This video shows Federal Reserve workers harassing and threatening reporters with arrest for videotaping the building.

Title: Reporters threatened with arrest for filming private Federal Reserve building
Part of the video’s description:

Reporters from INFOWARS.COM were harrassed and threatened with arrest in downtown Kansas City, Missouri after filming the local branch of the private Federal Reserve building. Security guards working for the bank approached the reporters at a city park that houses the National WWI memorial and demanded that they provide their names and disclose why they were filming the building.

After Aaron Dykes refused to provide his full name, he was told to leave public property immediately or face arrest because the bank was concerned about what he was filming– despite the fact that the female security guard repeatedly admitted he had done nothing wrong.

In the face of Free Speech under the First Amendment, as well as common sense, the other reporter, Rob Jacobson was also told to leave despite complying with the request to provide his name. “Officer Booth”, the female private security guard for the Federal Reserve, dared to pronounce that he was “guilty by association.” When this reason was challenged, the stupified “Officer Collins” told reporters that they were not to ask anymore questions and should in fact leave immediately.

What jurisdiction they had– if any– is unclear, as the cameramen were approached on city property.

Here is the video:

What has America come to that one can’t film a Federal Reserve building without being threatened?
