Mainstream media hand over unbroadcast riot footage to cops

fitwatcher | 22.09.2011 16:02 | August Riots | Repression

Due to a court order taken out by the cops, the BBC, ITN and Sky News have handed over unbroadcast video footage to officers investigating the nights of looting and rioting that exploded in major English cities for several nights in August. This is apparently entirely legal - footage doesn't have to be broadcast for the cops to reprimand it.

Consider every corp media lens a FIT lens. No access for the big cameras unless you want it going straight to the cop surveillance dept.
