Police harass Indymedia journalist at home in wake of Unite the Right II #shutitdowndc

On the evening of August 16, an Indymedia journalist was harassed at home by police. There was one Montgomery County, MD white police SUV and two dark unmarked cars. Four cops were visible. One or more approached the house, saying they wanted help identifying others shown in a Daily caller sting video targetting counterprotesters against Unite The Right II. The journalist refused to cooperate.

Update: The poster of the Daily Caller video which triggered the harassment has been identified as Benny Arthur Johnson of NW DC.

This is all the camera could do in the dark. The cops are faintly visible to the left of the cars, two of their three cars are in this shot
