The Cleveland Police livestreamed from a chopper flying over RNC protests

This week the Cleveland Police Department is engaging with large protests at the Republican National Convention. As is customary, it is using its helicopters to get a bird’s-eye view of the situation (likely to report crowd movements to units on the ground). But there’s something incredibly peaceful about looking at a city from above, as we can in this Periscope from the Cleveland PD. It’s encouraging to watch a streaming video involving the police and not see tanks in the streets or unjust acts of violence. – Jordan Golson, The Verge http://ift.tt/29NZCyB
