Seems it's illegal to record police doing whatever they do. It's even illegal to try and prove you did stop at the sign/light after getting a ticket. They one guy is up for 16 years. If you see police activity DO NOT get your camera/phone out. They will take it from you if not arrest you too.

If you watch the next youtube video there is a news report that the Graber case was thrown out of court.

Judge says man within rights to record police traffic stop

Charges alleging wire tap violation thrown out


September 27, 2010|By Peter Hermann, The Baltimore Sun
In a decision that could make it easier for citizens to record police officers in Maryland, a Harford County judge ruled Monday that state police and prosecutors were wrong to arrest and charge a man for taping his own traffic stop and posting it on the Internet.

Circuit Court Judge Emory A. Plitt Jr.'s ruling helps clarify the state's wire tap law and makes it clear that police officers enjoy little expectation of privacy as they perform their duties.

Good, I agree with the judge.

As do I.

Why would a LEO think he has an expectation of privacy when out in public view?

Just an example of MD over stepping their authority. Judge threw it out just as it should have been. There are always a few bad apples. Hopefully they get thrown out before they poison the rest.

In South Florida the doughnut munchers will beat the living daylight out of you if you try to videotape any confrontation or arrest process. Especially the City of Miami and City of Miami Beach public servants - those who "serve and protect". After they beat you up they take your phone or camera and either destroy it or just hide it. A number of stories in the paper about it...........Powleece Chiefs and Internal Investigation do nothing about it even after someone filmed the beating of the video taping person and his girl friend. Last I read, the worst that happned was a three day suspension - to be made up later with a week of overtime pay of course.

If anyone out there thinks that just because someone is a LEO he/she is above reproach, you're just kidding yourself. There are some absolute "pieces of crap" in every profession; form priest, to judge, to police officer, to cowboy, whatever...no profession is immune.

You are so right. However, the exception and the difference is when the dirtbags are on the public payroll and are supposed to "serve and protect" the public (not themselves or their perks or coverup for each other). In South Florida there is a systemic ongoing retaliation against persons reporting police misconduct.
