2 questions, 1: How far exactly is charging distance? Is it like the 5 foot tackling charge, or the make-a-sprinting-bee-line-for-you-from-a-hundred-yards-away charge? 2: what about any of the other people that are within the immediate vicinity either relaxing under some tree shade or walking along and going about their day? Should they also be detained for being distractions? I can understand remaining at a respectable distance so as not to give the police any reason to question you in the first place, but either way, there was no reason to detain him simply for recording the scene.
'when you are with in charging distance you are a distraction because the cop must watch you you never stand next to a cop car that puts you on the seen"
That makes sense, but it seems that if you are just standing there or sitting in your car then you are not in 'charging distance' but iof you start recording, then suddenly you are within 'charging distance'.
I don't see how the distance itself somehow changes, based on weather or not, you pull out a camera.
"i understand the frustration when police see they are being recorded… it’s easy to take part of something out of context. but it is a protected right of the free people of America. if they cannot hack it, they are not cut out for police work."
More and more cops are wearing bodycams.
If something is taken out of context, they could easily show the whole video in context and show why the out of context video is misleading, and not telling the real story.
Of course the lib media will only show the out of context part they like, but more and more, they are getting called out on their false claims, when they do things like that.

it because the moron filming was way to close and was a distraction to the cop
What?? 8yr! did you even see the video? The video guy was way too close to a police stop. The video guy filmed the license plate without the consent of the owner. The cop should of right away told the guy to move back 20 feet. Could it and should it of been handled better? Yes!.
Didn't have time to add lol! Do I have issues with cop coming across the street and demanding cameras? Yes! Do I have issues with cops taking cameras away from people involved when they seem to have no issue with them standing right there? Yes.
This guy was a a$$ and if you watch the video he was provoking the police. He was done with the stop so at that point the camera didn't need to be on, but the guy kept recording. Why? because he was trying to provoke the officer.

this is the mind screw and a bit of a trap for the cop if you are law abiding then you do not need to show your id but how does the cop know if you are law abiding with out some form of id such as giving your name?it like saying keep us safe but first but on this blind fold
The citizen is FOLLOWING the local laws and state laws. Ask yourself why did this police officer EXCEED the law? Sure the citizen 'could' have been a bad guy. If you really want to live in a police state, don't push back against government overreach... soon you won't have any 'rights'. Just get rid of probable cause and your community will be waaay safer. I hope you like being stopped and questioned on a regular basis (for the sake of the children)... papers please!
The cops are not there to protect you. They are there to enforce the will of The State. Multiple court cases have stated that cops do not have to protect you or prevent crimes against persons from occurring.
If they do so it is because they have a modicum of conscience left and are acting as a human being. They are fewer and fewer.
You have the right NOT to incriminate yourself. Good or bad, you have that right. It sucks, but it's just.
How does your name indicate your are law abiding? Is it printed somewhere on your id?
Simple answer for all you commies....Innocent until PROVEN guilty.
Should the police pull over every car that drives by to make sure the driver has a license? Should they stop everyone and ID them to make sure they are not fugitives? I mean, they can't rule it out w/out stopping you and forcing you to show ID, right? Not trying to be a dick, your comment makes sense but it's really no different.
Read the law. It is reasonable cause. A guy with a gun has no more reason to ID themselves then a guy with a comb! Reasonable suspicion.
Again, what do civilized people do under this circumstance? Obey the officer and let the legal system run its course.
Never forget "who" really is responsilble; we are. For electing numbskulls that allow the government sector to thrive and grow larger and larger.
I'm continually floored that the vast majority of people cannot connect the dots.
dfissell: We are not asking cops to keep us safe- they can't do that. We are asking for them to capture criminals and help bring them to justice after a crime has been committed. We are not are asking them to exercise prior restraint on anyone in the name of crime prevention. This is a very basic concept in our society.
Hauschild. Would you willingly allow police to enter into your house without due cause or a search warrant? It sounds like you would then you'd be happy to let the legal system run its' course. What do civilized people do under the circumstances? Are you suggesting our Founding Fathers were not civilized? I'll use the case of the NY cop who caused the death of a suspect by using a banned choke hold and subsequently, using your suggested legal system, was exonerated. I know very little about law but using a banned choke hold causing death is clearly manslaughter. Sure, there is always a civil rights case but that is not the point. That same person is still a cop and it appears his entire chain of command is looking the other way. So, my friend, what does a civilized people do?
