Cops have been put on notice: Let the cameras roll.
Camera-shy cops across the city were reminded they can’t legally take action to stop someone from filming them while they’re on the beat, the Daily News has learned. The refresher was provided in a memo the chief of department’s office distributed to all police commands Wednesday.
“Members of the public are legally allowed to record police interactions,” the memo states. “Intentional interference such as blocking or obstructing cameras or ordering the person to cease constitutes censorship and also violates the First Amendment.”
Cops can take action if videographers and shutterbugs “interfere with police operations,” the memo notes.
spread this like wildfire
when you see abuse, take out your phone and film that shit.
Post it on youtube, send it to the news, let the whole world hear about it.
Just be careful. It is actually illegal in some states.
In thirty-eight states it is explicitly legal to film on-duty police in public.
Twelve states—California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and Washington—require the consent of all parties for you to record a conversation.
However, all but 2 of these states—Massachusetts and Illinois—have an “expectation of privacy provision” to their all-party laws that courts have ruled does not apply to on-duty police (or anyone in public). In other words, it’s technically legal in those 48 states to openly record on-duty police.

Don’t forget to use the Bambuser app just in case the cop you’re filming decides to blatantly break the law!
Stop reblogging that post about calling.emaling McCulloch to take the Mike Brown case. The protestors do not want him prosecuting the case due to his multiple familial ties to the police department. (Source 1, 2, 3)
So repeat, do not email or call McCulloch to take the case. He will be unfairly biased in favor of the police.
Reblogging this and deleting the post from yesterday.
And don’t forget to use the Bambuser app to stream and record online in case the police illegally confiscate or destroy your phone.
So next time you’re in a situation where you are recording an officer and fear for the safety of your video evidence, try using the Bambuser app.
It uploads your video online to your Bambuser account while you record it. You can also stream the video live. This way your videos are saved online, safe from the hands of the uniformed pigs.

Here is the link to sign the petition… https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/mike-brown-law-requires-all-state-county-and-local-police-wear-camera/8tlS5czf
see this makes more sense, change.org wouldn’t do shit but here the government HAS to look at it
Fuck yes I’ll sign this.
Help the fight against police brutality!
You should definitely do this, but please be safe and knowledgeable about it! Here are some resources for how to safely film/photograph police brutality, as well as information on YOUR rights as you do so:
Please be aware that different states have different laws on the matter. Check into them so you can know you specific laws, and what to expect if you film the police. Also check with your state’s chapter of the ACLU; many of them have tips on this matter, and some have pocket foldouts of your rights that you can use to convince the police that no, you aren’t doing anything wrong.
LITERALLY how can this petition possibly still be struggling to break 70k signatures?? are you against more measures to keep cops from killing black people in the streets? in their own homes? please signal boost this petition to all your social media sites.
This is the petition literally:
"Petitioning President Barack Obama: Please Enact New Federal Laws to Protect Citizens from Police Violence and Misconduct"
Signal boost the shit out of this.
Mike Brown’s killer is Bryant P. Willman going as Scooby Willman on Facebook
As the world watches the events unfolding in Ferguson, many people have thought “how can I help?”. As a public school teacher, my first thought is always…
Sorry for the interruption of satire. But, this is important. Help feed kids with food instabilities who are missing out on school meals because of school closings due to the problem in Ferguson.
Did I already reblog this? I’m reblogging again. Kids shouldn’t have to go hungry just because the police lost their racists minds.
I heard this on the radio. Mike Brown was a kid who didn’t want to play football, even though he had the body for it. When asked why, he told his friends that he didn’t want to hit anybody.
This is the child that they’re going to paint as a thug.
Make. This. Known.
Chicago tomorrow is going to be really really ugly the timing of this is deliberate PLEASE stay safe
what’s happening there?
CPD, FBI, and Illinois State Troopers are going into “troubled neighborhoods” to hunt down criminals for the next 60 days or so.
SPREAD THIS LIKE FIRE. POLICE IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE FBI AND CPD ARE CONDUCTING MASS PROFILING AND OCCUPATIONS OF RESIDENTIAL AREAS. THEY ARE TARGETING BLACK AMERICANS.
Like everyone else has said: this isn’t a coincidence and “criminals” is code for Black Americans. Please stay safe.
Apparently, in an attempt to paint Michael Brown as anything less than innocent, people have been spreading an image of an armed 17-year-old Joda Cain around the web and claiming that it’s Michael Brown.
Joda Cain is accused of murder in my home state of Oregon, and has literally jack shit to do with the Michael Brown murder in Ferguson, Missouri. THESE ARE NOT THE SAME PEOPLE. Anyone using the above image as “proof” that Michael Brown “deserved” to be shot should be called out for defamation, and promptly thrown down a spiral staircase.
The bottom photo is the real Michael Brown. He was called a “gentle giant” by friends and family. He was unarmed and innocent, and he was murdered by a police officer after being shot more than seven times at close range. Witnesses, including a friend who was with him at the time of the shooting, all agree that he was doing nothing deserving of such violent actions from the officer who gunned him down.
I know white republicans are gonna eat that top image up because y’all know we all look the same to them.
