Sad but true.
That's Maryland Law.
Maryland doesn't seem an issue with Security Camera's until footage is used in a maner that they find inappropriate, say the 7/11 guy post on utube the cop outside beating the citizen.

In Maryland they do have a law that the citizen can not record the police either audio or video, in public or private.


Could you point out that law for me? I haven't heard of such a thing.

[Edit to add] Also as it turns out, now cops are mounting cameras on officers also. In places where they're charging people who video tape them with wiretapping.

If the motorcyclist had pulled out a gun and shot the man who jumped out of the car and threatened his life he would have been within his rights. The cop forgot to say he was a cop. So the recording was perfectly legal as the motorcyclist did not know and had no way of knowing that he was being pulled over. By the way, they beat you for recording them. Most people don't know that.
