    On the other hand, video taping a police officer and getting in their way while they are trying to do their duties SHOULD be arrestable... not because of the video taping, but because you are getting in their way.
    That's one thing I respect about you Caine.....you are a cop with perspective and not one that believes in the "code of silence" from what I can tell.

    i think it should be illegal to video tape cops, they are doing whatever they can to catch criminals, and so what if it is illegal, it has to be done for the greater good.

    I support brutal beatings and strict and harsh sentences for those who would DARE even take a picture of ANY cop with even a 30-year-old camera!!!

    Re: Should Videotaping the Police Really Be a Crime?

    Why not just make suing the police illegal? I mean, if they're making it illegal to obtain direct evidence, then there's no point in taking them to court anymore.

    And yes, it's true, police dashboard cams are usually running, but they don't capture the full story, especially if you walk off camera. There are plenty of police that patrol the streets without cars too.

    They are here to serve us, and we monitor THEM. That is how this system works. We check their power. We police the police, and obtain video evidence at our discretion.

    The conservatives in Canada are trying to make it illegal to video tape officers too. It's now being called assault. Once the U.S. started doing it, the Canadian police started doing it. (Our police forces are often in exchange to trade skills and training.) I don't know how they can make such a law when clearly the majority of the public is against it.

    It should 100% absolutely be legal to videotape the police while they are on duty. Police officers should have nothing to hide, while on duty.

    It should absolutely be legal to videotape police when they're on the job in public. There is no expectation of privacy in that situation.

    No problem, just figured I would add some other then "I concur I concur as well, I agree with that guy." I agree with all of you, but cops definately have a pretty sweet deal...at least the ones where crime is a non-issue thing and the most they do in a month has to do with traffic stops. I know in more dangerous cities they have a tough job, like say Cincinnati, OH an hour from me but where I am in Brooksville, KY? It's like the Andy Griffith Show.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Well, that's just about EGZAKLY what the Maryland Attorney General said about this case. "The Maryland Attorney General has released an opinion advising a state legislator that, contrary to the claims of Harford County State’s Attorney Joseph Cassilly, a traffic stop is probably not an instance where a police officer can claim a reasonable expectation of privacy." Maryland Attorney General Sides with Anthony Graber | Cato @ Liberty

    HOWEVER, the trial is still going forward in October. Whaaaat???????!!!!!!

    Without actually going forward with the case and bringing it before a judge they can't set a judicial precedence for the law being unconstitutional. Have to run it through the courts and let a judge set a precedence for this law being bad this way it becomes official.
