Is it true that in some states it is still against the law to record the police? Or did the Supreme Court overrule that?

When law abiding citizens see these videos pop up online almost on a daily basis, how can people act all surprised when someone like Christopher Dorner gets the support he did. Supporting Dorner is sick yes, but people are BOMBARDED with police misconduct videos and it is really wearing on peoples ability to sympathize with the police.

re: #2 Dr. Matt

No! Anyone and everything is legal to photograph from public areas. There have been a bunch of court rulings this way at various levels. The police literally refuse to comply. The attitude and unspoken policy is do what you want, the courts will sort it out.

After all when charges are dropped all is well right? Well, unless you don’t like taking a beating, having your gear wrecked and going to the hospital then jail. ///

Steroids betcha. Cops down here especially on the mission beach boardwalk are itching for trouble. Smoking not enough of crime stopping for them.

Thanks for posting.

The camera was going to steal that cop’s soul.

Another foray into the world of “You may beat the rap, but you won’t beat the ride”

In other words, the cop doesn’t give a shit the he is making a false arrest. He is going to make sure you are humiliated, bleeding, bruised and know that he has his boot on your neck and handcuffs on your wrists because you did not show the proper obsequiousness.

re: #5 Dr. Matt

An interesting nuance-Recording voices is an issue in some ways. ever notice security cams are video only? But video and still photography/imaging is as legal as walking in public. Some cops try to use the audio portion of a recording as somehow chargeable, a trick even tried by a prosecutor or two. However, not successfully not for long.

The ACLU has a ton of good info on their national page.
