I'll admit... I did see one video where the "sidewalk lawyer" got to join the perp for a ride downtown... and I enjoyed it.

Kid was mouthing off to the officer and telling the suspect that he did not need to cooperate with the officer.

Now... technically he was right... but we certainly was not the guys attorney and were I the officer, I'd have felt threatened "enough" to arrest him as well.

On the flip side... I've seen several when the officer is acting WAY to aggressive toward a citizen... bordering on abuse and intimidation... IMMEDIATELY change his demeanor when he realizes cameras are present... which tells me the guy who really needs to be filmed constantly... knows darn well how to turn off his equipment... and get away with it.

Sunshine really is the best "disinfectant".

I don't have a problems with people recording. I have long grew tired of the YouTube commandos looking for their 15 minutes. Dumbassery is what it is. Recording it only brings proof and food for the all cops are evil set. Now if they actually catch an officer getting out of line that is not intrusion, that is evidence.

Cell cams are everywhere now days. Everyone including LEO just need to get used to it. I don't like traffic cams but am told that if I'm doing nothing wrong then I should be OK with it. That should work both ways...

Tack,

I think that's a pretty good idea.

Given that police officers are human and will do what is in their interest to do, it's nice to have an outside observer that can only observe and record what happened.

I also think a camera can't convey the totality of a situation.

I am of the opinion that everything the government does should be recorded in one way or another.

I think maybe we all need to take a deep breath and get out our dictionary and look up "paranoid."

What he said. 99.9% of encounters are recorded anyways. Idc just know your place don't over step the boundaries. Most of the guys on YouTube are just editing to favor there view; as well if you look for trouble long enough it will find you.

Mouthing off is not illegal. Arresting someone for being mean to a LEO is pure and simple constitutional violation.

A local dept used to have dash cams... until their dash cam caught the officer violating constitutional rights... all the dash cams mysteriously were taken out as the technology wasn't "stable".

There are a lot of video gaps when an officer does something wrong. Courts have accepted the officers "word" when video cameras suddenly have recording issues.
