Is Filming a Police Officer a “Domestic Threat”? Austin Activist on Trial (Now Acquitted) for Videotaping an Arrest (Video)

buehler ccThis guy, a West Point grad and veteran by the way, was just found not guilty of failing to comply with an officer’s order. Congratulations Mr. Buehler. Keep the cameras rolling. This takes guts.

It should be remembered that cops do have a very difficult job. Dealing with the toughest part of society all the time I imagine can really affect someone. But the police do not have a right to treat people badly just because they are police and because they have a tough job. Ubiquitous mobile cameras help keep cops honest.

Hey, we’re filmed everywhere we go.
