Around here, if cops catch you taking pics at a wreck scene, they "confiscate" your phone or camera. They claim that the pictures you took are now "evidence". Being a volunteer firefighter, I`ve seen it happen more than once. Just wrong, but it happens. Word has gotten around, and you don`t see many people taking pics at wreck scenes around here anymore.

Nobody else spotted this?

The guy who yelled "turn the camera off" was the man standing next to the truck, probably the driver. The none of the cops there (that you can see in the video) are even looking at the car/camera when that gets yelled.

And yes, while the guy has the right to record the scene, can you blame the guy for being upset? If you were standing on the side of the road with your vehicle completely destroyed and you saw people driving by recording you, you might be a little mad too. Not necessarily because you`re being filmed, but because of the entire situation.

On a final note, the cameraman is such a badass. I can say "No, ___ you" to politicians when I don`t like when they say something I don`t like, but does that mean I`ve "found a way to deal with them"?

Wow. I`m so impressed with how he "confronted" the police while riding by an accident scene without stopping and yelling out the window. This is the lamest video I`ve seen in a while.

@Gerry, most people forget that privacy gets left behind when you walk out the door. I`ve had co-workers tell me that pictures of them taken at wreck scenes are a violation of their privacy. Sorry, when you work in the public, for the public, any expectation is quickly forgotten.

The moment you step out your door you have no expectation of privacy. The news crews can film you in an accident, and so can I. Walking down the street I can film you, doesn`t matter.

TV shows sometimes blur people out so they don`t have to give them any compensation for a Television Appearance. But that`s not because you have privacy.

why not? He yelled at him to turn the camera off for no reason.

[quote]he is totally right to tell him to put the camera away..this is an accident[/quote]

and it`s not illegal to film it

[quote]there might be people hurt and the officer is protecting them. you have no right to film private people who don`t want to be filmed in a situation where they have no influence on what happens.[/quote]

they`re in public so yes you do have that right

[quote]tried to be cool but ultimately turned out to be a jerk[/quote]

He`s a jerk for getting annoyed at a cop yelling at him for no reason?

[quote]like most of the "I`m gonna film the police just to annoy them" people[/quote]

all he was doing was recording the scene. the cop decided to be "cool" by trying to flex his non existent authority
