The ACLU is making it easier to record and send video of police encounters. I'm sure that disturbs the police, but it's a terrific tool in the hands of citizens.

LA Times:

The ACLU of California on Thursday unveiled a free smartphone app that allows users to send video of questionable police activity directly to the organization, protecting the recordings even if officers confiscate or try to tamper with the phones.

“We want to multiply the number of cameras that can be trained on police officers at any time,” said Hector Villagra, executive director of the ACLU of Southern California. “They need to know that anything they do could be seen by the entire world.”

Let's hope this changes what happens when police take hold of people's phones and delete their videos.
