Police Can’t Order You to Stop Filming Them in Public or Force You to Delete Pics

Police Can’t Order You to Stop Filming Them in Public or Force You to Delete Pics:

A good deal of the footage coming out Ferguson, Missouri, this week has been provided by non-journalists, using their phones to record and photograph events. At the same time, reports claim that police are attempting to block both ordinary citizens and journalists from documenting the situation. What these officers either don’t know or aren’t saying is that you have the legal right to photograph the police, even when they tell you not to.

In light of what is going on in Ferguson this past week, this is a good reminder to both shooters and law enforcement.
