The Baltimore Police Department has instituted a new policy that prohibits officers from stopping people from taping or photographing police actions, the agency said Wednesday. The new rules were unveiled as the city agreed to pay $250,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by a man who says police seized his cellphone and deleted the video of an arrest at the Preakness Stakes in 2010. "Four years ago, if we had taken the complaint seriously and addressed it in a very rapid manner, we may not be sitting here today," Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said Wednesday.

Arthur Turco had defended members of the Black Panther Party across the country, but it was in Baltimore that he would be arrested and jailed - on charges that he and members of the militant group had killed a suspected police informant within their ranks in 1969. After a year in Baltimore's jail and a mistrial, Turco said he was offered a deal: plead guilty to a misdemeanor and go free on time served. After discussing it with his associate, William Kunstler - the radical lawyer who defended such brazen civil disobedients as the Chicago Seven and the Attica prison inmates - they decided to take the offer and run. "'Let's just get the hell out of Baltimore,'" Turco remembers the famed lawyer saying.
