When the Ohio State Police deployed to a pro-gun rally at Kent State University in September 2018, accompanying the Super-Trooper-Outfitted Officers were a handful of less-kitted-out cops. Those officers were armed with video cameras.
Their job, among other things, was to provide a clear record of arrests, and they had a distinct advantage over everyone else there to film: access. As on-duty officers, they could get get as close to the action as they wanted.
As was expected, Antifa protesters showed up at the rally and a number of arrests were made.
Grab some popcorn and let’s see what was filmed.
