Date: 01/16/13 Welcome to the "Whatever happened to community policing?" game. Caution: playing this game can be extremely damaging to your person! 1. See if...
Fair warning: This video has no audio and is essentially a rant (see his comments) by a guy who is unhappy with policing in the Orange County area of Southern California. He seems to be fearful that officers will see him video taping and this will endanger him. (If that's not the point, then I guess I'm missing it.) The issue of confiscating citizen's recording gear if they try to video or audio tape officers is a fairly hot topic right now and one that every officer should consider. I think we'll lose our right to control scenes if we don't act more judiciously. Officers certainly have a right not to allow some yahoo to disrupt their investigation, traffic stop, pedestrian stop, etc.; and, officers have a right not to have a video taping citizen in their faces or behind them creating a hazard to the officers, suspects, and to the citizen. Given this, I think some time, place, and manner policies need to be adopted. These can be based upon a utilitarian argument (e.g. most people are better off by allowing taping of encounters, but most are also better off not to have this taping done in unreasonable ways); and, these policies can also be drafted in a way that satisfies deontological ethics since it establishs rules based on reasonable evaluation that should apply to all (cops and citizens alike).
