If you are doing nothing wrong there is no reason to fear being on video. Republicans are just acknowledging they want police to act as criminals.

Are there any market wifi cameras for your cell phone you could wear discretely on your body that don't look obvious, and can be activated by a remote button in your pocket? I'm thinking this would be a profitable idea...

To make this work you'd probably have to leave your phone mobile hotspot on the whole time and the camera would have to be an 802.11-capable device that is associated with somewhere to dump the data.  As for function itself, storing video is prohibitively expensive because of the size of video files.  This makes offloading video in such a way that someone cannot confiscate it and destroy it problematic.

As for the camera itself, lenses, CCD pickups, and even the necessary electronics to capture and process the signal can all be made pretty tiny.  Shedding heat is a problem still but I don't see it being impractical to make such a camera, but then it becomes problematic figuring out how one is going to wear it.  The idea of basically a cufflink-like device that replaces a shirt button could work but one would have to set up the whole system to account for the likelihood that the device will be detected and confiscated and possibly destroyed.

"...in some cases" I read that to mean, "...in some cases" meaning if it shows the popo in the wrong.

Or you can just hang a GoPro around your neck and put the lens between your shirt buttons.

You can stream it directly to the ACLU, then they have the video.

Can't have the public know about cops who abuse the badge, now can we?

Just obey the law and you won't have problems with the police.
 
2021-07-24 6:54:20 PM  
The wording makes it sound ok.  Don't interfere with the police.  But I've seen videos of the police crossing a large street to try to scare away people who were recording the incident on the pretense that they were interfering with official police business.  Cops will always abuse the law for their own purposes.

A police force with public oversight prohibited is the very definition of a police state.
 
2021-07-24 6:56:13 PM  
If the police have enough time to harass someone not breaking the law...then, obviously, the funds allocated to the department need to be reduced so the officers have more stuff to do
 
2021-07-24 6:57:11 PM  
I'm sure that this "no recording within 30 feet" rule won't be abused.

All day. Every day.

And if this goes thru hopefully when it reaches the Supreme Court, videotaping cops shall remain legal

I'm going to guess almost any state in this country since we as a nation seem to love sucking cop dick and blue lives matter!!!

As the police have no obligation to protect the public, even in imminent danger, it would hinder the police to pull me over for speeding as they would have to stop. Even if I am a potential hazard to society, they will have broken the law by hindering themselves in carrying out their duties.

Your link clearly shows that she was murdered by police while minding her own business and NOT breaking any laws.

What if a policeman commits a crime? The police are citizens of the United States as well, I assume.

It seems like ignoring a crime is pretty close to helping someone get away with a crime.


"
(Federal law:)
18 U.S.C. § 2: Aiding and abetting means assisting in the commission of someone else's crime. Section 2(a) demands that the defendant embrace the crime of another and consciously do something to contribute to its success.

Aiding and Abetting
(a) Whoever commits an offense against the United States or aids, abets, counsels,
commands, induces or procures its commission, is punishable as a principal.21

the most important word is interfere.
even trying to ask a cop a question could be taken as interference.

so all you have to do is stand still and record.

All cops are pussy-ass cowards.  It's part of their training.  Pulling over someone for a busted tail light is probably going to get you killed, so act accordingly.

I keep forgetting where I am and keep being , idk the term - amazed is wrong - about how many farking morans there are that just , every single damn time, take the cops side. In every single issue. It is saddening, but, a lot of freepers have no place else to post I guess.
It is that or there are far more psychopaths running about amongst us that I had noticed.
Perhaps it is both.

I post the relevant Onion video for this too often, so I'll just post a quote from it.

"It happened to my partner, and it even happened to our own captain. One day he's just kicking an unarmed pedestrian in the ribs when all of a sudden people with cameras are everywhere. And then they just start shooting what he was doing--all six minutes of it."

/All those cameras with phones! There should be a law against it!
//GOP: We're on it!

We have a society in which people who encounter the police must at all times remain perfectly calm and absolutely compliant at all times regardless of police behaviour, including in the face of threats, contradictory orders and brandished firearms while the police themselves face no consequences when they lose control of their emotions and kill someone.
