Police state - Public can no longer film the police.



A video of a cop shoving a cyclist - he might get up to 4 years in prison for falsifying evidence.
A good job there was a member of the public videoing him!

But wait - that's illegal in the UK.
We can't film the police anymore, so that above situation if it happened now in the UK?
The cyclist would be going to prison.

I can't wait for the first news report of people getting arrested for photographing the police.
How long do you think it will be?
