Did you guys hear about this one college student who video taped a police officer being agressive with another student and he got arrested for it and google.com bailed him out of jail. The news feed is on youtube at this link... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBGObekclRg
Excuse me officer, I need to record this. By the way isn't there a upper weight limit to be on the police force? DUH.
Yep, Nick--my take on this is cops should use these recordings to supplement/corroborate their own. The more the merrier. I do agree with DL, though, that slapping "ACLU" on it is probably not the greatest idea--it's not likely to win you any points with LEOs if discovered. Courtesy (mutual) goes a long way toward reducing the tension in any LEO/civilian interaction. (Speaking from a civilian perspective, of course.)
DL - This is an app that allows people to surreptitiously record encounters with LEOs without the LEO's knowledge. Now, most of these encounters will undoubtedly show the officers acting in a responsible and professional manner, there will be an over reaction and increase in IA reports when these nimrods think they have a complaint when, in reality, they do not.
I thought we already had the technology to record via video, voice, and pictures. What's new about this? Other than the ACLU is putting their stamp on it. Things look so much uglier with their name on it.
Unreal ... was not able to open the link ... so just the same, we have recording devices just the same
Bump DL and Chief. No problem, good cops will get that app too! Welcome to technology!
Ditto Donna Lynn.
I'm not even wasting my time reading the article.
Aha!The A.C.L.U.(American Communist Lunatics Unhinged)is again performing their usual"We Hate Cops" song and dance routine.What a surprise.
I believe there is a place for the ACLU. That place would be a lunar colony.
