    Judge: Dash cam not subject to Okla. open records laws

    Do you see a problem with this? If you KNOW you are being recorded (ie,dashcam), why act the fool? All dashcams can be considered evidence because crimes MAY have been recorded. What happened to "transparent"

    The dash cam footage would be available as evidence in a court proceeding. That it would not be available to anyone is a privacy issue. Allowing anyone to have access to others interaction with the police would be an invasion of the private citizen. As long as the recording is available to support legal proceedings, that is enough in my opinion, yours may vary.

    The dash cam would IMO be evidence that could be subpoenaed for a trial - edited to only show the interaction with you.

    Wouldnt it be awesome if there were live dash cam links where you could view officers real time while they are on patrol, and recorded dash cams up to a week back stored that you could review from a specific time and date?

    So I guess we should have no access to court documents, arrest records, police reports, mug shots... Why stop there? How about no more 911 calls.

    No access to dash cam recordings means no news reports on police corruption, false arrests, excessive use of force... No more police videos of OCers getting arrested for exercising their 2A right.

    What about the hundreds of dash cam videos that were posted BEFORE there was a trial? Videos that forced investigation and then litigation?





    Guess we never should have been able to see this. Because it was an invasion of a private citizen's privacy.

    or this... Never would have seen the light of day because there was no court proceeding.

    Claremore Police Chief Stan Brown testified that it would be a "travesty of justice" for videotapes to be a part of the Open Records Act, saying that some contain the most "intimate, personal, private information of a person's life."
    I guess this is what he means.

    Should I continue?

    If the public never had access to that video that cop would still be working in Seattle.
