Citizen Assaulted While Filming Oregon Gubernatorial Event (Video)

"This is my 1st Amendment right, this is a public meeting and that's a public official up there"


On September 23, 2010, at a speech by Gubernatorial candidate John Kitzhaber, a citizen was violently assaulted

Approximately 10 minutes into the speech the moderator informs the public not to film. The citizen continues to film, stating it is his First Amendment Right. The camera is smashed into his face. This is clearly seen on the video
