Angry Now in MA, MD, and IL, it is illegal to record on duty police officers

This is insane, a public servant is able to arrest a citizen for recording, not obstructing, but just recording an arrest or anything related to an on duty police officer. I'm from MA and I am extremely outraged!

1) PP already did this
2) you cited/quoted nothing of value
3) You smell bad and that's why you're not getting laid

Aim the camera so the cop is on the side of the view.

I wonder what their reasoning is behind passing this. I can't think of a feasible reason.

I'd just record as normal and not tell them. That is now illegal, but what they don't know won't hurt them....until they powertrip and it is caught and given to all the local media to rip them to shreds.

I missed the first thread on this I guess.

Bunch of BS. I'm sure there are quite a few police officers who don't agree with this.

The only cops and judges who support this are the ones who are afraid of being caught. AKA organized crime, dishonest, corrupt, or otherwise have something to hide.

The ACLU is all over this, and I doubt it lasts. In the meanwhile, when you record, be covert about it.

Agreed.

I am by no means a FTP kind fo person, but lines need to be drawn and this is one I think everyone should (and probably will) take. I trust the ideals of law enforcement, I just don't trust human error and abuse in enforcing them.

In which case, if it is obvious abuse, the media will run with it. If you can't legally expose it, just find the next avenue to do it, and one that will be detrimental to the officer's career and the department who isn't keeping them in check. If they are afraid of being exposed maybe they shouldn't have don it in the first place.

Too many incidents of "I'll arrest you." "For what? I didn't do anything!" "For whatever reason I make up. You want me to ruin your life?" "PS Officer, you should know you're on camera right now." "..."

You're right, he should've just shot him and destroyed the tape.

Generally speaking I dislike the ACLU, but for a change I hope they win.

Right, while it may be annoying, it is completely illegal to detain someone for that.

And I absolutely respect people who join the military and put their lives on the line in wars (even if those wars are pointless), but I cannot abide the mentality that because they did so, that somehow elevates them above all other citizens.

"I didn't get shot at in the desert so that your fruity ass could take pictures of me!"

Well, actually, if you fought for the principles that this country was founded on, then that's exactly why you got shot at in the desert.

Right.

What I meant to say was to submit a request to subpoena the officers in-car and on-person video recording system and use it in court instead.

You do, of course, know that many cops now have on-person video recording systems. The cops, of course, won't give them up easily when requested, but as proven before experts can recover video that has been deleted, much to the chagrin of the police.
