Tom got his start filming the police after an encounter where he witnessed serious brutality and the Torrence Police destroyed his recording.
Arrested countless times for filming since that incident, he has not let it slow him down one bit. Infact, it has caused him to up his game even harder, purchasing a DJI Phantom 2 Drone fully equipped with a 14MP camera with 1080p HD video capability- thanks to a settlement from the Hawthorne PD.

Death By Metadata : Jeremy Scahill & Glenn Greenwald Reveal NSA Role in Assassinations Overseas [full video at link] — http://www.democracynow.org/2014/2/10/death_by_metadata_jeremy_scahill_glenn
In the first exposé for their new venture, First Look Media’s [https://www.firstlook.org/] digital journal The Intercept [https://twitter.com/the_intercept], investigative journalists Jeremy Scahill and Glenn Greenwald reveal the National Security Agency is using complex analysis of electronic surveillance, rather than human intelligence, as the primary method to locate targets for lethal drone strikes.
The NSA identifies targets based on controversial metadata analysis and cellphone tracking technologies, an unreliable tactic that has resulted in the deaths of innocent and unidentified people. The United States has reportedly carried out drone strikes without knowing whether the individual in possession of a tracked cellphone or SIM card is in fact the intended target of the strike.
