Very recently, a motorcycle rider caught some action that led to very unfortunate consequences. You can see it all here:

CNN etc. are saying that the footage is helping them sort out what happened. They're glad to have the footage.

Back to our discussion about legality and cameras:

I've seen too many cases where a cop pulls a guy over for something silly like leaving his visor up and cuffs him for not turning off his helmet cam. But when they need our help, they're glad to use our footage!

(Guess you can't tell I have an issue with cops lately.)

By the way - I think there's blame on both sides here. The biker that got his wheel tapped by the SUV was being careless. But the SUV guy had no call to plow over a guy. And then there's the beating - that wasn't cool. Bad scene all the way around that gives us sedate riders a bad name.

Apparently several bikers were in the process of slashing his tires when he took off.  I'm not sure I'd be able to just sit there either, and I doubt anyone could say for sure what they'd do in the same situation.  What were they going to do after they were done with the tires?  His wife & child were in the car with him.  I don't think the whole story has come out yet.
