Cop To Student Recording Him: "Shut That Fucking Thing Off Before I Slap You"

• Photography Is Not a Crime
A UMass Lowell police officer proved to nothing but a thug with a badge when he threatened a student for recording him in public.

"Shut that fucking thing off before I slap you," the unidentified cop told UMass Lowell student Brendan Brown.

Brown knew he had every right to record, but he also knew the cop wasn't bluffing, so he turned his cell phone camera off.

 So, what's new, Doc?

  About all that anyone can hope for is that the "kid" will someday be big enough and strong enough to kick the cop's ass, which is the least that should happen to anyone who verbally, physically, or emotionally abuses a child. If this assails your sensibilities...Terrific!

  As for the cop, I can't even begin to tell you what I really believe...This is a family site.

How about photography insurance? - Government regulated, of course.

 Idea:
Someone (cop block?) offer a defense fund membership for say $100 that could be used by videographer's for either legal defense or to sue civilly for violation of rights.
