He had the right to remain silent...not the ability.
If you're going to post something for ALL THE WORD to see, use some common sense.

He didn't post the videos, the police stopped him and seized the memory card from the camera.

I don't know what the laws are for search and seizure where he is but if it was legal for them to do that then I'm good with it. I don't know what the traffic violation laws are where he is but if the sentence is two years he should've known that and he decided to speed anyway.
I don't see a difference in watching what he did on his video or on someone else's video. What if another motorist or a police officer videoed him doing those things and handed it to the police? I think most people would agree it could be used as evidence.

Just a random thought...if this was in the UK would the speedo be reading KPH instead of MPH?? Any way not knowing the local laws that got the rider his initial pinch, what right did they have to search his personal property? I've requested a supervisor twice now when I was being pushed into a unwarranted search.

His speedometer is reading in miles per hour, as it should in the UK.

good luck to the Vancouver police...unless the video shows exactly who is riding the bike they have no case...Bwahahahahahahahahaha
ask the "occupiers" from down in Burns Oregon how good it is to video tape yourself breaking the law (it leads to "no bail")...

He had turned himself in, but was later acquitted.

Randy Scott denies he was speeding again on Trans-Canada highway - British Columbia - CBC News

Not sure what the law says in the US but in Canada they can check the video if they have resonable suspicion it will show something incriminating. For instance guy gets pulled over for dangerous driving and is wearing a helmet cam. Under Canadian/British law you can only claim unfair search and seizure and sue for it they don't find anything. If they found incriminating evidence then they obviously had a reasonable suspicion to search your bike or car.
