Hey

Iv seen it several times now, someone filming an arrest in a public place or something and the police will turn on the camera man often with force and removing the phone and deleating what they want. Is it a crime to film police in this manner? If they spot the camera man and order them stop filming is it a crime to continue? Can they give that order at all?

Heres an example.
