War on Cameras

Dallas Cop Suspended For Busting Biker Over Videorecording

If you're going to behave badly, don't do it in front of a camera

The Dallas Sheriff's deputy who arrested a motorcyclist on Memorial Day after he refused to hand over his video camera as evidence against other bikers was suspended today for more than a month without pay, which is more punishment than we normally see in these incidents.

Deputy James Westbrook will serve a 38-day unpaid suspension for pulling over Chris Moore, then telling him he was going to seize his helmet camera as evidence against other bikers, some who were apparently speeding and driving recklessly.
