The New York Police Department’s Chief of Departments reminded city police “that they can’t legally take action to stop someone from filming them, unless that person is interfering with police operations,” reports the New York Daily News (hat tip to Paul Hsieh). I’m of the opinion that all public police actions should be video recorded by the police as well as by any public spectator who wishes to turn on a camera. It’s safer for the cops (except for the corrupt ones), and it’s safer for the public.
