I didn't read the article, but from the pregunta I believe it's stupid. So the police have the right to keep secret that they are sadistic trigger-happy fools looking to kick some butt, and we are the ones that end up on the 12 o'clock news? STUPID AMERICA!!!! I'm not very happy with my country right now.
Pshh, all those people on youtube better watch out xD But seriously, it's really dumb. Most cops are bored power-trippers and they use the smallest offense as an excuse to take out their nightsticks and beat someone down. Seriously, have tu ever seen the video of the kid who was skateboarding in a "No skating" zone. Holy fuck. I have also witnessed this happen. God-damn, cops are dicks.
Tch, tu have no idea how much better your police is than so many other police forces. You'd better have this law than stupid cocky drunk teenagers who are kicking the butts of policemen and women and paramedics and busdrivers and no judge o single citizen who gives a crap.
And btw, it's already illegal if tu videotape ANY sort of brutality so why would police brutality would be any different? Sure they carry badges but they are doing their jobs! And if they did the wrong thing they'll be prosecuted anyways so videotaping them doesn't make much difference. I'm on the side of the police on this one. srry.
