An interesting year in California as police across the state are trying out a new strategy to stop people from Copwatching.
Incidents have been taking place where Police are claiming to believe that camera wielding citizens may be pointing weapons at them. Frankly it’s true. Any police officer that is doing something wrong, certainly doesn’t want it documented, and any person with a camera, can use it to protect themselves.
Carlos Miller based out of Miami has been pretty on top of the issue but in case you haven’t seen
Look at these four recent incidents in different areas across the state of California and determine for yourself whether this is a new attempt at scaring people out of videotaping the police.
Watch as this incident unfolds. The person stopped knows his rights, and asserts them. At 2:10m into the video an officer that arrives late tells the person videotaping not to point the camera at him claiming it could be a “make shift” weapon.

However you feel on the issue. Copwatchers beware. This appears to be a tactic being implemented by people with suspect and dangerous intentions. Be careful, have each other’s backs. The cop in this video thought he could get away with murder. There are many more out there.
