Cop just ripped my mask off and threw a tear gas canister under me as I was kneeled filming an arrest of another member of press. I had been in the same position filming for quite a while before this cop decided to target me.
44 seconds into this video you can just barely see a cop single me out for attack. I was surrounded by press and wasn't moving.
