National Guardsman facing 16 years in prison for uploading youtube video of police

Posted on July 20th, 2010 Dan

There’s no way this guy could have stopped videotaping with a gun pointed at him, even if he wanted to, and even if it were illegal to make video in public in the US.

The cop exercised his judgment and thought pulling a gun was was the right course of action so perhaps we can’t fault him for it.  Maybe based on his experience reckless bikers are risky to stop.

But this intimidation tactic over the video goes above and beyond what can be considered reasonable.

Just let it go, cops.  WHO F’ING CARES about the video.  Stop wasting your time and taxpayer money.   Don’t you have some real crimes to investigate?
