Live Streamer gets Camera Stolen Covering Ferguson Protests
A live streamer named BassemMasri vowed to his viewers that he would continue covering the protests in St. Louis County, “24/7 … unless I’m in jail.”
Or unless he gets his camera stolen, which is what happened less than ten seconds after he made that promise.
The person who stole the camera continued running for almost two minutes for several blocks while the camera continued recording.
BassemMasri took to twitter to say he believes it was a police agitator who stole his phone, which is something he should easily be able to determine if he had any sort of tracking app on the phone.
Despite the setback, BassemMasri continued tweeting and posting photos of fires from his back-up phone.
