Why the public needs equality with the police over the control of surveillance.

A reporter says she filmed an act of police brutality, the officer filmed took her camera and deleted the key footage.


This kind of thing is what I was talking about in a recent column, "How to Stop Cops from Abusing Technology."


I'm not saying her accusations are correct. I'm saying both the police and citizens and media should have the right to film everything, and each maintain control over what they captured, and let the courts settle these things with all evidence un-tampered with.

Citizens and media do and should have the right to film the police. Police officers should not have control over everything filmed in their vicinity.
