A video surfaced this week showing a Boston police sergeant, seemingly upset that he was being video-recorded, confront the videographer and wave a suspect’s gun in his face.

When the videographer attempts to point his camera at the officer’s face, the cop orders him to turn it away.

I’m not giving you my permission to film,” he says.

After the Glik case established that recording police officers is protected by the First Amendment, the Boston Police Department adopted a policy acknowledging this fact. The department even produced a training video on the public’s right to record police.

Get a real close video of this,” the cop says, shoving the gun in front of the man’s camera. "See that? That’s why we’re here.

Looks like a plastic gun, as in, a toy.

I wonder if there's an app that can fix that, shoot the video holding the phone vertically, but it records horizontally.

Somebody buy this and try it out.

Horizon lets you shoot horizontal videos regardless of how you hold your device. You can rotate the camera from vertical to horizontal and back again, and the aspect ratio remains the same. How does it do this? It’s all thanks to your device’s gyroscope, which auto-levels the video to ensure it remains constant.

Someone pointing a gun, or something that looks like a gun, at you has to be treated as a deadly threat.
Dumbass cop is lucky to be alive. Hopefully he rethinks this kind of shit before it backfires on him.
