Should the Police…

…Be allowed to enforce a politician’s verbal restriction against making a video of him at an open meeting?

Politicians are supposed to represent the people. Therefore, when they talk in public they should be expressing ideas favorable to the people. If they do not want to be videoed it becomes suspicious as to whether or not the politician has something to hide.

As an individual the politician does have the right to not be videoed, just as much as you or I do. However, while performing his job as a representative of the people, they should be able to see and hear him nation-wide.

  1. What about freedom of press? If the meeting is in public, they do not have the right to restrict anyone from video taping or photographing them. Private property is another story though.
