All police officers are trained to lie, but few apparently are ever trained in the law. Federal courts have repeatedly ruled that videotaping police officers in public settings is protected under the 1st Amendment.
Either an unidentified taxpayer-funded LEO (legally entitled to oppress) from Connecticut has not received the message, or he intentionally disregarded it for nefarious purposes. The Photography Is Not A Crime website posted a new video on Saturday of the badge-wearing thug assaulting a woman for operating her video camera on a public street.
Not much was known about the oppressor or the victim in the case, including whether she was injured while being taken down by the LEO or what charges were filed against her. This much is known: LEOs do not like public scrutiny. They also feel they are above the law and are trained to lie in order to trick people into incriminating themselves. All encounters with police should be recorded.
