It is not even a matter of Constitutional Rights. It is a matter of being legal. But now there are some states trying to establish legislation to make it illegal. Now THAT goes against the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.That is what the founding fathers meant by a "tyrannical government"

A public servant in the line of duty in a public space has no expectations of privacy.
And to quote a lot of cops
" if you have nothing to hide then why are you worried if someone films you? "
The people are getting more and more restless with the way police officers are almost never held accountable for their actions and things will come to a boiling point that will change everything and will be no coming back from.

I really wish there would be an overriding legislation at the federal level that just sets this in concrete and supersedes all the conflicting local and state legislation, go ahead and get it over with.

No first Amendment right to record police. Why should there be any first Amendment right to record police????????

In the interest of justice and good policing what right have they got to refuse or resist? What have they got to hide?

If they obey the law and engage in exemplary police behavior they have have nothing to worry about do they ?????

Trouble is, come to think of it, I spose, is that they probably already do engage in exemplary police behavior as some people define it.

As long as no judge declares it illegal to video tape police, surely it is irrelevant?

The trial court judge is overstepping his boundaries.




Yea catering to the local ideas about such things. Glad something like this can get kicked up even though one would expect any judge to be apprised of the standing higher ruling.

The court here sounds like its making the convoluted mistake of figuring anything not cover is fair game for the state to operate as king.
