‘The video captured a Georgia sheriff’s deputy’s unlawful disregard for the First Amendment.
A trucker driving through Georgia was stopped by WCSO deputy J. Rozier. In an effort to hold his detaining officer accountable, Carl Eastman, decided to film his traffic stop.
As Rozier asks for Eastman’s bill of lading and ID, he then asks him if he’d mind putting down his camera.
“I have the right to record,” explains Eastman.
But this Georgia deputy was apparently unfamiliar with the first amendment and began to threaten Eastman if he did not stop recording.
“I’m gonna ask you one more time or you gonna be charged with disorderly conduct,” says Rozier as he unlawfully threatens to arrest a man for practicing what has been deemed a right by multiple courts.
It has been clearly established that all Americans have the right to record the police.
Apparently deputy Rozier doesn’t know about the power of the internet and social media in exposing cops who deprive others of their rights. Share this article with your friends and family to show these rights violating law enforcement officers the power that we the people have to expose this nonsense’ /source/
Well, what the fuck is this? Incompetence? Ain’t think so, I guess the cops just feel complete impunity. Of course, this asshole knows about the first amendment. He just don’t give a fuck bout it. He knows that he won’t be punished. I mean, he thinks so. Social media is a great tool in modern American life, a tool to ensure that freaks like this got what they deserve.
