Probably charges will be dropped, as have happened before, but there seems to be a definite pattern of police objecting to being recorded.

This has law suit written all over it.
I wish, but not likely. I mean, cops kill people and get a vacation while it's determined that it was justified (or at least did not violate policy)

There's probably some wiretapping law they can use to justify this. Is FL a two-party consent state? Interfering with police duties, maybe? So many laws, there's gotta be something.

Maybe this belongs in News Stories?

More and more reason why once I get a dash cam, it will be installed discretely.

just don't post the video on YouTube... even if the cop draws a gun on you (true story, happened not far from here, on I-95 IIRC)

This is a great example to be shared with friends and family to promote the benefits of using a dashcam or other recording device.

how do you figure its not likely to go to lawsuit? even if there is a law, thats the criminal side, the lawsuit is the civil side. Remember OJ Simpson? won the criminal case, lost his ass on the civil side for milliions of $$$ as he was found responsible for Nicole's death, even though he wast found guilty on the criminal side.

as far as this lady, the cop arrested her for recording him, then didnt charge her for it. BIG TIME 4th amendment rights violation of her liberty, as without charging her with a valid crime, she was illegally seized. so even if there IS a law against recording the cops, the idiot officer DID NOT CHARGE HER WITH IT. he and the county will pay big time for that one. she already has 2 attorneys suing the county, 2 because they both know they will get more than enough money to split the winnings. people sue cops all the time and win. I have heard Oklahoma City cuts checks all the time for lawsuits, some are small time BS that is isnt worth their time fighting, so they settle it for a few thousand bucks rather than spend 10 grand defending it, others are legitimate officer misconduct that the city ends up paying out the nose for.... and rightfully so.

this county will be cuttiing this woman one helluva big check, i guarantee it.

on another note, thank God Oklahoma is a one party state.... :D

45 minutes from my place. Dash cam with a "recording Video" sticker posted on my back window. Got the dash cam because I was getting pulled over for made up violations for a while and wanted proof. Odd thing is that once I traded my black car to old man gold and put the recorder on, I stopped getting pulled over for burned out tag light. Been pulled over 7 times for that reason and every time I got back home it was working.

Her lawyers have already notified the sheriff's office that they intend to file suit.

And the current flock of politicians believe more laws and more government is the answer. The question must be: how much more corruption can we get away with?

Only in MD... pretty sure that was a state charge not a federal one.
Yes it was. I remember it well. This is about the only thing Gansler ever got right. You can probably still find the youtube video if you look for it.

I dread the day that I get pulled over in Dade or Broward County, especially since I always carry when I visit those areas. The cops over there are notorious for being anti-citizen, anti-1A,2A,4A... I mean shit, they're just about anti-everything that is pro-citizen. Lol.

This lady definitely has grounds for a lawsuit IMO, and she will be paid handsomely for it.

So the taxpayers of Broward county will have to pay. That'll show 'em not to treat the taxpayers like that ... hey, wait a minute!

The point is, this miscarriage of justice will continue until the cops start being held accountable for their actions and start going to jail when they do these things. It will take a righteous and brave prosecutor (if there are any) to be the one to start putting away bad cops.

the tax payers will still pay the same amount to the county, regardless of where the money goes.

look on the bright side, maybe it will come out of the sheriffs lidar or radar fund.... or maybe he will have to lay off a deputy or five....:p
