Federal Judge to Camera-Shy
Austin Cops: People Have a Right
to Record You. Deal With It.

Reason, by Jacob Sullum

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/27/2014 6:04:36 AM

As my colleagues and I frequently note, Americans have a well-established constitutional right to record police officers as they publicly perform their duties. Yet cops across the country continue to harass and arrest people for exercising that right, using bogus charges such as wiretapping, resisting arrest, and interfering with police. Yesterday yet another federal judge issued a clear message to those cops: Cut it out. The case was brought by Antonio Buehler, an Austin, Texas, activist who has had several run-ins with camera-shy cops. The first incident occurred on January 1, 2012, when Buehler pulled into a 7-11 in Austin

We The People pay the salaries of public servants, who serve us and we are their masters. It is high time that they be on notice that we will watch them and lawfully record them while on duty and hold them accountable for any and all abuses of the public trust which is a privilege we bestow them from our good graces. We are their masters, not the other way around. We should never have to dread interactions with police, bureaucrats or anyone else on the public payroll. That´s un-American.

Couldn´t agree with the Federal Judge more--however, the right to record police is easily abused. When does the execution of this right turn into harassment and/or obstruction?

In the inimitable words of Yul Brynner in The King and I "...it´s a puzzlement!"

The Police have a way of exercising control over the citizenry which admittedly is often not legal, however the people who find themselves victims of that sort of behavior by the Police are usually the Antonio Buehlers´ of the world, they try to get the Police dealing with the enemies of our society, the protectors of illegal aliens, Muslim activists who constantly try to create scenarios where our enemies are "seemingly" doing nothing wrong.

In fairness to everyone I don´t think the Police simply pick on innocent neighborhood organizers walking down the street. Do you? What the Police are DEALING with, are mostly anti-societal punks playing all the angles. On the other hand no one seems to care about Politicians and government agencies who usurp their power at the expense of the citizens the Federal Judge claims to be protecting. Can you say Obama, Holder, Pelosi or Harry Reid boys and girls.

#1 I agree. I support cops and know they have a very tough often thankless job. But I´m sick of that attitude also, the shooting of dogs for no reason, the excessive use of force on the elderly and handicapped, telling innocent civilians what they can or can´t do often in violation of the law or they will get arrested. It has to stop. If the cops are not violating the law then they shouldn´t have any problem with being recorded. I believe all cops should wear cameras to avoid incomplete videos being used against them. Spend more money on individual cameras and less on military assault equipment. I´m concerned the Feds are turning our own police against us.

A small win for the good guys. I do feel for the cops in that everyone makes small mistakes in their jobs. Most of the time we are able to brush it over and press on. If someone were following me around with a camera and publishing every mistake it would be at the very least unnerving.
Unfortunately, the police code of silence has caused it to swing so far the other direction that all mistakes and even deliberate criminal activity are hidden. Truly evil bullies are as protected as the guy who forgot to calibrate his radar.
Besides, the courts have decided that we have no expectation of privacy in public, so the government can record us any time they want, Soviet style. Sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.

Wiretapping? That´s good. Perhaps my cynicism is shaped by all the cops I´ve seen hiding with radar guns, trying to generate revenue. One day coming home from work I saw four cops on motorcycles in a 2 mile stretch, with people pulled over. These new "unmarked" motorcycles and riders are almost Robo-coppish.

I have friends and neighbors who are cops. It´s a hard job and not well-paid. Most of them deserve our respect. There is a certain type of personality, however, that too often gravitates to either law enforcement or the military where power can be exercised. Now, both are using psychological testing to avoid those individuals.

There is an increasing effort to militarize the police in this county with this administration giving military hardware to Police departments knowing they will not be refused. Along with all this is the attitude of invincibility and superiority that can develop in some officers. Of course this administration is also creating crisis after crisis to fan the flames as well, so this is a good decision, but expect to see more of this chaos on You Tube!

Cops have known its your word against theirs, and they are backed by their friends at court. The cameras are good thing that make it no longer your word against theirs, and forces them to obey the law as well.

The moral of this story is to only record the cops if you´re set up to automatically upload the video somewhere else besides the camera. And password protect the uploading. It´s honestly doing a favor to good cops for the bad ones to be publicly outed and hopefully reformed or fired. And since when is ignorance of the law an excuse - it´s not and the cops should be deeply ashamed for even trying that angle.

A couple of things come to mind in relation to this.
First, If he has been arrested 3 times for legally filming police in the performance of their public duties then the police department and the city of Austin have violated the federal RICO statutes which require 3 predicate acts to establish. RICO allows for treble damages.
Second: If the officers knew that what he was doing was legal (which the Judge says they should) and they arrested him anyway then they have committed the criminal act of "Official Oppression Under The Color Of Law". He can and should ask the Travis County D.A. to file criminal charges against the officers.

I believe in the rule of law and that means those that enforce the law must abide by the law.

I have never been assaulted by a cop, stopped for no reason or questioned, or had my dog shot, had my door broken in, been accused of a crime I didn´t commit, Tased, pepper sprayed,handcuffed.......
I´m a law abiding citizen and if you read the news, all cops are on the take, bullys, sociopaths,liars...etc. I reject that completely. Our police officers for the most part are just like you and me, they have families, they go to church, they want the society we live in to be a safe place.
I encourage ride-alongs to meet the men and women we entrust with our safety. It´s free and it helps us better understand who and what they are.

Police Chiefs (to use a non-PC term) should obey the law and FIRE officers that cross the line in trying to prevent taping of their actions. Citizens shouldn´t be in the middle of the police business, but the 1A is not the 10A - it is FIRST of the Amendments for that reason, just as it is followed by the 2A regarding Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

#14; I wish I´d been able to film a cop at a bridge crossing years ago.

A gate wouldn´t rise after I paid my toll and after several minutes a surely cop showed up and started to bark at me that I wasn´t in NJ anymore and told me to shut up. He was walking around my car telling me that ´we´ were always pulling ´stuff´ like this and he took out his handcuffs and approached me. My elderly mom and pop were in the car and he barked at them too, lest he arrest all of us.

After several more minutes he raised the gate and let us pass.

Cops aren´t just like you and me. They have to power to harass and arrest for any imagined slight.

The writer of this article misstated facts.
The police were at the gas pumps as was the woman they abused. Bueller was across the street. He was capturing their actions by his cell phone but what brought him to his attention was the fact he was defending the woman and saw how the cops manhandled her which was nothing more than police brutality. The writer also failed to mention he had just returned from active duty in Afghanistan where he was a decorated serviceman.

Cops in NJ are very well paid, around $100,000 plus OT in many cases. The urban cops earn less while the cops out in the well-to-do suburbs do very well and get to drive around sealed off from the citizenry in their cruisers with little to do but prey on wayward out-of-towners. A recent survey of places for road trips in the USA listed NJ as eighth from the bottom. No wonder, as with 565 municipalities, and many having their own police force, the state is simply crawling with the constabulary. As someone mentioned above, Princeton, NJ comes to mind with a police presence that seems way too much. As for the dangers of the job, it doesn´t appear the top ten of US occupations.

“Zone of Interest” is Martin Amis’ tour de force, but it couldn’t have happened without the influence of Peter Foges, Christopher Hitchens and others. In the years after the war, Britain was awash with stories and images of Nazi hell. The war crimes trials had revealed the full horror of what Hitler had done. Books like Lord Russell of Liverpool’s “Scourge of the Swastika” made the front pages and topped best-seller lists for months. When he was five, Martin Amis saw one of these lurid accounts accompanied by pictures of the railway tracks and crematoria of Auschwitz. Unable to understand them

On the polling front this weekend, Republicans have a few reasons to celebrate. Last week, the building blocks of the narrowest Republican Senate majority were clearly coming together. This week, polls indicate that Republicans have a number of avenues to pursue in their quest to win back the majority. In Louisiana, Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) has significantly narrowed the gap with Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA), but that race looks set to head to a runoff. A CNN/ORC survey released on Sunday shows Cassidy and Landrieu statistically tied with 40 to 43 percent support respectively. That poll also revealed that retired

The early indication is that the tractor-trailer crossed over Interstate 35, into the southbound lanes, near the Oklahoma-Texas border, and struck a bus owned by North Central Texas College that was carrying the team back to campus after a game Friday evening.

In most of its details, the domestic-violence case of Mark Fuller was not all that unusual. One night in August, a woman called 911 from a hotel room in Atlanta, pleading for help, because a man was beating her. When the police arrived, Fuller’s wife, Kelli, opened the door. She had “visible lacerations to her mouth and forehead,” the police report said. During an argument in which she had accused her husband of infidelity, the report continued, she said that he “threw her to the ground and kicked her. Mrs. Fuller also stated she was dragged around the room and Mr. Fuller hit her in the mouth several times with his hands.

But, as tends to happen in these situations, he’s been a bit overrated in much of the sermonizing of his career over the past several months.

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

Washington - The parents of Michael Brown said Saturday in an interview with The Associated Press they were unmoved by the apology of the Ferguson, Missouri, police chief weeks after their unarmed 18-year-old son was killed by a police officer. Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9. "An apology would be when Darren Wilson has handcuffs, processed and charged with murder," Brown Sr. said. The young man, who was black,

When the U.S. military strikes, its leaders often choose colorful code names for the operation that sometimes stick in history, like Operation Overlord or Rolling Thunder or Desert Storm. Not this time. The U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria doesn´t have a name. "I know of no plans at this point to name it," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm.
