    Cop in unmarked car pulls gun on Motorist

    This was ridiculous:




    The cop actually tried to get the guy on wiretapping charges because he was recording his escapade on his motorcycle. Luckily, the judge dismissed that charge because it should be dismissed. I can't believe cops think they can just get away with whatever they want. A cop can't just exit their car on the street and pull a gun on someone. They tape us, we can tape them.

    Score one for the good guys. Not that we think police in general are bad guys or anything, but after watching this video of a Maryland state trooper jumping out of his unmarked car in plain clothes while brandishing a gun, we're not exactly keen to put him in the good guy category, either.

    In any case, Anthony Graber, a man who was out shooting video of his (not exactly completely legal) motorcycling exploits when he was confronted by the aforementioned officer, was charged with felony wiretapping for recording the state trooper's actions when being pulled over.

    According to the Baltimore Sun, Judge Emory A. Pitt Jr. has thrown out the wiretapping charge, leaving Graber only to answer for his traffic violations. Why? Common sense, it would seem, has prevailed. The judge ruled that police officers shouldn't have an expectation of privacy when engaged in a traffic stop. He said, in part:
    Those of us who are public officials and are entrusted with the power of the state are ultimately accountable to the public. When we exercise that power in public fora, we should not expect our actions to be shielded from public observation.

    One episode of the The Wire lets you know what Maryland cops are about. The guys who put that show together spent their lives either as cops in Baltimore or as reporters.
