Freedom of the press applies to everyone -- yes, even bloggers (1st amendment)

Freedom of the press applies to everyone -- yes, even bloggers (1st amendment) | Higher Politics | Scoop.it

Analysis:  Recent stories have shown bloggers and reporters are posting pictures up and doing things such as videotaping police. Emily Good of Rochester, NY was recently caught by a cop when videotaping him off of her camera. He went over to her and told her to stop and stated it was illegal. When taken to court, she was later charged with obstruction of justice for arguing with a police officer. As it turned out, the police officer was wrong. Videotaping the police and anyone else in a public place is perfectly legal in New York state. The chief of police apologized later on and found out that the 1st amendment does protect these citizens who are deciding to do this. I don't agree with the 1st amendment toward this situation. I feel that everybody should have their own privacy, especially a cop. Why should somebody be able to videotape somebody else or take pictures of somebody else if it isn't okay with the person being captured on camera? I know that if somebody was videotaping me or taking pictures of me, i would feel that its against my personal property and i would definitely say something. I do agree with the 1st amendment, but when it comes to invading personal property, i feel its not right.

It is great to see that even the Chief of Police understands that he is not above any citizens. All of the police work should be shown to the people just as any citizen's is. People are often shown and portrayed poorly but when it comes to police officers they seem to be always taken as great people. They are not above the law and need to be treated just as any other citizen of the United States.

I agree with mitch. I think if there was a sense of equality in this world it would avoid a lot of fighting. All most people want is to be heard. When people see police getting the same treatment as a normal citizen it s gonna make people happy.
