up, losing 2 front tooth, my mom and sis were beat and raped repeatadly. all along the borader you see trees hung with torn clothes from women like my mom. the first time we try to come we did pay drug runner to take us, but they left us half way and we had to return 2 year later we cross and i had to watch my mom and sis be hurt by men who rob us . almost all Latinos I talk with have simular stories hands cut off, rape, murder. not all of us were able to be born here like America and have Spanish familia.
