Dear PoliceOne Member,

We've all noticed - and made mention of in this space - the steady increase in the number of civilian-shot videos of police-related incidents. Obviously, this has brought with it a lot of problems for law enforcement - many of them due to videos that selectively or inaccurately represent an arrest situation.

With some prosecutors cracking down on those who film by claiming wiretap violations, a recent TIME editorial made the case that it shouldn't be illegal for citizens to videotape officers in public. Early on, P1 members seem to be split on Facebook and P1 - some feeling it poses a risk to officer safety, and others remarking that it's an inevitable byproduct of a 'Big Brother' reality.

So what do you think? Leave your thoughts in the article comments section.
