A man videotaping Baltimore County police as they arrested two people was approached by at least two different officers and not only angrily threatened with arrest, but told he had no rights.
The man asked the officers several times what he was doing wrong. When he tried to remind them “I have my rights,” things quickly went downhill, with one angry cop responding: “You just lost them.”
Police gone wild? Or was the man filming the arrests in the wrong?
Here’s what followed: The man was not arrested. County police officials say they recognize and respect the rights of citizens to film officers on duty in a public place, unless the person filming has violated a law or statute, and that they are investigating the altercation.
