I think its an interesting concept worth looking into. I just haven't paid that much attention to recording technology.
Well if it doesn't look like it's going your way there is always the Rosemary Woods syndrome. erase the last 18 1/2 minutes. :biggrin:Bumper said:I think you would have to be very careful using an audio/video recording device. It might help clear you, it might help hang you.
I agree. The sad thing is, that might be just about how it would go.RSSZ said:Prosecutor, "Mr. Smith,why did you have a voice recorder on and recording ? Did you know/anticipate that you were going to gun down someone today? ETC. ETC. ETC. ETC. You get the picture.
As long as you are a part of the conversation you are generally okay in this respect.Scott said:Isn't there an issue with recording someone else in public without their knowledge.
I'm a little surprised that so many think a recording would prove we were in the wrong instead of corroborating or confirming our innocence.havegunjoe said:I'd rather not be recorded, audio or video. Remember what your state of mind might be if attacked. You're never sure what might come out of your mouth and I'd rather there wasn't a recording to dispute my recollection of the events.
Perhaps it would be better to say that the recorded information could be used against us. It doesn't have to prove we were in the wrong to be used against us. We could be absolutely in the right, but have our words or actions turned against us, as some have suggested. I wouldn't want a recording that could be played back for the same reason I have the right to remain silent.Tangle said:I'm a little surprised that so many think a recording would prove we were in the wrong instead of corroborating or confirming our innocence...
That works until the police decide to search/handcuff you until they sort things out and voila, they find it in your pocket and hit the "play" button. If they hear it before you and your lawyer, you might be in for some trouble.ArmyCop said:Get it - if you get into a situation and use it you might should "forget" about having the recording till you check with your lawer first & see if he\she thinks it'll help or hurt you.
