Why didn't the rest of the bikers stop and beat this cop`s ass on the side of the road?

Figure that out and you will know why the cops keep doing this crap.

"its called REASONABLE SUSPICION. cam are use by gang members so he could be a gang member for having a cam"

Are you going to suggest that every CNN van with a camera mounted on the roof or close to any window is a crip drive by wagon just waiting to be called into action?

You have to be a world class cretin to not recognise that the police officer was completely in the wrong by: Suggesting he can take possession of private property without reasonable cause.

Driving on the highway under ths speedlimit is not probable cause. Driving a motorcycle is not probable cause. By that definition, every black, white or hispanic person in the US should always be stopped for just about everything because someone with their particular skintone once killed a guy.

Do you European immigrants currently residing in the USA have any sense of self respect left?

DM: Your walking a very very fine line. That's like saying that every kid who has a cell phone may potentially be carrying video footage of his friends committing a minor crime, so therefore all teenagers cell phones should be screened for video evidence. It`s ridiculous.

Reasonable suspicion usually applies only when a crime has been committed and a person matches the description or a person is acting out of the ordinary. It is not to be used to take away the rights of citizens to be unlawfully searched without a warrant. And you`re doing exactly what Macgruffin did, you`re assuming that that the cop has a right to stop the person for his camera. That individual can deny the cop the right to search his property without a warrant, which means the inital arrest to GET the camera was unlawful. So before you start throwing out precendents, first understand the crime being committed. Heres a hint, there wasn`t one in this case.

"(1) the consensual
encounter, which may be initiated without any objective level of suspicion; (2) the
investigative detention, which, if non-consensual, must be supported by a reasonable,
articulable suspicion of criminal activity; and (3) the arrest, valid only if supported by
probable cause." United States v. Smith, 594 F.3d 530, 535 (6th Cir. 2010) (quoting
United States v. Waldon, 206 F.3d 597, 602 (6th Cir. 2000)).iii

biker targeted for the camera, cop even said so.
Cop makes up the excuse to arrest him.
"Partially covered plate" ? That's a ticketable thing, NOT an arrest thing.

This cop is a dick.
