You'd think police would loosen up on their policy now that Rodney King is dead.

I'm just going to put a sign on my car.

"If you choose to interact with any inhabitant of this vehicle you consent to audio/video recording of the interaction, consent cannot be waived once an interaction is initiated"

Carth: I'm betting the app gets more use by people wanting to covertly record sexual encounters than people wanting to record police arrests.


Exactly. See, this guy gets me. This app solves half the problem of covertly recording my sexual encounters. Now for the tricky part: having sexual encounters.

Sully11: If you get stopped by the police so frequently that you need an app, you're doing it wrong. And by it, I mean life.


You sound white.

Don't worry about that; girls find it a turn-on when you spend the entire conversation awkwardly holding up your cell phone towards them.

Is it wrong that I want to get this really cool free app just so I can use it to illegally record encounters that have nothing to do with the police?

I mean, I'm a middle-class white guy, so it's not like I have any use for its intended purpose. I couldn't get stop-and-frisked if I tucked a bazooka into my bike shorts.

Is there an app that turns the ticket the cop gives you into a warning that he was originally gonna give you until he found out you were recording him.......you know...for liability purposes

Some years back, I read a book called "The Truth Machine" in which everyone wore watches linked to off site secure storage that allowed them to, in court, submit recordings in evidence.

I thought that I would rather not live in a world like that.

I still feel that way.

OTOH, I also agree with the statement that if the Cops are doing nothing wrong, then they have nothing to fear from recordings of their activities.

And with the militarization of the cops - example: Yesteray at post office, state wildlife cop. 21 round automatic pistol and THREE extra magazines - 84 shots, just on his belt. WTF? And don't get me started on the High and Tight styling of the current pseudo cops/assault troops....

/cops used to have hair
//I even knew some with as much as 4-5" of hair
///on their heads...

Weaver95: a LOT of those laws are being ruled unconstitutional. the cops don't have a 'reasonable expectation of privacy' when they're out in public. Neither do average citizens either for that matter, so the courts have been leveling the playing field as far as that goes.


After all, Mr. Police Officer Sir, if you've done nothing wrong, you have nothing to hide.

Am I the only one who finds it amusing that the link site keeps nagging for my facebook login user/pass (which I deleted a couple of years ago) to view the content. how about an aclu app for that?

Carth: FTFA: "The app lets users record audio and video discretely with a stealth mode that hides the fact that the recording is happening."

I'm betting the app gets more use by people wanting to covertly record sexual encounters than people wanting to record police arrests.


Jumping Christ on a pogo stick....

I am completely embarrassed that I didn't think of that. Unbelievable. Sigh...

I seriously am getting old/slow. :(

If they're not doing anything wrong, they should have nothing to fear.

A cop objecting to being recorded is practically an admission of guilt.

6655321: LEOs will, during the routine patdown of a person, confiscate any cellphone as department policy. This is being done to protect the officers' safety. Then add a charge of recording a public official in the performance of their duties.

Feel safe, citizen?


They'll also rape you, then go back in time to prevent you from going to school on the day they teach the importance of using citations when making substantial claims.

ZAZ: Be careful. This app is illegal in all-party consent states such as Massachusetts and Illinois. Don't get yourself in more trouble than you deserve.
