From Florida Watchdog:
MIAMI — When private security guards working for the Metrorail system in Miami stopped photographer Carlos Miller last Sunday night for taking pictures, they had no idea they’d be brewing a storm.
After Miller was forcibly tackled by the security guards for filming the Metrorail station and later charged by the Miami-Dade Police Department for “excessive noise,” he uploaded video of the altercation to his website and YouTube and they immediately went viral.
The video shows contractors for the 50 State security company allegedy harassing Miller, dragging him down an escalator and putting him in handcuffs.
On Wednesday he told Florida Watchdog he’s filing a lawsuit against the Miami-Dade County for abridging his First Amendment right to freedom of the press, amending a prior lawsuit from March 2011 that occured at a different Metrorail station.
