Police in Tempe, Arizona has used police drone footage to justify the arrest of three Black Lives Matter protesters last weekend. As you can see in the footage the protesters were blocking an intersection. Two people were arrested for allegedly damaging a passing vehicle and a third one for resisting arrest.
Here’s an article that explains how the iconic photo of the Burnside Bridge protest in Portland was captured. The aerial photo of thousands of people protesting and laying down on the bridge on June 2 for 8 minutes and 46 seconds in remembrance of George Floyd, quickly went viral. The photo pushed photographer Andrew Wallner into the spotlight and created some controversy over safe drone flying practices. The protest lasted for less than 10 minutes, but the iconic drone photo captured this moment for eternity and for all of us to see.
Over the last two weeks, we have seen a number of murals saying “Black Lives Matter” appear. The first one we reported on was on the streets Washington, D.C., but since then we have seen more of them appear across the country in cities like Seattle and Brooklyn. This drone video shows the latest one which is being created on the streets of Birmingham, Alabama.
New drone video surfaces that show the Black Lives Matter street art in Brooklyn, NY. Apparently, this is the first of five murals that are to be completed in the various boroughs of New York City.
Even though Jamie Goodwick is authorized by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to fly a DJI Mavic 2 Pro outfitted with a small parachute over people. He didn’t need to do so in order to capture the protesting crowds marching down Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Portland, Oregon with his drone.
