The difference is that you'd get prosecuted for shooting the cameraman.

Also, your employer probably has some sort of camera system in place for his protection and yours (if not, a lot of businesses do). When I fire up my cameraphone during a police encounter, thats exactly what I'm doing. Keep in mind, video records both sides of the encounter not just one or the other.

Camera system in place largely to prevent crime and protect his employees and workplace property. They are not recording to be uploaded to social media so that some youtuber can twist words and try their hardest to make the cop sound wrong and incompetent. Imagine your job was being recorded so that millions of people could watch you do it and evaluate how qualified you are to do your job.

These are people with jobs that already put themselves out in harms way. I think this is awful treatment of them. Make them wear a body cam, if it works. stop recording them to shame them over the Internet

Assholes get shamed on the internet all the time. If a cop isn't being an asshole, then the video probably isn't worth it to upload. Maybe asshole cops would be more likely to treat people with respect if they knew they'd get called out for it rather than just humiliating people into silence.

Imagine your job was being recorded so that millions of people could watch you do it and evaluate how qualified you are at your job.

If that was the case, then I'd probably learn how not to be an asshole to people in my line of work. Something my employer expects I do anyways.

I wouldn't want to go that far. I'll admit that it's a distraction and can get annoying, but there is still such a thing as an excessive response.

I am taking it that far. These are people with enough stress in their job as it is. People think it's smart to agitate them further and stick cameras all over them all the time.
