Yeah I wouldn't want my picture taken either if I was a life threateningly obese high school drop-out who had to settle for law enforcement with no aspirations in life other than to abuse power given to me by a piece of metal pinned to a shirt. This fat turd is pathetic, and he as well as the thousands of other cops just like him, are the epitome of the "fat pig" persona that more and more people have in their mind when they see cops nowadays. He is harrassing the very people that his career obligates him to protect, and I don't understand how people like this get to keep their job after acting like this and embarrassing all cops with his stupidity, it seems that police officers superiors don't even care, they just give them a little slap on the wrist suspension with the same old generic public statement, then it's back to the streets to harrass people. I guess his ego is so inflated that he feels the need to threaten anybody that videotapes him doing his job. It's completely OK for him to videotape you during a DUI stop, but if the tables are turned and he gets videotaped, he'll "Break your f****** face". I think that if cops were doing their job normally like they should they would have no problem with being videotaped.

I don't blame him one bit..I personally hate it when strangers take my pic for no damn reason.

Damn..with anybody being able to legally photoshop any picture,and how easy it is to do..you never know where your face will show up.

Also he is a LEO , and maybe some just want to get revenge on him,for an arrest, or action that he was obliged to do.

I think it should be illegal to just take anyone's picture , yet at the same time..I like that we have videos of policemen ,or anyone..showing what really went down in a certain situation.

*sighs* ..its a tricky situation..but just random picture taking for the sake of it..is wrong in my opinion.

At least he was reprimanded in some way, but if he was not a LEO he would at least do a couple days in jail

Double standard?

How is this Officer's privacy being invaded any more than mine is when my photo is taken from a camera in a street light? Or a security camera?

Fact is this Officer is in a public place, performing a public service which is paid for by public taxpayer funds. He has no expectation of privacy.

If you are naked in your home and someone is peeking in your window, your privacy is being invaded. If you are standing naked in the street and I am looking at you, your privacy is not being invaded. For this officer to claim his privacy is being invaded is laughable at best. Using this Officer's logic, anyone who is looking at him without a camera would be invading his privacy.

I just explained why the hell not.

Somebody could take a pic of your cute 4 year old, and use her face photoshopped on another kids body, and post it on a child porn site.

The possibilities are needless with the technology we have today, and unfortunately so are the places on the net to use these photos....and apparently its not illegal to photoshop with someone elses body parts.

It is to put it on a site for false advertising I hope., but for the many who don't peruse through the sex sites,and especially the child sex sites..how are they ever to know?

Its a crazy world..with low ball tactics for revenge over the slightest injury, and not much in the way of justice over it.

I hope this explains why the hell not ...as you asked...or maybe you need someone to actually be brave enough to come and ask you why your significant others face is on a profile of some cheap sex website. If they actually have the nerve to ask...cause so many would just whisper it along to others,and never bother to check out the validity of it.

I understand that what you are describing is possible, but do you believe that we should let the possible exception dictate the rule?

I don't think this person was videotaping the cop so that they could photoshop it and send it out on child porn sites! That analogy seems to be a bit too extreme in this case.

This is the problem.

The public is so babied and pathetic that now threats are against the law.

Who cares if someone say something. Race, Sex now violence.

What the HELL?

ITs only words. We the people seem to bring all this crap on ourselves.

Complaining about every damn thing.

The cop did not do anything except speak.


Threats are nothing. People are just whiny little maggots these days. And this is coming from someone who
HATES cops with a passion.

People need to grow up.
How about you threaten a police officer and see if they are just words? Officers of the law are paid for with our tax dollars,they should be respectful of the public,and as a public figure there is no reason they cannot be filmed
.Making idle threats constitutes bodily harm and that is illegal.Words do have power!try them out sometime on a police officer and you will find out just how much power they have.

Who knows ?..some cop hater..could photoshop his head onto some body..and stick it on a gay porn site...just for a giggle. You have no idea why this person was video taping ,and taking pics..so you really can't say..can you?

Why would an anonymous person, just be filming a cop on duty for no apparent reason?
I would want to go up to someone and say the same thing..if they were just a stranger, and were filming me in a crowd.

Could being the keyword. Just because I could murder someone with a knife doesn't justify making them illegal. I could make tons of these kinds of examples. Law is perfect as it is. You can take any pictures in public to your hearts content. If you misuse them then you can be charged.

No one can logically have any expectation of privacy when in this place we call "Public".

Anyone whom expects privacy in "Public" believes in the impossible.

yes..hopefully you can..but ..from my understanding of laws ..anyone could post a pic of your face on a naked body, and keep it the privacy of their home, and do so quite legally.

So what constitutes misuse?

I do understand where you're coming from , because its a freedom of rights issue, but where does ones persons right over rule anothers right?

Just because some punk a$$ people say something is illegal doesn't make it so. If any law goes against our human rights it is not A firgging law to be obeyed...and I for one will not obey it. If these bastards would stop all the $hit they do to innocent people they wouldn't be worried. Well, long ago people ask for a "KING" to be put over them...now I hope they are all glad they have one....now, go lick his/her boots and kiss their A$$'s....and wipe it for them also if they demand you too..... you stupid, ignorant people........

Yes, it's possible....

But we cannot let "possibilities" be used as a catalyst to take away personal freedoms. It opens too many doors that are best left closed.

What about the personal freedom of not wanting your photo taken??..especially by strangers...guess that doesn't count as personal freedom?

Ok..what human are you protecting the rights of.

Lets see what kind of human rights you call out for, when you are the focus of the lens or someone else you love.
I basically could park myself out on front of your house,and film you as soon as you come out, and for as long as you are on public property, every single day, by your standards of what freedom is.

If you're going to film a cop, film him when hes breaking the law....at least there would be more of a moral reason behind it.

That's a valid argument.

So which side to we err on? Do we have to look at it on a case by case basis?

Edit to add: In this case there was a fight that had just broken out and this officer was on the job. It's a little different than stalking someone and filming them outside their home for no reason at all.

So what if they did? You wouldn't even know about it would you? So who does it hurt? This is a weak argument.

Fact is, it was ruled there is no reasonable right to privacy in public. That is why the papernazi or however that is spelled can do what they do. That is why news crews can follow anyone that draws their negative attention around. It has been this way for a long time. Either everyone has the right to privacy, or no one does. And as it is now, no one does. Get pulled over and say or do something stupid? Well you just might end up on real TV.

Ok..if the policeman is being filmed for the purpose of how he is responding to protecting and serving the public , that is an entirely different motivation. Are you sure he saw the fight,and chose to ignore it? I didn't catch that watching it...so maybe I have missed something major here..lol

I think its important to keep public service men on their toes, and their performance in check, and if that makes them uncomfortable,too bad. But to just randomly video an officer is getting much in my estimation, and I can understand why he would feel harassed.
