    Deputies transgressions caught on videotape

    Which has the most weight in a court of law — the testimony of a law enforcement official, or that of an average, law-abiding citizen?

    A rare opportunity to see, and hear, how some San Luis Obispo County sheriff’s deputies view the U.S. Constitution is contained in a 22-minute “mini-documentary” on a news website just launched. That opportunity is presented by deputies themselves, talking into their shoulder microphones and standing in front of their vehicle-mounted cameras.

    In this case, the recordings tilt the argument in favor of the citizen… in a big way.

    Deputy Darren Murphy is featured in the first video report by KCCN.tv, a project of Central Coast News Agency. Murphy leads a squad of heavily armed deputies into the yard of a North County man, then into the man’s house , and ultimately, into a locked gun safe. Sheriff’s department recordings made by the deputies themselves clearly illustrate their lack of concern for individual rights; deputies can be overheard manufacturing reasons for the intrusion into the home, the gun safe, and for the pending arrest of longtime resident Matt Hart.

    The video report is the first of what Central Coast News Agency editor Daniel Blackburn says will be monthly offerings by the new Web site.

    Blackburn, who helped found CalCoastNews.com, cited “Deputy Murphy’s uncensored, darkly disturbing observations and behavior following his Code 3 arrival at the rural home of Hart. Those utterances were picked up by Murphy’s and other deputies’ own recorders,” Blackburn said.

    “Those recordings provide a rare, frighteningly revealing, behind-the-scenes perspective of how one local law enforcement agency views the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and other laws its personnel are sworn to uphold,” he said.

    the video

    Did I see right. This happened in '08? Has there been any further litigation? What has happened to Mr. Hart, and what has happened to those... cops ?

    Those LEO's are "Imposter's in their office", and are taking wages under faults pretences, and thats faults.
    They sware an oath, and that also is a "Breach of oath, to the people and is a fraud".
    They should be fired, and the PD sued.

    Despicable. I am truly at a loss for words. All these deputies and this department need to be held to account. This is outrageous. I hope this guy has an excellent lawyer and single handedly cleans up that department for good.

    The Constitution is meaningless to far too many people in positions of authority. The truths we hold to be self-evident are in peril like never before, they are in peril from within.

    ETA: Did anyone else experience a couple of audio drops in the video?

    UPDATE: July 28, 2010

    http://www.kccn.tv/

    This (above) site has attracted more than 1.7 million hits from visitors in 94 countries across the world since it launched 13 days ago. Substantial initial interest was generated locally by CalCoastNews.com; then, the state's largest gun owners' forum, CalGuns.net, got heavily involved in discussing the issue, posing possible solutions, and helping broadcast the site's debut 22-minute video internationally. CalGun's members' comments are now approaching 1,000 in number, and the group is one of several helping to spearhead varied efforts to assist Matt Hart. And when the video was discussed by Dave Congalton on his Home Town Radio show on 920 KVEC July 20, unique visits to KCCN.tv increased by tens of thousands within hours. Activity on the site has not yet slowed. The editors are gratified by this display of universal interest in protecting rapidly-eroding Constitutional freedoms.
