Dallas Police Association against citizens filming police

The police association says they support dashcams and bodycams. Of course, those devices are property of the department and would be operated by the same caliber of officer that would turn it off while another officer plants evidence. In an almost laughable twist, the Dallas Police operate a program called Iwatch that requests that citizens spy on their neighbors and send in video and photos via a smartphone app. To recap: a citizen is apparently ok while spying on neighbors and providing evidence to law enforcement and runs no risk of harm, but when a citizen is filming a police officer, suddenly the video is less reliable and the camera operator may be in danger.
