I like the last line in jclv's link: He complains that citizens monitoring police activities for wrongdoing might "affect how an officer does his job on the street."
That is the exact reason for filming police on the job - to ensure that they are doing their job properly.

This guy is going to get rich. He already got $25K from a previous incident. I think he has a good case to claim that $25K didn't teach them anything, so this time, it ought to be $250K. Then if they do it again, make it $2.5M.

They only right the cop had to ask him for is ID is the fact that he (I assume) was in the driver seat of a vehicle, thus he needs a license. If he were standing in the street and hadn't been driving, the cop had no right to ask for his ID.
