You will then have to show on the balance of probabilities (lesser than beyond all resonable doubt for prosectuion) that your mate slipped the cannbis in and you didn't know. This isn't simply saying "you're guilty tough".
Hmm, I suspect that once the police have deleted the memory card in the cam, they won't be worried about the person having to prove 'reasonable doubt'..
Munque-Chick: I have seen police officers rip film out of a journalist's camera. I've seen police smash cameras, whilst other officers were busy sticking the boot into protestors. I once witnessed a BBC crew attacked, by riot police, to prevent them filming the police using excessive force.
The institution you work for is often used as a political tool, to suppress legitimate, democratic protest. Protests that actually seek to highlight the erosion of all of our liberties, yours included.
During one demonstration in London, word got round that police had been issued with baton-rounds, rubber bullets. I spoke to a photographer, bloodied and dazed, who told us that he'd been round the back of some police vans, unnoticed, and seen some officers getting out of a van, with baton round launchers. He started to take pics, and was suddenly attacked by other police. They smashed his camera to bits, then took him and pushed him back into the crowd.
Don't be fooled. Suppression of the Truth is happening. It's always been happening. Censorship of the media has always been going on, in the 'Public Interest'.
As for the 'impartiality' of the BBC; don't make me laugh. Marginally more impartial than Sky, perhaps, but not much.
