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.
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.
