An Oregon deputy claimed it was illegal to record him before arresting a man who had been recording a traffic stop from a considerable distance.
The Klamath County sheriffís deputy had walked up to the man after having pulled over the manís girlfriend.
Here is the exchange that took place:
Deputy: †Whatís your name?It is not clear from the Youtube description what the man was charged with, but I sent him a message and commented on the video in the hopes he will respond.
But it has already been established that citizens have the right to record cops in Oregon because they do not have an expectation of privacy in public, even though they tried to pretend otherwise a few years ago.
