    I didn't make this point, but others did -- he wasn't the only one filming, but he's the one whose actions led him into confrontation with the police.

    They were clearly dealing with what they perceived as a real situation, given the size of the police  response there -- and there's this jerk who not only thinks he's the self-appointed watchdog on the police, but is parading his rotwiler around, isn't keeping a respectful distance and is  blaring music from his car as if this was some entertainment spectacle/street party. And, this jerk refuses to turn down his music....

    Also, courts have never held you have no expectation of privacy on a public street -- they've just ruled that the police may briefly stop you and even frisk you if they have a reasonable, articulable suspicion.
