am i the only one who sees that these people are only recording the police to try and get a reaction?
why else would they be doing it?
i know people have the right to do pretty much whatever they want on their own property (within reason) but why make a video of the police?
i could understand it if something serious was happening, wether it be police brutality or a serious crime happening, but to record them just to get a reaction, and possibly try and get them into trouble because of that reaction, is just plain stupid.

What if that is the main reason? Police has to take it. Nobody hides, everybody will be exposed.

The police should not have reacted

I think you are wrong with that part of the statement.

I believe it should be Why NOT make a video of a public servant doing his job in front of your property. What's the big fear? I bet if there was a violent turn and cops got shot etc by the bad guys they would sure wish they had this tape.

Because it makes it hard for them to break the law.

As they say about cameras in society:

"If you are doing the right thing, you have nothing to worry about".

The police cant get away with treating people like that in the UK. But they try anyway. This video is very funny


Could someone describe an scenario what would happen if this man would speak to US policemen like this?
They'd probably be shot.

I salute the way Americans come together and stand up for truth in daunting times. There's still freedom in USA compared to the rest of the world.

The country I live in, Singapore, the authorities do not even need a warrant to raid a house. It's just the way we learn to live.

This is really great news to me. Before today I knew that cops beat you up and then secretly jailed you if you phographed them. Now I see that they only arrest you. We are moving forward! Oh, you guys didn't know that they beat you up when you photograph or evade?

I heard that Singapore has the death penalty for any illegal drugs. Is this true? In California they smoke pot in the open now. Often drugs are used as a way to gain access arrest people for other criminal activities. Now they will use photograpy as an excuse to search you.

The thread title is a lie, the woman repeatedly lied in the video, and the cops were being civil and humane.

You guys are really trying to poo poo the cops in this thread.

I'm all for calling out police brutality and whatnot, but this isn't a case I'd stand up for.


Eh?

So it's OK to hassle innocent people just because they remain legal yet annoying.

Ok.

Got it.

Annoying isn't illegal is it? I need to know, because that's my job.

And I sure as hell didn't sign any T&C when being born. I'd have refused to sign up if the first thing I heard was "OBEY MY ORDER OR ELSE NO MATTER WHAT" from god. And I sure as hell don't now from MAN.

baloney.

If I was her I would of have stood inside my house at the front door with it wide open continuing to video tape... or through an open _

Too bad she had to endure that. Some officers need to get off their pedestal. Stop with the "Us vs. Them" mentality.

I was all for the women until she started crying while being arrested. What a way to ruin a glorious act of civil disobedience. It was like she lost her backbone when the cuffs went on.

Regardless, I'm happy this film came to light. Cops haven't been public servants in years. Cops are nothing but tools. They are tools because they don't even realize how or why they are being used and brainwashed into thinking they are white knights doing right by the establishment by spitting on the serfs. They are under educated about the why's and over educated about the how's.

She was in her OWN yard, on HER property.

And look at all of his cop buddies just standing there.

Yea Im sure theres a "Good" cop in there somewhere right? You know, the ones who just stand and watch and do nothing.

no such thing as a good cop anymore.


I CANNOT STAR THIS POST ENOUGH!

If the world included more like you my friend, we'd be a lot better off.

At least you get it. sadly so many don't.

The title to this thread seems a bit misleading. The woman was not arrested for videotaping the police activity. She was arrested for refusing to go in her house as asked. The police did not say stop taping. He said he felt unsafe with her behind them and to go in her house. He did not go all out on her, he did not use force against her. He warned her more than once that she would be arrested for not doing as he said. Regardless if you feel that he shouldn't have told her that, he didn't arrest her for taping.

Considering all the negativity towards cops these days, I don't blame him for wanting to be cautious.

In reference to the fact that they let the guy go, perhaps there was no reason to arrest him, so they let him go.

That woman who was taping seemed to be looking for a problem so she could cry about it. If I were her, I would have went inside and inconspicuously continued to tape. Again, he didn't even make her turn off the camera or take it away from her.

Her mistake was when she says, "I'm just video taping you to watch what you guys are doing."

The lady should have replied, "Hi officers, can I get you some coffee and muffins? I'm just so proud of you fine men getting the riff-raff off the streets. On behalf of all us on this street: Thank you! Keep up the great work!"

Everyone has the ability to "frame" the social dynamics of any situation. When you frame yourself as a confronter of authority - you are actually demanding that authority confront you.

But if you frame yourself as a grateful supporter of authority - the demands come from within the authority to keep that support by being polite.

Either way, I still support what she was doing and feel that the officer was completely out of line and violated her rights by first ordering her how to move about on her own private property, and secondly by arresting her for not obeying an unlawful order (which was in truth really just a request).

If passive actions warrants police abuse, I say act. Act and show it.

And that is what you are seeing.

By christ, what crime is there? None. So sure, doing it to garner attention is a fallacy, but the reaction by the law enforcers is not.

I can damn video tape my empty street 24/7.. I DO.

and should a walloper wander by and accuse me of a crime, I will fight it.

I will indeed ENTICE it. to show the absolute twaddle that is being forced on us en masse.

If you disagree then we can only but agree to disagree.

Bull crap..... there are definitely still good cops.. That was completely ignorant to state. I am replying to what the both of you posters said. I have had bad and good experiences with cops and I know they aren't all bad. I also know other people who have had both good and bad experiences. The cops are not our enemies, corruption is.

Nah, I'll have to stand on my history and state that while some police are tolerant, they are far from good.

I have yet to meet a cop I'd share a good hearted conversation with - they are entirely within a single mindset, and it is not far removed from this.

Unless you mean a good cop who smiles as he arrests you for nothing.

Im no spring chicken either. I have had my share of interaction. Usually resulting in myself being treated as common scum, while I have actively tried to be civil.

Nup, it's a gang. Not unlike any other. Except these members are not 1%. they are indeed 100% above the law that they enforce.

The day I meet a police officer in Western Australia who has a heart and a soul, and does their job without malice... then I will eat my tin foil hat.

Sadly, I have very little hat, and a large distrust.

The LEO didn't have to react at all. He could have respected the woman for recording the actions of Public servants, paid by taxpayers. I record LEOs all the time. Usually connected with a heroic deed, above the call of duty by the cops or in training videos. They want this documented but when they have something to hide or not following protocol, expect to be hassled and/or arrested.

I have learned...never be obvious when recording, never appear in a threatening mode, use a very small 1080p device and know how to eject the SD card in a second in case your camera is confiscated and invest in a very good, high quality zoom lens.

Become a documentary film maker/producer/director. Take a producers class at your local public access TV channel and become certified. Register with the state and get an LLC. Apply for New Media Status with SAG.
It's fun and if you get some exciting footage you can make a lot of money!! Get a scanner and cover stories that the big stations and their cumbersome gear ignore and SELL them your video; Also Law and insurance firms will by your film. Human interest, corruption, heroism, disasters, car wrecks, celebrities....are you a paparazzi? yep!!

Know your rights and contact a lawyer to represent you in case of trouble and have his # on speed dial on your cell phone.

Streaming Video is the wave of the future. DOCUMENT YOUR WORLD.... plenty of people want to see it.
