Miami Cops Order Man to Stop Recording Traffic Fatality Investigation

  1. Taylor Hardy, whose escapade with a raging Miami-Dade paramedic went viral in March, was told by a pair of Miami police officers that he was not allowed to shoot video or take photos of a traffic fatality investigation earlier today.
    Knowing they would not hesitate to arrest him, he stopped recording and moved across the street to continue recording.
    “I know i was well within my rights but, being in fear of being arrested and knowing that a man lost his life, I walked [​IMG]away,” Hardy explained in a Facebook message.
    Plus, he is scheduled to drive to Jacksonville in the morning, so a night in jail would have ruined those plans.
    Hardy said the five-car accident left one man dead and several others injured. The body was already beneath a tarp.
    The officer who yelled at him was named Robinson.
    Despite what she or the detective said, there is no law against video recording a deceased accident victim from a public street. Many people might find it disrespectful but doesn’t make it less journalistic.
    Check out Hardy’s run-in with a paramedic that went viral.
