Photographer pepper-sprayed by Parliament January 20th, 2009

I have posted the raw footage leading up to this scene. The reason is that I think that this footage raises many questions that need to be addressed at some point. The main question for me is: Did this photographer pose a threat that justified spraying a chemical weapon directly in his face? What was that threat? I have posted un-edited raw footage, with time-code in order to be fair to everyone involved.

To see the raw footage see the rest of this post.
