So, here's the first piece of evidence we've seen, and we're still waiting for police dashboard cams of the pre-arrest. Let us know what you think.
In a journalistic sense, a video like this is very interesting to us -- the newspaper and all news consumers -- because it offers us a window into news as it unfolds. It's a piece of community journalism at its rawest and most interesting, and it raises a lot of questions. How did the events at Stray Cat get to this point? Obviously, why the pepper spray? Why the Taser? How are Brolin and Wright interfering with police? What aren't we seeing, either during, before or after the video? Does what we see follow standard police procedure? And since these were all misdemeanors, why did we have to wait nearly five months to see such evidence? Are we, as a newspaper, right to draw your attention to it? (Same goes for TMZ and the person who recorded the video.) Now that you've watched this video, what more do you need to know? Let us know what you think.
