    More police abuse, this time from the Lew Rockwell blog:

    Tried to photograph, cops responded by trying to fabricate an arrest for "interfering".

    The photograph accompanying that article certainly supports Buehler, not the cops.

    I just can't get a handle on why police are so afraid of a camera. If they have nothing to hide.............

    It's a power thing for them. They want absolute control. And - they're used to being able to stomp on people and get any charges dropped by backing each other up. Having a camera record everything shows they're lying.

    If I was a LEO seems like I would want others to film me while working. That would help to defend any claims of wrong doing on my part.

    Methinks a guilty conscience is probably involved here.

    That makes a lot of sense for the honest ones. Some even carry shirt pocket or vest cameras to document their activities for exactly that reason.

    It should be manadatory for all law enforcement officers and rent-a-cops.

    And this in a city whose police department is currently in the middle of a long overdue (IMHO) investigation into its abuse of force practices.
