    We really need to end the police war on cameras. It should be obvious to everyone that they do not have a right to privacy when they are on the job.

    That police officer should be jailed. Even if a person agreed with the policy of not filming police duty their duties, and I do not, that camera was evidence. Damn some cops are stupid.

    I never disagreed with that. I only have a problem when idiots like JB want to act like it's a majority of police who behave badly.

    Fuck the complaint. The guy has grounds for a lawsuit.

    Why did people hand them over? There isn't a chance in hell I would have allowed the cops to take my phone from me without force. People really need to stop being such damn cowards and start standing up for their rights.

    Maybe they saw what the police did to Benoit and thought they would rather have the cops steal their phones then have their heads bashed in and have the cops steal their phones.

    Because in states with such laws you CAN be arrested for recording LEOs doing their jobs. If you are arrested the police can and of course will confiscate your phone anyway. SO often times LEOs just tell people if they will turn over their phones so that pictures and audio or videos can be deleted that they won't be arrested and can go on their way.

    Doesn't make the law right, just an explanation.

    Courts have ruled time and time again that there is nothing illegal about video taping the police.
