We have all heard sinners in public or on a campus sniveling or whining and saying:
DON'T TAKE MY PICTURE! OR YOU CAN'T FILM ME!
And then there is the police officer that wants the camera shut off before he tells you the law. We all know, witnesses do LIE, lawyers have been known to LIE, judges have LIED, even police officers can LIE but a video does NOT LIE nor taint a story and is not bias.
IT'S YOUR WITNESS WITHOUT PREJUDICE!
You have the right to FILM your work!

Here is a site that gives you downloadable guide, because we have all heard sinners in public or on a campus sniveling or whining saying “Don’t take make picture” or “You can’t film me.” And there is of course the police officer that wants the camera shut off before he tells you the law.

WHY DO WE FILM?
WELL WE DO THIS UNDER ADVICE OF COUNSEL, BECAUSE THERE ARE TIMES WHERE CAMPUS POLICE, EVENT SECURITY OR CITY POLICE CAN ARREST YOU FALSELY, CITE YOU OR WRONGLY CHARGE YOU WITH BREAKING A LAW. SOMETIMES AN OFFICER WILL JUST RESPOND TO AN UNTRUTHFUL CALL AND HAVING YOU MOVE DOWN THE STREET IS NOTHING MORE THAN A QUICK FIX.
THIS IS WHERE YOUR CAMERA COMES INTO PLAY.
PEOPLE LIE IN COURT ALL THE TIME, I’M SURPRISED WE DON’T PLACE OUR HAND ON THE BIBLE AND SAY “I PROMISE TO LIE, STRETCH THE STORY AND PERJURE MYSELF, SO HELP ME god.”
WITNESSES LIE, DOCTORS LIE, LAWYERS LIE, POLICE LIE AND EVEN MINISTERS LIE. BUT A CAMERA DOES NOT LIE, IS NOT BIAS, NOR WILL IT BE PREJUDICE. IT WILL EXPOSE THE TRUTH WITH CONTEXT AS A WITNESS SHOULD.
LIVING IN AMERICA TODAY, TAKE YOUR BIBLE, BANNER, EXTRA TRACTS AND FOR HEAVENS SAKE DO NOT FORGET YOUR VIDEO CAMERA OR POCKET TAPE RECORDER.
OFTEN TIMES IT WILL KEEP THE CAMPUS POLICE, EVENT SECURITY AND CITY POLICE IN CHECK, WHICH IN TURN KEEPS THE ANGRY MOB IN CHECK.
REMIND THE POLICE OR SECURITY THAT YOUR CAMERA IS YOUR WITNESS AND YOU WILL NOT REMOVE A WITNESS FROM A POSSIBLE CRIME. THEY HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR IF A CAMERA IS ON, BUT IF YOU HEAR “SHUT THAT CAMERA OFF” AS THEY WALK UP TO YOU……DIG IN.
AS CHRISTIANS WE DO NOT FEAR CAMERAS, FOR GOD HIMSELF IS THE BIGGEST PAPARAZZI EVER, AS HE RECORDS EVERYTHING, EVEN IDOL WORDS.
