    It's a disgrace. If a police office can't tell you what law you're breaking (in this case none), then they should not be able to touch you or your property.

    One possible reason--they don't want to be assassinated by cameras! icon_lol.gif

    If you haven't seen it, Kurt Weill's opera Der Zar lässt sich photographieren is very funny.

    Bi god the damn cop wouldn't have gotten my camera, and if the dumb ass decided to try arresting me, he'd be showing me some written law that I was breaking, and I'd have demanded it so loud while requesting his superior, they would all want to crawl in some cracks from embarassment. This guys was probably of the type that just 'got him some power' and was itching to use it for the first time. LOL !!

    I believe if the people wanted to push something like this, the damn congressman would have some answering to do. From now on Ohio residents should show up and in mass start taking pictures, make it part of their protest for such communistic bullshit.

    I posted this on Facebook and my uncle who is a former NYPD cop and current Tea Bagger agreed with me.

    I'm going to have to side with the police on this one. Labeling all the other places as public makes you think that a camera should be allowed. However, if you think about it --- You can't really go into any public school building where you do not have business. It's not truly in the open air sense of public where it would be a factor I tend to agree.

    The federal government, states and many localities have rules governing the use of cameras and still photography. One of those is often that you must have a permit to use the camera. It's something the courts have upheld. It's not a limit on free speech.

    I DO think that people should be able to film town meetings, and citing security concerns and just blindly following what others tell him to do is not good law enforcement practice. There is a time for every officer to question what he/she has to do and while that is not a debate with who they are arresting, it should be a debate with whoever his supervisor may be.

    Adam, the "rule" was made up on the spot.
    http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/08/24/1010315/-Rep-Steve-Chabot-has-Police-Confiscate-Video-Cameras-Cell-Phones-from-Constituents-at-Town-Hall
    "A Chabot spokesman said they had the cameras seized “to protect the privacy of constituents” at the event, although there were at least two media outlets at the North Avondale Recreation Center filming the meeting."

    "While the Ohio open records law does not specifically state whether you can use recording devices at a public meeting (i.e., a meeting of a governmental body required to be open to the public by law), the Ohio Attorney General has an issued an opinion stating that using them is permissible when it does not unduly interfere with the meeting. As a matter of practice, recording devices apparently are common in Ohio public meetings."

    If anything, the seizure of the cameras interfered more with the public meeting than the attempted amateur filming of the Congressman.

    sxydrkhair saidI am sorry, Police was doing his job... When you see a sign or anywhere that say no Camaras are allowed. That means Camaras are not ALLOWED. You have to respect the laws. That what make you a good citizen. Even they told him so.


    Job?

    When asked what "law" they were breaking he said "THEY" don't want it
    and he put the cellphones on the staffers desk

    Since when did the police become republican tax paid security guards???
