I overheard the cop talking to the driver after running his info and heard “suspended license”. The cop ended up just writing a ticket and leaving. After the cop left, the driver called me over. I jogged over and he thanked me for filming, saying he would likely be in handcuffs if I hadn’t been filming.
That is why we film. Even with a garbage phone camera, the cops change their tune and walk a different beat when the cameras are on them.
Always film the police, it might save someone a trip to jail or it might even save a life. You don’t know until after you’ve started filming.
