Recording police behaviour, a dangerous but necessary activity

Recording police behaviour, a dangerous but necessary activity

(7:49) If a picture is worth 1000 words, then a video is worth 1000 pictures. Video provides transparency, accountability and a more accurate account of incidents that occur. In the UK, it is an offence to take pictures of police officers in public if the pictures are "likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism". In the US, the laws are complicated and vary between states. Next video explains more about US law.

The end result, is that any one in a position of power needs a check to that power. Left alone, power will corrupt a group or an individual. In the US we are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, that has changed. There is another argument, that if you find yourself dealing with the police and you act an disrespecting asshole, you may just get the shit beat out of you; because you are at the end of the day dealing with humans. To not except that reality, is ignorance and stupidity at your own expense. Police need and should be subject to the same laws as us all.

Yup... and I'd bet that "officer of the peace" running towards the camera near the end of that clip was thinking "damn... better turn the camera off". Man this video was disturbing...

true, however any case of police violence is one to many. im not saying that violence against police is any better but the police have every right to react to those situations. arresting people for disturbing the peace and/or assaulting an officer. however filming the scene of a crime/accident does not count as any of those situations. if anything police themselves should be forced to use more camera's since it could benefit the righteous party.

this is bullshit. for every case of police violence there are a hundred cases of violence against police. i am not condoning police violence but this one sided view is crap. it is one of the most stressful jobs in the world and this video is not helping matters by painting the police as something that is inherently evil. and for the record i do agree that the people should have the right to videotape the police.

Of course it can be a stressful job, I think everyone who is a police officer knows what they're signing up for. It's pretty obvious there's a lot of police violence, they take on criminals for Christ's sake!.. would you like a video about all the violence against police? what would be the solution to that? ******* POLICE!! DUH ... Personally my experience with police (in the UK) has not been good, they've nearly always been rude and one tried telling my mate that he didn't have he right to talk.. dicks mate.

If someone is finding being a cop so stressful that they wind up beating a person that is already subdued then they need to seek employment elsewhere. Cops are supposed to protecting us from violent people but apparently we need protection from them.

No this is not bullshit - it is evidence that if you give the power of violence to any group of people, a significant number will abuse that power.

Though that would probably be a good punishment/deterrent for abusive police officers.

I'm sorry but I really don't understand what you're point is. Violence against the police does not come from people in handcuffs. How does the fact that there is violence against the police excuse them from beating the shit out someone with their hands tied behind their back, exactly? The police force is inherently evil. I've known police officers before and after they've been cops and it goes to your head. It turns you into a self-righteous shitbag who thinks he has the right to pass judgement on everyone.

Invalid argument. Just because somebody robs you, you are not allowed to do the same. Police violence is not justified unless it is in self-defence, or necessary because of other immediate threats. If there is no threat, no use of force is justified. Excessive use of force by the police is undermining citizens trust in law enforcement, and getting away uncharged is violating equality before the law, one of the foundations of the state of law.

I completely agree, though I'm sure that they would just turn them off while they beat you and say there was some sort of freak malfunction or something.

You hippies need to quit complaining. Most of this is standard operating procedure for non-compliant subjects and if you had ever worked in the industry [or left your liberal arts class/parent's home, for that matter], you would know that.

This shouldn't be singled out in regards for racism... this is a great example of said decisions to put the wrong people in control of a powerful position! I've had my rough law enforcement encounters and I will say 100% some polie officers are truly corrupt and down right wrong! I now pull out my phone, to video record, EVERYTIME I am approached, pulled over, or even spoken to by a law enforcement officer. Also making it very clear that I am recording the activities.

Come to think of it, why do cops even carry billy clubs anymore? I literally 100% truthfully have never seen one used for anything other than hitting someone in handcuffs.

Latest comment: In the UK it is an offence to take pictures of ANYTHING in public if the pictures are likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism. It's not so specific as to target photographing of police officers.

Most of those being "assaulted" were either resisting arrest or had first of all threatened the police. If you dont do anything wrong the police will leave you alone. In most cases these people deserve to get the sh1t kicked out of them.

I find this rather funny considering the fact that the police are only supposed to stop you and arrest you. Not continously punch you in the head, keep slamming you from a wall to a floor, or group up together and kick you. If this were one race doing it to another it would be 'racism' but when the people who are supposed to serve and protect do it, many find that justified. Disgusting. Not all police are like this, but the ones who are will never get brought up and charged with it, why? Because of the power they have come to hold. Even with all of the evidence, you would have a slim chance of bringing one down. Wait, you offended me...do you deserve to get kicked repeditivly by several of my friends and me after we run you over? You looked at me the wrong way, lets just bash your head agaisnt the wall and throw you on the floor. This is what happens to the world once people lose their humanity.
