Thread: You legally can not record cops on video.

  1. #1

    Default You legally can not record cops on video.

    Well at least in 3 states right now, which I know some of you live in.

    Seriously.. i'm not even sure what to say about such bullshit. Why it should be illegal to film any cop, FBI agent, DEA agent, etc in a public place is beyond me.

    Hey, this law is completely fair.

    We're not allowed to show people the kind of bullshit cops do on duty and in return, we get hit in the face with a nightstick because they felt like it.

    I agree that a private citizen should have
    the right to say no to being video/audio recorded, however, if you are
    acting as an agent of law enforcement, then I don't consider you a
    private citizen and as a public servant (again, in on-duty scenarios)
    you do not have that right to privacy. In my opinion, it is a checks...
    and balance system of keeping law enforcement agents in line...you're
    going to be more careful if you don't know who is or when you are being
    recorded. Does this mean cops have to get citizens permission to record them on their dashboard cams?

    I noticed Maryland is one of these and we have some of the shittiest cops(Especially in my town). I am not surprised at such legislature in this state because every time a video incriminating a cop appears the cops get off free. This is a dumb law, but probably won't become law in many states.

    So, does this mean if a couple of cops are videotaped unlawfully beating the crap out of someone, that the videotape evidence will be thrown out of court?

    I think it means that whoever took the video could be taken to court...

    I'd like to see this law stand the test in The Supreme Court, though with some of our very conservative members, one has to wonder.

    Even before this cops couldn't be convicted even with video tape for that kind of thing, at least not here in Maryland from what I know. My question is what about surveillance footage from like a store or even off a house would that count?
