"Reminder: You Have a Right to Record the Police"

It's probably best just to let the person standing next to you do the recording.

Roid Rage is Real.

In some states it is a felony to record police. Also, cops generally don't know the law, they are not lawyers.

Not just a right --a civil responsibility to record their actions. Safety in numbers.

From what I understand supreme court trumps that.

That's really the only way to combat them. Record them in their criminal acts of brutality so the world can see.

But yet they will arrest you for breaking the law they might now know, makes sense.
I hope you weren't posting that in some type of defense for cops, cause if they are going to arrest you for breaking a law, they better know that that law. I think that is part of their job, I could be mistaken tho

I didn't read a defense of cops and no you aren't mistaken either. they should know the law. I think he meant there is a huge difference in the law and procedure. They will do whatever they need to do in the moment and if it violates someones rights that is a matter for the courts.

You can be the third party and record the police.
And it easy to say don't get in the situation, but when you do, you have the right to record what goes down to protect yourself.

In the states where all parties must consent to a recording it may be. There have been cases won even in Illinois the state with the strictest laws about recording.

Many cops don't know the laws about recording. You can politely remind them but they can still arrest you. Of course it will probably get thrown out of court but you've still spent time in jail and spent money on a lawyer.

Always be very discreet when videoing LEOs, It's been known for them to mistake a camera for a gun; or so they say.
Stay back as far as you can and zoom in. Be ready to switch SD cards when they confiscate your camera or phone.
It's best to be in a crowd of people.

And some money on bail unless you want to sit in a cell for 2-5 days awaiting to see the judge about the 'crime'

I know this is a pipe dream, but I wonder how much of a change it would be if cops were required to be lawyers, or at least know the law to the degree a lawyer does.
I am sure some will say they do, but I highly doubt it.

ETA: and thanks for the link about recording, answered some questions I did have about my state and the laws regarding it

Look. Youre 1,000% right. But that wont stop them from stopping you anyway...including smashing your camera. They will do it, they have done it, and will continue to do it.

We have to remember this...of course its a case of us saying "Hey. You cant do that!" as they smash it to the ground or stop you filming. They will. You arent gonna sue them over it today...not tomorrrow...not in a week.

And if you do? It will take a LONG time to come to any justice for you. Bottom line? They can't...but they will. Just like that illegal search and seizure crap.

OF COURSE they need a warrant. But that is little consolation while they are doing it. They have always done it this way.It wont stop them at the time.

Thats my whole point. So? It WILL happen 1st anyway.
