where i I'm from they are just now discovering that there is a big steroid problem in the police gyms. This They found is because the anti doping thingy does/did not got to these gyms, you guessed it, because they believed that police are saints.
I wonder if this is an issue in many other parts of the world? It looks to me like this could be a episode of riod rage...

Which states? Only one I think, and not California. Can't arrest someone for something that would be a crime in Illinois!

I'd like to weigh in on this topic...
First, cops are civil servants. They are not military as much as they'd like to think they are. They are citizens. Yes, I have the right to film them.
I'm honestly scared for the future of my country. Born a proud American, there's one thing I know we all knew without having to do any research at all: That cop did not receive any punishment. He assaulted someone who did not break the law, and he did not get fired, thrown in jail, etc.
Also, the excuses cops are coming up with to physically assault someone are now out of hand. Cops are using the same line-blurring tactics that dirty lawyers use to claim mental incompetence when avoiding a sentence. Why isn't this a bigger deal??

It's pretty clear that some guys are cruisin' for a bruisin' by the cops, but on the other hand, the police have to wake up to the 21st century and realize that video cameras are everywhere and they can't throw their weight around without repercussions forever. It's about time.

aroc91: Why haven't I heard of this ruling yet?

Ah, that's right, it wasn't a "Ruling" the SCOTUS didn't vote on it. They refused to hear the appeal from the Cook Co. AG, which allowed a lower court ruling to stand.

So what does that mean exactly? It means the two party consent law is still on the books in Illinois (and other states) and police can still arrest people for violating that law, even though the case will likely be thrown out later before a judge.

Confusing? Yes, it is. As it stands right now, the courts say we have the right to film the police, the police however still have the ability to arrest you for breaking the law, even though that law is bad.

So before filming the police ask yourself this question, "Is it really worth going to jail and having to fight the charges?". For most people it simply isn't worth the hassle.

I'm just saying, if it's ok for a camera to film me at my job to make sure I don't do anything shady or stupid, then it should be ok for cops to be filmed too.

@CrakrJak, auburnjunky, and randomxnp,

The Supreme Court rules last November that filming the police is protected under the 1st amendment.

This is not the original uploaded. If you wait to the end there's a link to the same video with about 80,000 views. That has more detail, like the name of one of the police officers.

Something is fishy here. If the cops gave the cell phone guy a citation then all the cell phone guy would have to do to get the officers names is contact the police department. I wonder who wants to know the names of the cops. Cuz if it's cell phone guy then he's just a dumbass.

Is that illegal in California?

Not quite right: there are a couple of states with specific laws that prevent this. Illinois is one, can't remember the other but it is not California, so this guy is righteous an the officer should be swelling the ranks of the California unemployed.

You don't have to do something just because the police tell you! They can tell you all they like, but if they have no right to force you, then it is no crime to disobey.

Filming is the last line of defense for civilians.

Third party taping is fine. But if you don't put it down when they ask they construe it as a weapon.

Really, if you don't do something they ask this is generally the response. And boy do they give you warning. Seriously, at least three times in the sweetest possible way where it is more a request and then bam! It's your fault.

Also, it's illegal to smoke on public facilities (parks, beaches, government buildings). Especially near beaches, dumb-ass.

America, the Home of the Free, let me guess, the cop got told he was a bad boy and should be more polite next time? or did he get a medal for outstanding bravery?

CrakrJak, you are wrong, it has been determined on a national level that filming cops is legal. If they are in public and doing their job.

Whether or not people have the right to film the police is currently a state by state, and in some cases city by city, issue of consent. Some places have one party consent others two (or all) parties must consent. Then there are even local ordinances against filming police to contend with.

Sorry, but if all this stuff allegedly took place after the camera was knocked down, then like @Gerry said there would be a multitude of reports with the cop's names all over them. Especially if IA is investigating.
