In a three-minute Youtube video, San Rafael police Sergeant Scott Eberle proves why we should never hesitate to record our interactions with police officers.
It started when a photographer, who asked not to be identified out of fear of police retaliation, stepped out of a restaurant July 24 and spotted an ambulance and some type of emergency situation.
Thinking a car had struck a bicyclist, he walked up and started snapping photos with his cell phone from a respectable distance.
He was immediately accosted by Eberle. …
That was when the man switched his phone to video mode and lifted it to the cop's face.
Eberle was suddenly all smiles.
