Now, the Department of Justice is asking a judge to rule in his favor.

In a statement, attorneys say: “The right to record police officers while performing duties in a public place, as well as the right to be protected from the warrantless seizure and destruction of those recordings, are not only required by the Constitution, they are consistent with our fundamental notions of liberty.”

Which part don't the police understand?
