Someone made a good point. If the police arrested Jason for “interference with police” after they would not stop recording then. Isn’t the deletion of that video tampering with evidence at the scene of a crime?
It seems anytime an officer destroys any video of ayn arrest they are committing a crime themselves. They have just destroyed evidence in the person being arrested case regardless if it favors the police or the arrested.
If Jason and his sisters charges are not kicked out of court they should fight any verdict on the grounds that the police destroyed exculpatory evidence at the scene of the arrest.
If this type of case is pushed into a court then the police will have to stop destroying property when they make an arrest.

If those guys who threw out the fireworks and the laptop after the bombing get jail time for it, then these police need to do some time also. The evidence that it was done deliberately and with prior knowledge is even more clear in the case described in this post. It’s that simple. Any other result is additional evidence of the system protecting itself.
So, who protects us from the system? Answer: Us.
That is a great point!
tampering with evidence
obstruction of justice
illegal search and seizure / robbery
3rd degree assault, if they grabbed the guy in the process of grabbing his camera
that’s what comes to mind immediately
