Live Streamer Records Own Arrest During Kelly Thomas Protest

Fullerton police began making random arrests during a protest against the [__Kelly Thomas verdict__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2014/01/13/fullerton-cops-found-guilty-beating-death-homeless-mentally-ill-man/) Saturday, including pouncing on an independent journalist who was live streaming the action.

Although police managed to turn off [__PMBeer’s__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/PMbeers) camera, whose first name is apparently Patti, her footage remained accessible on the internet, which you can see above.

PMBeer had been live streaming for more than an hour before that, reporting that police had arrested other photographers as protesters and police squared off with each other in the streets.

But the protest seemed to have winded down by nightfall after they had congregated ~~in a park~~ at the same bus depot where Thomas was killed.

However, an activist told PMBeers that undercover cops were arresting protesters for no apparent reason as they were walking away from the depot. Eventually, more cops came swarming to make arrests.

PMBeers followed the cops making the arrests, trying to capture it on her camera when she was arrested herself.

The footage is dark and grainy, but it is pretty obvious she was not interfering in anyway.

Police told the media that they arrested ten people altogether on Saturday, including three people earlier in the afternoon, one person accused of assaulting a television cameraman.

But the remaining seven were arrested for failing to disperse, they said. And that, of course, took place once the media cameras had left.

According to [__KABC:__](http://abclocal.go.com/kabc/story?section=news/local/orange_county&id=9398691)

> Police Sgt. Jeff Stuart says Saturday’s demonstration drew about 200 people.
> Overall, 10 people were arrested. He says one person was arrested in the cameraman’s assault and two others in spray painting an obscenity and an anarchist symbol. The remaining seven were arrested on failure to disperse charges.
> Officials said they did everything possible to accommodate the protestors, but were forced to take action when demonstrators turned violent. Officers responded in riot gear to disperse the crowd.

You can see PMBeer’s entire live stream below to find any evidence of this “violence,” but in the video above, which is the two-minute clip leading up to her arrest, the only violence is coming from the cops.

As if that’s anything new from this particular police department, which can be reached at (714) 738-6800.

**UPDATE:** Below is footage from [__KCBS__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/hundreds-protest-acquittal-of-fullerton-officers-in-homeless-mans-beating-death) showing a protesting wearing a bandanna over her face attacking a news videographer for apparently trying to record her protesting, indicating she doesn’t have the intelligence to be protesting an issue where the goal is to raise awareness.

For someone being so camera shy, Dianna Jordyan Carrol didn’t seem to mind smiling for her mugshot. Idiot.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
