There is a difference between the police in this country and Nazis.

Nazis had much nicer uniforms.

Lehk: FrancoFile: tl;dr
Bad things happen when you hang out where the liquor laws are being broken.
Worse things happen if you are a dick to the cops while they are clearing out the place.

do you always suck cop dick? or only on days ending in 'Y'.

I'm making a statement of fact.

If you believe the photographer's story, then the cops over-reacted when they kneed him, knocked down his camera, and arrested him.  I'd go so far as to say they might have arrested him without probable cause.  But we have only one side of the story.  And the photographer plainly states that he was not expeditiously vacating the property, but was instead stopping inside to take pictures of other people leaving the building.

Large crowds, alcohol violations, late night, warehouse district, Baltimore.

The reasonable, smart, and safe thing to do would have been to vacate the building and to step back from the immediate area before going into full asshole-photographer mode.  You can get BETTER photos from 25 feet back, because you're capturing the entire context.  Plus we invented this nifty "zoom" technology a while back, too.
