Over Memorial Day weekend this past May, residents of Miami Beach witnessed a horrific display of police brutality as 12 cops sprayed Raymond Herisse's car with 100 bullets, killing him. The shooting provoked outrage in the surrounding community, not only because of the murder, but because of what the police did afterward.

***Sorry, i jumped the gun a bit. So apparently the man isn't being charged (misleading title), but the article is pointing out how people in 12 states COULD be arrested for such a thing. My Mistake ***
I'm sure many of you recall the article posted a few weeks back which contained a video a Miami Citizen had uploaded (with the cops shooting up a car, then scaring off citizens.) Apparently this is illegal. :/
Personally, i think the man was brave and quick on his feet for hiding the sim card. This makes me wonder if someone could/will eventually set up some sort of mainstream recording/upload site, so that videos recorded on your phone could be uploaded, live, to your account, and thus saving possibly damning footage from being confiscated.
*edit* : Typos. Also, I don't want this to be a police-bashing thread. For every crooked cop exposed, there are 5 good cops that will never catch the public eye.
