    WILMINGTON, N.C. -- When police stopped an Uber driver to detain his passenger last month, he immediately turned on his cellphone and started recording.

    The officers demanded he turn off his phone, citing a reportedly non-existent state law, but what they didn't know was that Jesse Bright was a defense attorney – moonlighting as a driver to make some extra cash in an effort to pay off his student loans. Now, one of the officers involved has been demoted.

    I was a police supervisor. I always told my subordinates to imagine that they were always being videotaped. That way they were always aware of their behavior. Unless a person is interfering with the officers or their actions are distracting to the point of endangering the officer there is no reason to prevent a citizen from recording an officers actions.

    There was a video of US Deputy Marshal walking up to a woman and smacking a cell phone out of her hand because she was the recording the agents. She was at least a half a block away and was in no way interfering with their actions. Fortunately, a person across the street recorded the whole thing from a second story window. I don’t know what, if anything happened to the marshal, but personally I think that he should have been arrested for battery and disciplined by the agency.
