"To be fair, he was being pretty instigative and obnoxious towards the cops. But still, that doesn't warrant an arrest."


Then it isn't fair. I have an issue with these cops having thin skins and all of a sudden get upset that their dainty little feelings are being hurt by the public. It's a tough job and they should be used to the fact by now that some people don't like cops.

The next time some stranger is being obnoxious towards me I better damn well see a cop arresting that stranger.

The police usually don't stop those things from occurring. They show up afterwards to investigate and arrest people.

2013-07-09 12:42:39 AM
I'm confused.  I always thought that it is perfectly legal to film, photograph, record people who are out in public.  By going out in public you are essentially giving up your right to privacy.  Maybe I'm wrong?  Or maybe this doesn't apply to cops?  Or maybe cops are confused about the definition of the word "public"?
 
2013-07-09 12:43:14 AM
fark, I drive a Chevy 1500 extcab PU. I park like an idiot out in the depths of the parking lot most of the time. I've driven cross country, and I have spare doors that I might like to pop for access, I don't want someone parking next to me those days.

I can't criticise cops who have to make a quick parking. While doing a "criticism seizure" might be an asshole move, I wouldn't criticise parked cops. They're probably there for a reason. I know they're a special class of asshole, but let them be an asshole in favor of the retailer (or hotel, as might be appropriate).

There used to be a Denny's nearby.  At 2 a.m. you could pull in and the cops would be in both handicapped spaces and the fire lane.

The un-rape-my-wife department? Your comment overflows with Just World delusion.

Let's repeat this for all the cops and cop defenders.

The courts have repeatedly ruled we have the RIGHT to film the police when they are out in public.

Cops can't claim ignorance.  They've been told this already.  Any cop harassing and/or arresting someone because they are using their camera is a cop who is knowingly breaking the law and should be charged.  Yeah, I know.  Good luck with that.
 
2013-07-09 12:56:17 AM
This is why if you are going to be a dick and film cops farking up, you do it unobtrusively and then post it, not draw all sorts of attention to your self doing it.  Doing it like these guys is just asking for a beat down.
 
2013-07-09 12:57:54 AM
They need cops for cops.. They just watch for cop bad behavior and arrest the cop when they break the law or mistreat/wrongfully intimidate the public.  I think purple and lime green lights would be great.

They carry would very large guns that could go through a ballistics vest like a hot knife through butter.

They would of course could never have been a cop.

If you have any thoughts of ever videotaping the police do not be an idiot about it.  For example, do not step out into the street to get your shot. Also, do not try to get closer to the police (like they second guy did when he actually got less than one car's length away from the guy being arrested) to get a better shot.  Keep your distance and obey all laws while videotaping.  In other words, do not give the police any excuse to arrest you.  Yes, you have the right to videotape police doing their job so long as they are in public and you are not interfering with their duties.  Obeying the law and doing everything right will not ensure that you are not arrested, but it will reduce the chances.  Play it smart, and film the fuzz anywhere and everywhere that you can.

Oh, remember this: ACLU of Illinois vs. Anita Alvarez.  The 7th Circuit Federal court ruled that the State of Illinois law that made it a felony offense to audio record or videotape with sound any police officer without their consent was Unconstitutional.  The United States Supreme Court affirmed this ruling when they denied certiorari. So film away!

linked in the article, but i'll post it anyway.

and yes, some guys with their camera phones are d-bags and provoke cops, but without doing anything illegal. these cops need to have thicker skin and not respond to it unless they're physically assaulted or aforementioned d-bag is doing something illegal. when they fly off the handle and start shiat, all it does is create excessive legal fees and settlements for the departments that come out of taxpayer dollars and put further strain on a municipality/city/county/state's financial situation.

The guy was being a drunken douche.

The cops, as usual, were being arrogant, armed douches.

Arrested?  Camera "confiscated"?  Jesus, you guys are pussies anymore.  Lunch money bullies with sidearms.

OR, ostentatiously video the cops while a confederate surreptitiously records your subsequent beating, arrest, and equipment confiscation. Sue and profit.

OK, change it to your mom or your girlfriend or change it the murder of your parents or your best friend or change it to coming home and finding that someone had broken in and looted your apartment.  The point is that internet tough guys like you go on and on about how the only good cop is a dead cop but you would call the cop in the blink of an eye if you were the victim of a crime.
