Can I legally record audio or video when a officer is abusing my civil rights. I had a office call me a asshole. he said something about a black shirt. I said I did't know anything. I reply speek to the bartend she would know. he ran my ID and called me a Asshole. 2minutes later a female officer pulls and said shut up asshole. then she said to leave so I walked home. I didn't do anything. I was talking to a lady sitting in her car. I have no proof that officer called me names. I want to know how to protect my self. I call the sherif's info officer. He said it was freedom of speech and officers can use that type of language. Information officer told me to stop drinking and I would have this problem. I'm lucky enough to go out once a month to have a beer. Where do you get a officers code of conduct from?
