As the technology continues to advance, the police as well as the public should be aware they can no longer rely on their actions not being recorded and used against them in court.

One should never go to a protest without recording equipment. Authorities hate that, however: They will harass you for having the equipment, and they will seek vengeance for those who record them misbehaving.

Visit the ACLU site for recommended procedures. The ACLU provides an automatic back up facility for your recordings at public events. Unfortunately, it is necessary to protect citizens' rights.

At Occupy events, police often confiscated recording equipment and illegally excluded press from areas.
