Indianapolis cops must allow citizens to film police activity after $200k settlement

28.02.2014 17:29

The terms of a recently settled lawsuit in Indianapolis, Indiana will require the city’s police force to remind officers that it’s legal for civilians to videotape on-duty cops, but it will also cost the department more than just that.

Are you allowed to do this in Russia, I heard Putin can jail anyone for any reason as long as 100 years

  


President Obama can and has declared Americans terrorist and sentenced them to death by drone strike. No different than in Russia.

“Taking photographs of things that are plainly visible from public spaces is a constitutional right – and that includes federal buildings, transportation facilities and police and other government officials carrying out their duties. Unfortunately, there is a widespread, continuing pattern of law enforcement officers ordering people to stop taking photographs from public places, and harassing, detaining and arresting those who fail to comply,” reads a portion of the American Civil Liberties Union’s official website." : )

we need to record the presidents actions all the time and view it to the public.

"Safe and reasonable distance," cop translation: 1 1/2 miles away.

There needs to be a federal law to the same effect. If police have nothing to hide, why don't they want to be filmed.

Why did someone have to sue the government to obtain their rights?

Are we to believe that finally cops will be held accountable for abusing citizens? If this becomes a national policy, it will create a monumental difference in the way that "law enforcement" is carried out in the US!

  


Begging any master to fix problems is still slave-minded. Free yourself from the government superstition.

I don't know about the rest of you. But I don't need anyones permission to record public servants, or speak up when they are Fing up.

Been to jail quite a few times just for that reason.

Yep , got a big mouth !

  


Thank you for your service to humanity!

I hope the cops are made to pay from their own pockets before being fired and tried and jailed, until the time comes for them to be executed.

  


Will never happen. I bet you the cops were put on PAID admin leave during investigations. The money to pay them might have come from their union. And their union is the reason they get away with things that none of us can. They got the badge, the costume, and are backed by unions and by the elected rulers that they got into power.

If any one believes that the cops will obey this, they are idiots. There was already a piece of papaer that guranteed this right. Its called the constitution. If they didnt obey that highly regarded piece of paper, do you think they gonna obey some stupid document printed by their police heads? I call BS

If an engineer makes a mistake, he can be held personally liable. The same rule should apply to cops, prosecutors, judges and the like.

This is what functioning democracy must look like.

Score one for the good guys, at last. Maybe this will save a few lives if more citizens record the fascist lackeys in action. I am in New Zealand and hopefully this case may get used as a precedent here.
