Re: Flocke Kroes Guilty - FAIL!
The reason they are taped is because the police kept misreporting the interviews. For more US police fun, see this report on a bodycam showing a policeman planting evidence..
Also current in the US, they have a law that lets the police steal anything valuable from you, and its up to you to sew the police force to get it back
So generally any protection a tinfoil hat can provide is worth the money.
