I used to do this as well, but I fucked my camera up one night longboarding and that ended that.
When I was younger we used to film ourselves skateboarding, throwing mattresses out of hotel windows, garbage cans off roofs, running around in a gorilla suit, etc etc. One time we asked a pair of state troopers to arrest us on camera. They asked me if it was on, I said no (it was), they laughed and said they could just see that on the news the next day. They weren't dicks or anything about it, but this was way before youtube.
I think cops will **** with the idiots that **** with them. If you leave them alone, chances are you'll be left alone. Get pulled over and give them an attitude and you might get ******* thrown in the back of the car. Nothing to hide, nothing to worry about (to a point).
Years ago I was arrested for pot. We left the bar and late at night I was hitting a bowl pack on the way home. Little did I know it was right in front of a cop. They pulled us over, I told them where it was and that it was only me that had it (me, my ex and her 2 friends). On the way to the parking lot they took me to, the cop was talking to me like a normal human being, until like an idiot I asked if I would get the pot back. He flipped out and I ended up in handcuffs in the back seat for awhile longer while I watched him flirt with the girls. Eventually they let me go with a promise to appear (charges eventually dropped).
Point is, I've fucked with cops my whole life. If you **** with them, expect to get fucked around with back. If you have nothing to hide and can handle keeping you mouth shut, the only thing you'll probably end up with is a ticket.
