This is so prevalent in the MFM that it needs to be posted and rebutted.
It is NOT illegal to film cops! Never has been.
Now the First Circuit has ruled that to be the case. It is NOT illegal to film cops.
Cops have been know to harass people that are filming them and trying to convince them that it is illegal to film them. That is either willful ignorance, or just a straight out lie. I tend to lean towards the latter.

Appeals Court Rules It Is Not Illegal To Film Police

Americans still being arrested for recording cops as a consequence of mass hoax
Despite the mass hoax still being promulgated by both the mainstream media and local authorities across America, the First Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that it is not illegal for citizens to videotape police officers when they are on public duty.
“The filming of government officials while on duty is protected by the First Amendment, said the Court,” reports Daily Tech.
“The filming of government officials engaged in their duties in a public place, including police officers performing their responsibilities, fits comfortably within these principles [of protected First Amendment activity].,” said the Court. “Gathering information about government officials in a form that can readily be disseminated to others serves a cardinal First Amendment interest in protecting and promoting the free discussion of governmental affairs,” stated the ruling, adding that this has been the case all along, and that the right to film police officers is not just restricted to the press.
