Compliance with orders is no defense!

Guy in Florida does exactly what the cop tells him, gets arrested anyway. Because cellphone.

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The charge against freelance disc jockey Lazaro Estrada is obstruction of justice.  He was arrested on St. Patrick's Day after using his cell phone to record a video of an arrest at a Cutler Bay store where he was spinning records for a promotional gig.
Miami-Dade Ofc. Michael Valdez arrived at the store to arrest owner Andre Trigiano on outstanding misdemeanor traffic charges.
Estrada says he began recording the episode with his iPhone only after the officer removed Trigiano from the store and threw the handcuffed man to the ground.

In a police state, just being there is an arrestable offense.
