They think they're above the law. Airport officers are the worst though.
Which begs the question: Was in fact within his rights to record them and refuse to show ID?
They can record you, why shouldn't one be able to record them to make sure they're not abusing of power?
In one of the other videos, a cop from new mexico said it's ok to video tape him.
You may legally record the police in public (some cops either don't know that or lie and intimidate)
As for the second question, it is more of a per-state law thing. When do I have to show the police my ID
This is a 'Time Lapse' of what and by whom....doesn't any of that matter?
To be fair whilst I understand that people don't like being monitored chances are records of "random guy caught taking photos late at night" are not going to do much and most times probably won't even be filed cause of the paperwork involved. Sometimes giving a little just helps ease the situation somewhat.
