[FOLLOW UP] The Cop Who Told The Uber-Driving Lawyer Recording Him Is Illegal Just Got Demoted

Submitted by: fancylad 3 weeks ago News & Politics


You all remember Sergeant Kenneth Baker, right? He was the bully cop who either has no idea about North Carolina's laws when it comes to a person's right to records cops or he's just another obese, garden-variety dirty cop. My guess is that he's both. IAB covered the incident here.

Anyhoo, Becker, a 17-year veteran of the department, was deservedly demoted from sergeant to corporal this past Wednesday. He'll see a pay cut of $1.38 an hour after a video of his encounter with Bright was posted on Facebook last month.

For the record, you CAN record on-duty cops and you should, just to cover your ass.

The Uber driver can, sovereign of the regulate department, file a centralized civil rights grievance against the representative via startup explainer videos the agency for Civil Rights.

Do you know what has always rubbed me the wrong way?  Most police officers are allowed to lie to you in any way that they want, yet it is an illegal, chargable offense, if you lie to a police officer.

For the record, not only can one record on duty cops, one can record everything and everyone that one can see in public - smart to do it from a place of public access though.

The current reward system for the police encourages this kind of mentality.
-how many tickets
-how much seizure
-how fast did you charge someone
not
-how many folks assisted
-now many crimes prevented

The ultimate goal of policing is to influence the community, so that policing isn't required.  i.e. cops, just like doctors, should be aiming to put themselves out of a job.

Cameras have helped a lot with police, the bad one's are getting noticed and the complaints against the rest tend to go down. Cops like this are all over but it might be interesting to compare this type of cop with http://city-salaries.careertrends.com/stories/5583/worst-paying-cities-for-police

Why are common citizens always hassling our fine young cops with their spy cameras and cell phones. It makes a cop almost afraid to club anyone down anymore

"What is the law?", "Step out of the car." Crappy law enforcement at it's best.
