Man Beaten & Arrested for Filming CT Police, Gets Charged with Interfering

We Are Change CT recently had the opportunity to meet & interview Nathan Fournier who was in Hartford, CT out with a few friends on Saturday March 1st, when he saw an altercation happening with 4-8 people involved. Nathan saw that the police were using excessive force decided to pull out his cell phone and began recording.

After being warned by one of the officers to leave Nathan responded with ‘It is my right to record this, I am not interfering”. After stepping back approximately 10-15 feet away, the same officer who first told me to stop recording came at meand twisted my arm, causing me to drop my phone. In a moments notice there were 4 officers who threw Nathan to the ground, struck me once with a baton, and pressed his face against the icy snow bank.

If anyone has video footage of Nathan’s Arrest contact him on Facebook:
