No secret that the police don’t like to be filmed.  “He said; he said” is much easier when there is no video.  “We, The Sheeple” need video to be convinced.

It’s a shame that the politicians and bureaucrats can’t be trusted.  EVER!

NJ Man Arrested for Refusing to Hand Over Camera as “Evidence” After Cop Veers Off Road
Posted by: Carlos Miller in January 10, 2015

*** begin quote ***

A New Jersey man was arrested Thursday after refusing to hand over his video camera to a cop, who insisted he needed it as “evidence,” even though case law makes it very clear that citizens do not have to give up their footage unless their camera was used in the commission of a crime.

You would think a detective from the prosecutor’s office would know better.

But then again, cops make up their own laws when trying to protect their own.

After all, the so-called evidence demanded by detective Dave Margentino from the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office involved a fellow cop who had veered off the road in a single-car accident, needing to be airlifted to the hospital.

Andrew Flinchbaugh, 23, was video recording the aftermath of the accident, standing well out the way of police and rescue officials, recording the victim being loaded onto the copter as well as the copter taking off.

No wonder inmates in the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee are fleeing the state at the first chance they get.
