    Pretty interesting. News cameras do it all the time. When in public you have no reasonable right to privacy. He will win that case. The dual party consent laws were really meant for telecommunications.

    How bout police dash cams?

    That's bizarre! I don't see where the police have a leg to stand on and frankly should be embarassed as there was absolutely no reason for him to pull a gun.

    No disrespect to any police officers, but how do they figure he was unaware that he was being recorded with that big thing strapped to the guys head. Also, if you step out of an unmarked POS with a gun at your side in Florida and do not have a badge in your hand be prepared for the outcome. I cant speak for anyone else, but I legally have the right to carry my gun and Florida law protects me when I am in or on my vehicle at any point I feel threatened. The police officer was a threat in this instance and taking 5 seconds to announce himself as an officer would have been 3.5 seconds to long.
    I do respect all law enforcement officers out there, but he should have came out with his badge first then his gun or at minimum both of them. I dont know what the officers status was but this was a rookie mistake and he is lucky he pulled over someone that wasnt armed.

    And just think none of this would have happened if he had been obeying the law by not speeding and wheeling down the highway.

    I agree, but any police officer will tell you there is a right and wrong way to approach any suspect when you are out of uniform. Badge first or badge and gun at the same time if the suspect poses a threat. This guy did not pose a threat to the officer.

    Give him a ticket, take away the dumb arses drivers license..... BUT, he didn't intentionately tape the cop... The cop put himself in a situation to be taped. Let that charge slide.

    But if you ride like an arse you shouldn't be on the public streets.....
