Re-entry is a &!^%#

Default This cop is lucky to be alive.

Cop jumps out of unmarked car (no not a crown vic either) in plain clothes, gun in hand and charges at a guy on a running motorcycle yelling at him to get off his bike WITHOUT IDENTIFYING HIMSELF AS A POLICE OFFICER AND WITHOUT A BADGE DISPLAYED. The police then charge motorcyclist for illegally recording police officer serve him with a search warrant and confiscate all his computer equipment, etc.

Quote:
A Harford County man now faces up to five years in prison after he recorded a bizarre traffic stop last month in Harford County.

Anthony Graber was riding his motorcycle with a camera attached to his helmet recording his ride.

It happened near the Riverside exit of I-95. A Maryland State trooper in an unmarked car pulled over Graber for speeding. The trooper is seen in a YouTube video that Graber posted, jumping out of the car and tells Graber "Get off the motorcycle, get off the motorcycle! Get off the motor cycle, State Police."

The trooper is seen pulling his gun immediately after getting out of the unmarked car. It's not until five seconds after he exits the car that he identifies himself a Maryland State trooper.

How is the cop lucky? I think the bike guy is lucky? So, I don't see the problem here. Cops do that all the time.

Cops come at people with guns drawn without identifying themselves all the time? Where do you live, south central?

You can, hence the reason the charges have been dropped.

Bike is in gear with his hand on the clutch. If someone jumps out of their car immediately reaching for a gun and I'm on a bike you better believe I would be running them the **** over mad max style.

Nope, I'm actually from the great state of Texas and just in Alabama for an "asignment" doing DOD stuff.

Saw that many of times down in Galveston on any given spring or summer weekend when they would have soem big bike thing. Troopers, sherifs, cops, whatever, didn't hesitate to do stuff like that. There use do to be some good vids on youtube of that kind of thing all from Texas but they've seem to have been taken down.

They step back onto the shoulder when you get close just keep going they won't chase. This isn't allowed any more because too many officers were hit and killed while doing this.

Any cops on here can verify... it's illegal to videotape an officer in public without his/her permission?

There was also a marked car behind him as well, and you can see him looking in his mirror multiple times before the cop pulls him over.

the law is being misrepresented here as well;

here is the actual law for recording in MD:




Under Maryland’s Wiretapping and Electronic Surveillance Act, it is unlawful to tape record a conversation without the permission of all the parties. See Bodoy v. North Arundel Hosp., 945 F.Supp. 890 (D. Md. 1996). Additionally, recording with criminal or tortuous purpose is illegal, regardless of consent. Md. Code Ann., Cts. & Jud. Proc. 10-402.

Disclosing the contents of intercepted communications with reason to know they were obtained unlawfully is a crime as well.

Violations of the law are felonies punishable by imprisonment for not more than five years and a fine of not more than $10,000. Civil liability for violations can include the greater of actual damages, $100 a day for each day of violation or $1,000, along with punitive damages, attorney fees and litigation costs. To recover civil damages, however, a plaintiff must prove that the defendant knew it was illegal to tape the communication without consent from all participants. MD. Code Ann., Cts. & Jud. Proc. 10-410.

State courts have interpreted the laws to protect communications only when the parties have a reasonable expectation of privacy, and thus, where a person in a private apartment was speaking so loudly that residents of an adjoining apartment could hear without any sound enhancing device, recording without the speaker’s consent did not violate the wiretapping law. Malpas v. Maryland, 695 A.2d 588 (Md. Ct. Spec. App. 1997); see also Benford v. American Broadcasting Co., 649 F. Supp. 9 (D. Md. 1986) (salesman’s presentation in stranger’s home not assumed to carry expectation of privacy).

The Court of Special Appeals of Maryland held that because states are at liberty to adopt more restrictive provisions than those contained in federal law, the secretary-treasurer of a local union who recorded conversations between himself and management representatives could still be prosecuted under the state statute, even if his conduct was arguably protected under the National Labor Relations Act. Petric v. State, 504 A.2d 1168 (Md. Ct. Spec. App. 1986).

It is a misdemeanor to use a hidden camera in a bathroom or dressing room. It is also a misdemeanor to use a hidden camera on private property “for purposes of conducting deliberate, surreptitious observation of a person inside the private residence,” or in a private place with “prurient intent.” Md. Crim. Law 3-901, -902, -903. A person who is viewed in violation of these statutes has a civil cause of action. The court may award actual damages and reasonable attorney fees. A person who violates this section is guilty of a misdemeanor and on conviction is subject to imprisonment not exceeding one year or a fine not exceeding $2,500 or both.

Yeah, I see him looking in his mirrors, but when he turns around you only see the impala behind him, not a marked car. The unmarked car probably radioed the marked car.

So, should I be the one to point out that the idiot was stuntin' on the highway, and that's why pissed-off off-duty cop came after him?

(not justifying drawing his gun. Just sayin'.)
