They’ve all got a reason or two to be concerned about police abuse. Now they’ll get their own Flex-approved dashcam!
So heads up to all law enforcement officers. Our Dashcam Heroes are on the streets, ready to flex their rights if need be!
“I flex my rights constantly. And I tell the people I love and know their rights.” -Manny Arsiaga, Austin, Texas “In court the police officer lied and told the judge I reached for my gun during our encounter. Yet he could not explain that if that were true why he did not draw his firearm on me at anytime.” -Josh Barry, Camp Hill, Pennsylvania “I’m constantly being intimidated and harassed when I do try to assert my rights. Police tell me that they know the law better than me because they are here to enforce the law.” -James Burdine-Bermudez, Miami, Florida “I’m an Army veteran. After getting out of Active Duty service in 2009, I became outspoken concerning the expansion of the Police State and Surveillance State here in the U.S” -Nathan Cox, Mechanicsville, Virginia “The sad fact is, just because someone’s wearing a uniform doesn’t mean they’re a good guy. Having a dashcam can be used as evidence of less than honorable behavior, and can get the ‘super cops’ and the ‘creepy cops’ off the streets.” -Rhonda Davis, Houston, Texas “I was recently stopped and cited (illegally) for toggling my headlights to warn oncoming drivers of a hidden speed trap on the downhill of an overpass I had just passed. After informing the officer of a recent Federal court ruling which upheld my right to do exactly what I had done he still chose to issue a citation.” -Christian Frederick, Coral Springs, Florida “I am the one who uploaded the world famous 4th of July DUI checkpoint video in 2013. It got over 4 million views in just a couple of days.” -Chris Kalbaugh Jr., Murfreesboro, Tennesee “I’m a Latino Mexican-American in my late-twenties. That has lead, in my opinion, to a lot of racial profiling. I’m also a concealed carry permit holder and an advocate for medicinal marijuana.” -Rene Martinez, Kansas City, Kansas “Being a hispanic teenager, I know all about police profiling. Most teenagers know about police profiling as most officers take advantage of teens who don’t yet fully know their rights.” -Lorenzo Murillo, Elkhart, Indiana “I am a bit of a night owl and I like to drive a lot at night. For some reason the police here think driving late at night is probable cause to pull you over. I have been pulled over several times driving after midnight. I’d love a dashcam to record these encounters, both good and bad.” -Eric Newer, Olathe, Kansas “A dashcam is a very important tool against the cops who have one already, and we need it to even the playing field. It’s an important invention for us civilians. It gives us another tool and muscle to flex our rights.” -Lloyd Rodriguez, Wanaque, New Jersey “I’m a young male driver. I drive a red sports car, and if that doesn’t draw attention, I don’t know what will.” -Scott Roney, Voorheesville, New York “Since a lot of my bumper stickers have to do with controversial topics like ending the War on Drugs, they attract a lot of police attention and I’m pretty sure they’ve gotten me pulled over a few times. I’ve been questioned about whether there are drugs in the car or where I was coming from or headed to.” -Sam Tracy, Washington, DC “I need a dashcam is because I’m an accountability activist. I have been active in documenting issues from local politics to major street protests. I have tested and pushed the boundaries of government accountability and documenting it but there is much more work that needs to be done.” -David Verner, Wasilla, Alaska “I am running for State Rep in Missouri’s 79th district. I would like to use my dashcam to record the constant abuse I see, to make a point to affluent voters in the southern part of my district: they are paying taxes just to make their neighbors suffer, and I can change that.” -Robert Vroman, St. Louis, Missouri
