From the "Nothing Surprises Me Anymore" department, the following video taken by a citizen of Newark, NJ.


Apparently, law enforcers are now being trained (?) to treat cell phones like they were firearms.  Is it an effort to prevent lawful citizens from recording police activity, even though it is not a crime?
One can only make assumptions at this point but, after watching Detective Shannon Todd detain and, ultimately, arrest a man simply for recording her, it's no wonder this video is going viral and  that citizens are becoming more suspect.

Watch for yourself and let me know what you make of all this in the comments below.
