Man records police. Gets arrested. Gets $25,000 settlement. Same guy records same officers. Gets arrested again.
Will they ever learn? Recording the police doing their job in a public place isn't a crime. In fact, it may enjoy a level of protection in the Constitution. Check here for a recent article on the subject by me and a former law professor.
If you or anyone you know ever gets arrested for recording a police officer in public, call me immediately.
Better yet, use my iPhone App to do the recording so that it is sent to me immediately.
