So when I am out and about living my life, I have no expectation of privacy.
Go to Lowes, they can video tape me. Go to work, they can video tape me. Drive through a toll booth, they can video tape me. Drive on the highway and have a member of the LEO community take notice, they can video tape me.
Now lets say said LEO decides to pull me over. How does that suddenly become a private situation? Is said LEO no longer taping the event with his /her dash cam? Does the LEO have a duty and responsibility to inform me that I am being taped?
In case you aren’t sure, the answer is no to both questions.
So why is it that if I have a Gopro pointed at the driver side window, I am potentially a felon? If some random stranger decides to video tape the encounter (third party), that is legal; but as an active participant, somehow I am not allowed to self protect with video. Help me understand how that makes sense?
