is it really considered a crime?
in the UK i video'd plenty of coppers during demos etc. and recently a rozzer got busted in Vancouver for pushing a pedestrian to the ground in an unprovoked act, which would never have occurred had it not been captured on camera.
frankly, they can tape us so why not the reverse? those upholding the law need to be found to be higher than it, not working inspite of it.
unless impeding their ability to do their work, i fail to see the problem.
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
