Actualy there is something as portrait right, i don't know if the states have it and or which states. but it means that even if they film you in a public location you have the right to refuse to be filmed or photographed at which point they no longer can use any footage of you, my photo was taken for a news paper article once, and they had to drop it. (i was just out walkind the dog, they were doing a piece about that park or smth)

Awsome cop btw.

HalfPintRoo What if?: Someone DID want to be filmed, DID want the flyer and DID want to be on the internet, but they couldn't because the people attempting to inform others about this weren't there because they didn't want to offend you or your right to privacy.

Who has more rights? You?? Them??

If you want privacy stay home. If you are in public anyone can see you and they just might see you in person or on the internet. Remember that next time you go out. Disguise yourself if necessary or become a hermit and recluse.

I love how we have great cops in this world that take the time to get it right and WASTE THEIR TIME OVER PETTY SQUABBLES SO SOME GODDAMNED TRUST FUND KIDS CAN HAND OUT A FLYER!!!

@HalfPintRoo
In the U.S., it is legal to photograph or videotape anything and anyone on public property. If that bothers you, stay home.

HalfPintRoo I'm not entirely sure (as a citizen of the UK) but I'm sure if you were to approach the people filming and ask to not take part in the video or have your face shown they would have blocked it (like the men at 12:32). I'm not sure if this is a law or just general common decency but I have found that if someone ever complains their face can and has always been blurred in everything like this I have seen.

by the way, I was NOT in this video, they clearly cut that part out (good on them) and were only showing people who took the flyer.

But I still want to know why they can film people and put them on the internet without their permission.

Like people of walmart (is that site still going?)

It' s not right that those taking the picture of someone to post on the internet just to mock them (bully them) has more rights then the person who is in the picture.

I was flying out while this was happening and I have to tell you, I didn't want to be filmed, I didn't want the flyer and I didn't want to be on the internet.

I've had my fair share of "we are allowed to film in a public place we are doing nothing wrong" and it happens all over NYS. At what point is there a line drawn?

Ok, so I'm filmed on surveillance cameras, security cameras, etc. They don't bother me, they don't end up on the internet.

Being filmed by douche bags with their agenda that may or may not go viral with my face in it... when is that crossing the line.

I know I'm going to get major hate from most all of you here and I am all for their rights and what not, but I'm just asking a serious question. When is it crossing the line?????

Cameraman and Flyer girl seem like douchey hippies.
Airport man sounds like a douche.
Deputy Stan seems like a stand up guy!

After a bit of reading, I found that:
1) Apparently in the US courts have upheld that if you even place your bags on the x-ray conveyor that you've implicitly agreed to be searched and CANNOT revoke consent (unlike Canada).
2) Airports in the US don't really go by the same free speech rules as in the rest of the US. As soon as you walk in the terminal your free speech counts for very little.

So maybe the airport guys were right here, but they are being dicks about it.

they are clearly not interested in giving people information.. they are interested in being famous.. see how that woman is flirting with the camera? She just wants to bug people for the sake of bugging people on the off-chance that something happens and they can be in the news..

how is that free speech if they are on an airport that is obviously someone's property. Free speech is only protected in public, not on an airport, not in your office.

My point is that it shouldn't be a special occasion. It should happen every time.

Zombunny "No one "deserves a medal" for defending free speech."

I disagree, everyone deserves a medal for defending freedoms.

Good point made, Good for the Deputy. But I would much rather have that time back to maybe go take a shat so I don't be late for my appointment. Now I gotta go to the bathroom.

How else are we supposed to change our law enforcement culture, Zombunny? I agree that it is sad, but the popo are typically rewarded with a mandatory paid vacation when they royally muss up.

These are the cases where you see how important it is to have informed, professional law enforcement.

No one "deserves a medal" for defending free speech. It's his job. How sad is it that we feel the need to applaud and hand out cookies when a cop actually upholds the constitution like he's supposed to?

Most of what Alex Jones puts out is pure paranoid tinfoil hat crap, but this was actually pretty awesome, and so is that sheriff.
