Personally, I support the rights of individuals to video any public official in the performance of their duties, whatever they may be. As long as the individual does not interfere with those duties nor incites others to interfere in those duties, no harm is done and often great benefit can accrue. The case in South Carolina is a case in point. Without the citizen video, the dishonest actions of the officer would never have come to light or be believed. While the officer's dash cam shows how the incident originated and how the dead victim bolted from his car and ran away, it does not show the end result. If only the dash cam was available, the officer would have a good case and ability to rationalize his actions. I don't know the rules of engagement in all jurisdictions, but in many a fleeing suspect may be brought down with force. If not for the citizen's video, we wouldn't know that the officer tried to plant evidence -placing his taser beside the body of the victim - and his story may have been believed.
