I came away with 2 thoughts........why do the riders have better cameras then the LEOs? The other, If the kid had not acted like a little bitch he prolly would not have got carted off.

I disagree with the group of them shutting down the highway and doing all the bs. But I don't think the cop pulled over the right bike.

Further, I'd lawyer up and not allow them to use my camera footage just because he arrested me over some bs.

Wouldn't want to catch the officers doing bad things in hi-def, might make it easier to nail them for corruption and abuse

It was ruled in some court case somewhere that cops have no choice when being filmed. they are public officers and can't object to such filming.

They may not like it but keep it rolling. They are in a public arena and can expect no privacy. Same as the average citizen.
Some local municipalities have tried to enact their own laws regarding this but when push comes to shove they loose.
Now if you are asked to turn it off you have to decide for yourself how much you want to piss the officer off. It can get ugly.

Bottom line is that cops can't stop you from filming them unless they want a legal fight.

The cops will loose in court but the problem with our legal system is it will cost you a shit load $$ to get there.:yes:

guys on the bike in the first vid were total and complete assholes. that guy had no right to be acting as a rolling road block. then the girl passed off something which the guy then jocked and quickly sped off. then one of the fools came back the wrong way on the highway and picked up the girl and sped off again. what the hell is that? looks very suspicious to me.
The second vid was some punk ass kid acting like a roadside lawyer and then when shit got real for the plate he bitched up. DUMB DUMB DUMB. you know your wrong when you put that style plate holder on there. the stock one sits out there like a soar thumb for a reason; so that its clearly visible. if he had been cool and relaxed and pulled over like a decent human being he probably would have been let off with a warning or worse case scenario a fix-it ticket. just seems to me that when some people get pulled over instead of being humble and giving the cops what they want they try to be bigger than they are and always seem to get slapped down with the pimp hand of the law.
As for filming of cops, its called the 1st Ammendment. Deal with it. You are being filmed, be on your best most polite behavior, and you will be just fine. Ask them to turn it off and your are liable for a severe case of the rights violations lawyers crawling up your butt worse than a colonoscopy.

Moral of the story, don't be a jack ass either side of the law.

I believe some judges have called it a form of wiretapping, for some reason Maryland comes to mind. If my camera is running I'm leaving it on but I sure as hell wouldn't stick it in his face. Of course I've NEVER had a problem with the law.
