Well it depends on what state you live in. If you live in New York, Gay folks can now get married, but you can still get arrested for filming the cops arresting somebody (like this).
But if you live in Florida, both could probably land you in jail.
Join us for the first episode of the second season of Let’s Talk About It! as we talk about Marriage Equality, Same Sex Marriage, Gay Marriage, living In sin or whatever the hell you call it…just tune in and call in! Is the victory in New York a victory for you or a sign of the decline of Western Civilization? What does it mean for other states like Florida?
In the past year, dozens of people have been arrested for filming the police while on duty. Some like Anthony Graber, a sergeant with the Maryland Air National Guard, almost faced 16 years in prison just for filming police as they were pulling him over. The story hit close to home in Miami when on Memorial Day weekend, Narces Benoit filmed police firing 100 shots into a car of a man who led them on a dangerous high speed chase. Benoit and his girlfriend were arrested, but later let go for filming what you see below (note: the film is intense). Why are people being arrested for filming the police? Is it people’s right to film the police while they are on duty or does filming the police make us all less safe? Join us as we talk about two topics that hit at the heart of what rights we have and don’t have.
