Here in the United States citizens are allowed to record police contacts, so that’s exactly what I did. I was picking up garbage in the community and I had been doing this for about two weeks. That’s when I came across two Centralia Police Officers, one of these police officers knowingly lied on video and told me that he didn’t know that I had a camera. The video proof is very clear the police officer’s lied and claimed they didn’t know I had a camera. Then the officer told me I was breaking the law by recording him.
What I recorded this particular night is very disturbing, these two police officers knowingly and willingly lied and tried to tell me that I was breaking the law for recording them. Here’s the problem I see with this incident. If police officers are willing to lie on video like this, then how are they supposed to be trusted in a court of law? The fact that I captured this video questions the integrity of any statements that these officers make in the future. I know if I was facing a criminal lawsuit, I would want a Jury to see what these two officers are capable of doing. Credibility is what the community depends upon when it comes to our local police department and after viewing a factual video like this, one can only wonder if these two officer are credible. You be the Judge
