What about a McDonald's employee? Should a McDonald's employee be allowed to confiscate and destroy someone's property because they don't like being filmed and sometimes their job is stressful?
    The very moment that Walmart greeters and McDonalds employees are called out on duty to arrest someone carrying a weapon, committing a crime, or threatening people, you might have a point. Until then, your comparison is asinine.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    Doesn't matter if they like it or not, if you have a situation where police are overly heavy handed in this time of record low crime, it is not just our right, but our duty to ask why? and to question the methods employed that end up with non violent suspects, dead.


    Or in this case, a clear example of assault by this jack boot, on an admittedly obnoxious acting civillian (which is not against the law)

    Do cops somehow not realize that people can upload everything they are recording live? This isn't the 1990's when you could smash a camera and be sure that all evidence of your wrong doing was destroyed.

    I'm a physicist, and of course I wouldn't want to be monitored. It's just that we already are. Big Brother don't care about profession. But when it comes to lethal government force against its own citizens, we need to be very careful and watchful with how it exercises that power to ensure everything is kept within proper and reasonable means.

    If Big Brother is good for the citizens, it's good for the Government.

    So every government employee who interacts with the public is videoed and the video is emailed off to CNN or whomever for viewing and critique on a regular basis?

    We have cameras every where, at almost every intersection, but the cops resist it on themselves or being filmed.

    CLose, it is archived and stored, and in the even of an incident, it can be pulled up and reviewewed.

    I simply point out, for what it's worth, that no sane person would volunteer to train and enter law enforcement these days due to the political/social climate. As such, your desire to weed out "jack boot" assaults through citizen video and blanket condemnation of all police whenever such a situation occurs, will only serve to weed good people out of the law enforcement ranks and challenge good people from even entering the field and you'll be left with the "jack booters" as the norm.

    Funny how you seldom see videos like this of jackasses getting arrested and what they do in the process.

    Sure. Politicians face that risk all the time. As do garbagemen, road construction crews, and postal workers among many others. All of whom voluntarily take their jobs.
