Immediate and gritty: on the spot citizen journalism with Roy Blumenthal

Roy Blumenthal has just posted a series of videos to Qik covering the aftermath of a shootout between the police and a group of robbers.

The news broke on Twitter just a short time ago and there are already 4 videos on Qik just a few minutes after the events they covered. This series is shocking and really brings home how effective one person can be with a camera phone and a service like Qik in bringing these scenes to the Web.

Man, talk about dramatic footage … Good job Roy. I hope the cops do recover from their wounds.
