Officer on duty. Public Offical. Subject to being recorder at all times. By the authority vested in each one. They give up their right to privacy from being recorded on the job.

Go sue Walmart. Just because some bullie smart azz perfers not to get caught, acting beyond rules of conduct, that dose not grant any officer an exception.

All can be recorded any time any place while on duty. An remember government recording devices are every where. Individuals also have rights FIRST, which means by taking the job as a police officer YOUR rights come second to all citizens...

Looking forward to catching one of you bullies messing up on the job. You will be a greeter at Walmart, for your next job. Reather then Dog Catcher.
