Case against woman videotaping traffic-stop in front of her house dismissed

On May 12 in Rochester, NY police made a traffic stop that happened to be right in front of Emily Good's home. Emily decided to videotape what was going on while standing in her front yard. Even though Emily Good was well within her rights to stand wherever she damn well please on her own property, Officer Mario Masic demanded that she go back inside. Watch the video:

She was then arrested for not complying. The good news: Today in court the judge dismissed the charges against her. The bad news: officer Mario Masic still has a job. We're pro-police here at People Liking People but we also realize that dickweeds like Mario Masic tarnish the reputation of the rest of the force. It's not rocket science to know that people are allowed to stand wherever they want on their own property. When idiots like Mario Masic can't understand simple concepts like this it makes us wonder how they qualify to be a janitor, let alone police officer.

Let's get to the truth here: Mario Masic was doing something he wasn't supposed to be doing and didn't like the fact that it was being caught on camera. He then made up some bull about not feeling safe as a justification to make Emily Good go away and stop recording what he was doing. Fortunately Emily Good stood up for her rights and she is indeed a hero. The judge agrees that she didn't do anything wrong and anyone with half a brain knows she didn't do anything wrong. Let's work hard as a community to get rid of scum like Mario Masic that ruin everything for the rest of us. People like Mario Masic unnecessarily increase tension between police and community while invading the rights of others.

If anyone has any info on Mario Masic please post a comment, we'll be updating this page as information is received.

Info on Mario Masic:

Update: Mayor of Rochester Thomas S. Richards has issued a statement regarding the incident:

"Whatever the outcome of the internal review, we want to make clear that it is not the policy or practice of the Rochester Police Department to prevent citizens from observing its activities — including photographing or videotaping — as long as it does not interfere with the safe conduct of those activities," the statement said.
Score one for the good guys! Now let's get rid of shamed officer Mario Masic and move forward on a positive note.

Tribe meets white man for the first time: Bullshit

There's a video making the rounds lately showing what is claimed to be a tribe on Papua New Guinea meeting a white person for the very first time. It is so unbelievably staged and we're stunned by the number of people who actually believe it's genuine. As was the case with the blogger that was supposedly a lesbian in Syria, people seem to be so emotionally moved that they don't realize how obviously fake it is. They want to believe because it touches that special feel-good spot in their heart. Watch the video for yourself.

The comment section is filled with garbage like the following:

I could not stop crying. This is a forever lost experience. This sort of awww does not exist anymore. It will again though...when we finally meet a civilization outside our own world. WE will be the tribesman from the jungle. I think this is the best video I have ever seen on LiveLeak and I thank you for posting it.

What exactly are we lacking where a video like this fills some type of void? First of all, whether this video is real or fake, it's exploitative. It's looking at humans as if they're animals in the zoo. And that's supposed to pull at your heart strings? This idiocy mixed with the gullibility of believing this stupid video really makes us weep for humanity.

Update: William Skyvington sheds some light on the truth and origin of the video:

This charming video is in fact a fake, which has nothing to do with Papua New Guinea. The white man you see in the video is a Belgian moviemaker, Jean-Pierre Dutilleux. The "Papua New Guinea natives" were in fact members of the Toulambi tribe of indigenous Amazonian "Indians" (what a silly word for people in South America). This fake "first encounter" between the natives and a white-skinned visitor was filmed around 1999.
