    The intent of videotaping police officers is not because you feel the love for them..lol..please man ive been around too long....
    Too many times the person taking the video conveniently doesnt video THE ENTIRE INCIDENT..and thats why so many of these taping resulit in no disciplinary or charges whatsover.....

    There are thousands upon thousands of police officers on duty at any minute of any day anywhere. Police Officer deaths have been rising dramatically...Officer deaths increased 37% in 2010 are increasing over that so far this year.
    Im going to cut this short because to be honest...cops dont care if you like them or not...the hugs they get from the people they help and save and their loved ones more than comepensates for the police bashers that see the miniscule amount of police actions gone wrong in the media.
    A large city precinct can have hundreds of calls an hour every day of the week...they get no thanks for the lionshare of those events, many of which threaten their well being, and cop haters want to make big hay over the one incident that finally hits the papers.....shrug, we dont care.
    If the day ever comes that YOU or yours really really need a cop and you call...and they dont come...video that.
    Cop haters? Is that what people are who have written posts in favor of the continued legality of videoing cops doing their jobs?

    If they are really protecting the public, then they should applaud videos of them doing their duty. They should be happy when a video of them rescuing an elderly woman from a potential mugger goes viral on U Tube.

    Why would the police have any more expectation of privacy while on public streets than any of the rest of us have?

    Just to add, I think that if a cop knows he/she’s being filmed, there will be a greater degree of hesitation in taking aggressive action when he/she believes either themselves or others are in danger.

    Whether or not this is a good thing, I suppose could be debatable.

    However under the assumption that cops are mostly good, upstanding citizens, I think the videotaping will add no benefit and will maybe hamper a police officer’s ability to act effectively in those split-second life or death decision situations.

    Most excellent news.

    Any public servant performing his duties in a public place should be subject to being filmed by the public.... this is one means of keeping them honest.

    Any other position is outright Police-Statism.

    I am an ex-cop and I endorse this ruling.

    I can't speak for others, but my intent would be to ensure that my rights and/or the rights of others would be protected. There is nothing wrong with that. Without the right to record by the citizenry, rogue or badly disciplined cops could easily get away with violating the rights of citizens.

    I'm a big supporter of law enforcement. There has been quite a few cases like this lately. Not even groups I support can be allowed to ignore our Constitutional rights.

    Nor should they in that case. We really haven't discussed this part of the equation IMO. The discussion is around the idea that the police can't hassle, arrest or confine you for filming their actions in the vast majority of cases.

    Absolutely. A recording can protect an officer as well as condemn.
