Now this is one of the most discusting ways to apply a law I have ever heard of. A man goes to court to fight a citation that he thinks is ridicilous. He has a digital recorder with him and after being denied that a court reporter record the trial he uses it. Now faces a 3 felony counts of wiretapping. Judge says that he violated his privacy. Apparently the whole expectation of privacy isn't in Illinois law. That should be fixed asap and this particular judge should face consequences for perverting the law like this.

This article also has a comprehensive list of incidents where recording officials has protected citizens.

Balko highlights a pending case against Michael Allison, an Illinois man who is facing 75 years in prison for recording a judge during a hearing - after Allison's request to have a court reporter record the hearing were denied.

Thanks for the story, link etc.

I read all of the article and find the fact that James Pasco stating that police officers don't lie and that there is no reason to record them dumb, because the story then goes on to list 10 examples of when they have been and why, and also makes it clear that most of the time the officers in question are aquitted for their crimes.

This just proves that James Pasco is also a liar too, or at least deluded....way to go.

And "they" seriously have to question why people don't trust cops?....sheesh!

Maybe he was trying to be sarcastic? It's pretty obvious that cops lie, sometimes alot too.
