If you are so weak that you allowed a COP to give you legal advice in a court you are too easily led. you should have asked for a LAWYER and stood your ground. The cop CANNOT simply walk up to a prosecutor on court day and ask for a more serious charge than given just to intimidate you...no way. The cop did not show that busted you...in my state that means a dismissal, automatically. No cop can testify for another that was not there, the cop bluffed you and got you to plead...they would have LOST the case if you had told that cop to stick it and gotten an attorney.
NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVER believe what a cop says...especially about legal matters. it is like going to the Godfather for advice on how to violate OMERTA !! Would you accept advice on your health from a truck driver? Then why in hell trust a COP to tell the truth? you got GAMED and bluffed...too bad...likley you would have won...thats why the cop didn't show and had his pal intimidate and lie to you. Typical for cops, which is a sick fact but one we must always remember:
Cops do NOT tell the truth to defendants!! NEVER!!

Guys these are just some of the things I've noticed throughout my career. Some funny, some not. I agree it's important that Law Enforcement Officers need to be "Public Servants". I myself run a very tight ship, but I also know how fast a situation can turn deadly for an officer. I've always stressed to my officers the importance of treating people the way they would want to be treated if they were stopped by a cop.

All videos can be edited.
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 purposes.
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 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 stamp.
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.
