Maxwell was filming police activity near Chinatown in Salinas, peacefully from a safe distance, on May 30th. The officers present followed Maxwell after the activity, pulled him over, and cited him in retaliation. He was cited for multiple trivial things such as a broken mirror, front license plate missing, and improper use of a car horn.
Police abuse happens all the time. How we prevent police abuse for the good of citizens and law enforcement alike is to film and observe; it is our legal right to do so. Bad guys do not want to get caught and will do anything to stop it and police have a lot of privilege to abuse. It is important for all you to come and show support. To let government and law enforcement know that we will not stand for bullying and selective enforcement against those who try to protect society in a completely peaceful and legal manner.
