    This guy is totally exercising his rights, but at the same time comes off as a huge d-bag when all the cops are trying to do is their job. Either way, for some reason I can't stop watching these types of videos.

    "You're not wrong Walter, you're just an *******!" comes to mind.

    It's not against the law to be an *******, but now those cops are going to be in a bad/pissy mood, which will come down on someone else.

    Yeah, the first time I watched it I had the mindset of "wow these cops won't leave him alone, he knows his rights."

    The second time, I thought to myself it did seem like odd behavior. The guy obviously only did that to get attention and cause a scene. Not to mention take time away from the cops who could be doing better things with their time.

    I agree. He's less interested in protecting/flaunting his rights than he is getting YouTube views.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Yeah, just because something is legal doesn't mean you won't be called out on it. Walking around a police campus filming with no prior consent is definitely suspicious. They handled it with extreme professionalism.

    And let's be honest, we live in America. You can safely give a cop your name and address and not be worried he is gonna show up in the middle of the night and beat the **** out of you.

    I wonder how P. Barnes would have handled that situation?

    Re: Anyone else get a kick out of amendment right activist videos?

    As someone who has worked in several public facilities where we are responsible for the protection of the public I have many times stopped someone who appears to be taking video or still pictures for no discernable reason. I have done this both where security was part of my purview and when I didn't have security as part of my job. Every since Murrah, we all realized we have to be much more careful. It is irresponsible to not check things out when something suspicious is observed; thousands of lives could be in the balance.

    Re: Anyone else get a kick out of amendment right activist videos?

    While I agree his purpose there was to get this reaction if the cops were performing their job appropriately he wouldn't have been able to get this reaction. The way the video was obtained doesn't really change the fact that the police weren't acting appropriately.

    What the police need to realize is they are here to protect and serve. That means a much better way would have been to ask if they could help him find what he was looking for. Then when he said what he was doing and he didn't need help they should have left him alone.

    I can't remember exactly but when that boy scout thing came up a month or so ago I saw an ACLU guide on where filming was allowed and if I remember correctly it says that they believe all public land can be filmed.

    I think as long as it's a two party state? Some states you have to have consent of the person you're filming. Of course I admit, I know little about the law besides what I read in books/watch on TV.

    Heres the link. I guess I don't really know either, but he wasn't interfering with them doing their jobs and he wasn't committing a crime as far as I know.

    My biggest problem is if they would have just asked if he needed help or left him alone then there wouldn't have been a video and he wouldn't have done anything to harm anyone.

    Security didn't want to ask the difficult question about suspicious activity including photography of a building and parking garage here too.

    They take a real problem and make people view it as almost satire. It desensitizes people when they see "oppressed people being dicks for no reason."
