Watch: LAPD deputy snatches woman's cellphone - One News Page VIDEO
More over the top actions by police who somehow believe they are above the law.
Note: The way she's holding the device and the loudness of the smash on the ground leads me to suspect it wasn't a cell phone, but as Today as reported a "camera".
That cop was out of line, imo. That said, there's an app created for just such situations called "MobileJustice" that automatically sends the video to the ACLU. But it also locates other MobileJustice app users in the area so they can record the police actions, too.

Interesting that the woman filming was herself being filmed.
