Hollywood does it all of the time.
What about the guy being videoed?
Does he have a right to video for his defense?
Yes, the defense is ALWAYS has a right to a copy of the video from ANY camera used.
In all of the documentaries I have seen where Leos come up to investigate some one doing a private protest and not breaking any laws who are
being filmed by the Leos when Joe public raises his camera or video camera all Leos become Alpha Hotel.
The day Joe Public can video back is the day I accept Leos rights to video as the two recordings should tell the same truths!
Perhaps that is why Leos become Alpha Hotels when seeing a camera or video pointing at them as they know they cannot fix theirs to serve their
I am not talking about the example shown.
I am talking about Joe Public's rights to protest and videos for their protection.
I would really like to hear from you Leos out there why you are so camera shy and thinks its your right to video others.
Also I like to know what give you the right to go Alpha Hotel the moment a camera is pointed at you. There are enough videos in the public domain not
to have to prove this point.
You need to get out more then..lol. We get filmed ALL THE TIME as do many police officers. Yes of course there are incidents where an officer flips
out about it. Why, I have no idea, but we get filmed ALOT without issue. Hell not to long ago a friend of mine who works for Dekalb County Police
sang for a woman filming them after a protest, its on youtube...pretty funny stuff.
When does the defense get the Leo's Video? After the editing? When the Leos do not respect Veterans right to protest on Veterans day how can anyone
trust a Leos video?
I accept there are videos, as you say on utube but equally there are documentaries that are not free like on utube but of protesters being harrassed
by Leos being sold for money. Of course the content is not about Leos but about the protest, however, the Leos that show up to infringe the freedom
and rights of the protester then are caught on camera being Alpha Hotels.
I should get out more? May I suggest that you go to a Veterans Day parade and see the Vets who have been refused parade permits who are trying to
make their statement to the people they served and the press. Many times the Parade permits are granted to NG, Reservist and Rotc both high school
and university and many the parades I went to after ETSing from the service there were no actual Vets in the parade. Granted today many National
Guards and many reservist go to war but that wasn't true when I was marching. I was so angry how we were treated I left the country 26 years ago.
Guess what never serving a minute in jail or have been arrested I have the secret "SSSS" on my boarding cards for international flights. I only
know this last time as I was searched and harrassed for 3 hours and the plane lost it take off slot so when I reached the gate they did not take the
boarding card and just said "run". It wasn't until I read the book "The End of America" by Naomi Wolf about the "SSSS" and I went and saw my
last boarding ticket. I kept it to remind me what a terrible time I had! On the part you don't normally get to keep was the mark four times in RED
Secret markings and my only wrong doing was to serve my country and thinking I had a freedom of speech. Because I was wearing my awards on my uniform
jacket during the parades I was picked out by the press and received air time of my points of view. I have been out of America for 26 years and the
rich mans army secret messages have caught up with me.
You wonder why I don't get out much. YOU are what I am afraid of!!! Being presume innocent. Secret messages!!!!
I broke no laws, but travelling back to America, when family are ill, as I am now older and my service connected injuries have caught up with me is
horroric stressful. The harrassment I received at the international gates and in customs is embarrassing, even in front of my children who view me as
someone who was decorated for Valour.
I recommend to everyone who reads my post to read Naomi Wolf's "The End of America"! You might see the rich mans army under a different light.
Then you might understand how scary secret messages are. You cannot defend yourself from what you don't know. There is no court, there is no
