Cop: ‘You Must Be Doing Something Wrong If You Invoke Your Rights’
Two people were filming where prisoners were being taken in and out of the Duval County, Florida courthouse when a couple of officers from the Jacksonville police department tried to stop them.[su_center_ad]
In the video, one of the officers tells the cameramen this is a “secure area” and asks why they are filming.
One cameraman says, “I am filming in a public space.”
The officer then wants to know the cameraman’s name and why he refuses to tell him (the officer) why he is filming.
According to TheFreeThoughtProject.com, when the cameraman says he wants to “remain silent,” the police officer appears to laugh and says, “You must be doing something wrong if you invoke your rights.”
The officer then doubles down on his bizarre claim and refuses to show the cameraman the statute that bans people from filming prisoners entering and leaving the sally port.
Eventually, the officers leave the scene and allow the men to film.
