THIS is why you record other people’s interactions with the cops.
THIS is why you KNOW YOUR RIGHTS so you can Flex Your Rights.
THIS is why you should always be Filming Cops!!!!
THIS is an EXCELLENT example right here!!!
According to this recent article on Activist Post, “A man was hassled by a cop for walking his dog at night. A cop-blocking pedestrian came to offer some accountability by simply walking up with his camera. What happens next would be truly funny if it weren’t for the fact that the bullying tactic often works to harm many Americans.
This infuriated the cop who demanded to know the man’s name. “Am I being detained?” was all the man repeated in a respectful manner, also emphasizing that he does not consent to answer questions.
But this citizen knew his rights. That he doesn’t have to answer questions unless he is being detained or suspected of a crime.”
