The trio were part of a group of about 20 demonstrators led by local civil rights activist the Rev. Jarrett Maupin.
Maupin says suburban Phoenix police departments need to be more transparent with the public. He accused them of selectively sharing video and other images to further criminalize victims of excessive force by officers.
Tempe police did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.
