Two questions in one thread (to save space):
Question one: The police must have RAS to detain you and demand ID. If they want to verify that you are old enough to carry a firearm, is that RAS in the state of PA?
Question two: What is the PA law on videotaping public officials? Is it protected or can they order you to turn it off? Also, most importantly, can the police say that your videotaping of them is filming others in the background inadvertently who may not want to be filmed, and thus you must shut the camera off because of them?
So by this we could probably tape police, since they have no expectation of privacy, but my question is, could they say that people in the background have expectation, and thus, capturing their images is unlawful without their consent, and you would of course be inadvertently capturing other people's images through filming a cop in public? I was under the impression that actually capturing someone's image was also a crime (hence why people are blurred out often in news filmings, but then again, they don't do that on the public street when they film).
That's just some bull$hit the police will try and say so you won't videorecord them. The truth is, no one has the expectation of privacy in public places, so getting someone's image on video isn't against the law. And no, verifying your age doesn't provide RAS for the police to ID you.
Givin' up the tactical advantage since 2008.
