“Also, if you are recording a police officer struggling to take a suspect into custody it would be greatly appreciated that you either use your cell phone to call for more help or put your phone away and lend a hand.”
This is the worst advice i have read on this forum. Calling for more help..... maybe. Very likely that the officer (under standard protocol in almost every force in the usa) has been in contact with his precinct from the moment the stop was initiated. However it may have been some unforseen situation and if you call local emergency (911 usa) no harm in that... but helping subdue? Are you insane? Do i have explain why thats a horrible idea?
