Illinois remains one of the few states where it is illegal to record what cops are up to. Some vestige of the "wire tap" law. As if.
“Citizens are being charged under the current law for doing nothing more than what thousands of citizens do every day in Illinois: pull out our cell phone, open up the camera, and start recording,” says the sponsor, State Rep. Elaine Nekritz, D-Northbrook. “With the G-8 and NATO summits coming to Chicago in May, thousands of journalists and attendees are at great risk of prosecution.”It is time for the rights of the citizens to reach beyond the rights of the cops. Especially of the right of the cops to hide what they are doing.
Roaches, and bad cops, are afraid of the sunlight.
