    It doesn’t seem to be a problem in Sweden.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

I would go so far as to say the police and DA who try to arrest people and try them for this crime should all be fired and barred from ever again holding a position of public office or duty.
    I am as conservative as they come, with TWO family members in law enforcement, and there is no way on this earth that it can possibly be argued that unless the cops are undercover and risk danger, like in a drug buy scenario, that it should be anything but legal to videotape people on the public payroll.

    The attorney general Shipley in that video will be receiving a phone call from my office, and i will even donate to an org I totally despise, the ACLU, to fund an operation attacking any state or municipality with laws akin to MDs.

    It's totally unfair that a private citizen should bear the cost of a trial on such an obviously bogus charge. The tape clearly shows a guy in street clothes leaping out of a car with a gun in his hand. He's lucky the guy on the bike didn't gun it and run him over trying to save his own life.

    Everything about this case just stinks to high heaven.

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.
    Yeah and two of my cop buddies just got shot last week. You're welcome to your opinion but I know better. These guys work their ass off for a thankless job, shamefully underpaid, and have to put up with the ungrateful receipents of their unselfish efforts, such as yourself, all the while holding their tongue.

    There are a LOT sweeter deals out there to be had.

    They're on the job; they're public servants.
    Their job is to serve the public. They are ultimately accountable to the public.
    It never has and never will be a violation of anything, for an employer to videotape his or her employees on the job in a public place in order to ensure that they're doing their jobs properly.

    They videotape everybody else with their dashboard cams.
    It's ridiculous to say, "I can videotape you during our encounter, but it's against the law for you to videotape me."

    It's interesting that wire tapping laws are cited with video taping police, when in those same laws it requires all parties to be notified that they are being phone tapped in order to give them the opportunity to place their own recording devices for the sake of consistent evidence. This of course doesn't count for discreet investigations, and then it requires a warrant.

    Are police obtaining a warrant everytime they video tape me from their cop car? I didn't think so. They're out in public, and they serve the public.

    ****, with the kind of agreement on this issue demonstrated in this thread, we ought to take it to the next level and form an advocacy group and go public.

    HAHAHAHA.... Reminds me of some **** we did once when the news showed up at a minor crash scene with no injuries for some reason....
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
