    You touch a cop they shoot you, THAT should be the policy. WHy do people think they should be able to attack an LEO?

    The one being charged in the story didn't touch, or attempt to touch the police. Nor did he likely even say anything to the police.

    This will not end well. I hope the kid goes to court. He will win. He will then sue the crap out of the LAUSD and hopefully the DA for Conspiracy to Violate his Civil Rights Under Color of Authority. The DA is not immune from that charge. If what is reported is true then this is a travesty.

    I was merely commenting on the idiots who DID touch the cop. On the matter of recording LEO doing their jobs except in a few unusual circumstances I don't think it should be illegal.

    I agree. And in this case, it looks like it still isn't illegal. Otherwise why come up with a bunch of bogus charges against the kid instead of charging him with filming it, if it was illegal?
