You know doctor shopping killed Elvis and led Rush Limbaugh into trouble also? I would think they would have been cautionary tales for you.

Cops probably view poor uneducated and obnoxious kids as subhuman. A lot of these kids are foul mouthed, disrespectful, and psychopathic.

Dehumanizing a class of people, even if they be without any sense of morality, leads to overreactions by cops.

There is no law against being raised in a barn. Cops aren't going to teach them any lessons by beating them up.

"You will respect mah authoritah."

No they won't.

Cuff 'em, shoot 'em, or release 'em. Everything in between is unproductive.

Being detained for photography is commonplace. PINAC site has tons of such videos. Unfortunately, there is no repercussion to the officer.

This should never happen. Not even once.

People are frequently detained for "photography" because they intrude on crime scenes or otherwise refuse lawful police orders. You've got a right to film the cops, but not a right to stand wherever you want while doing it.

And people are detained from videoing while they are on their own property too or where they are across the street from an accident or arrest.

Being on your own property doesn't allow you to refuse police orders or intrude on crime scenes.

My point is just that while I'm sure there are police abuses, it's probably not as many as you seem to think.

The police order has to be lawful. They have no right to tell you where you may stand on your own property.

Actually, I think police abuses are underreported because the average American doesn't even realize that his rights were violated. The cop said no pictures of police activity or government buildings so that must be the law.

They absolutely do have the right to tell you where you can stand on your own property, as long as it's an otherwise lawful order that's basically irrelevant.

The thing is, I don't hear cops in these videos saying, "Stand over there and film all you want." What I hear is, "TURN OFF THAT FUCKING CAMERA OR I'LL ARREST YOUR ASS" and similar things. I have yet to notice an officer objecting to where the person filming is but rather it's always the fact the person is filming in the first place.

Then it wouldn't be worth putting on Youtube!

Maybe the cop thinks the person has refused instructions because he is distracted by the camera or is unable to both film and obey the order at the same time.

Maybe the cop feels disrespected and is enforcing contempt of cop laws.
