I guess cops can't take your camera without a court order.

Looks like things have been going in the proper direction lately.
Way to go David Morse for sticking this out.

UC Berkeley cops are p*icks from my experiences.
Seems the ones at Davis aren't too swift either.

good....I'm glad the courts are protecting rights when the police cross the line. Although to be fair I can see how these things an happen in the heat of a riot.

A press pass is a press pass, and professional officers should know they can't confiscate an accredited journalist's camera. Good for David Morse.
